Hi, gals!

Today's theme for the QKR Stampede challenge should be a favorite with EVERYONE!  I know how much we ladies love our "bling" and "sparkle" and now is your chance to shine!  Literally! ha ha
For my card, I grabbed some blue stickles and some red glitter paper!  And with the adorable digi # 2103 - Cheerleader Mouse, my card was easy to create!

I'm not sure the sparkle shows up too well on my photo, but in person, I guarantee it is full of sparkle!
I bet you all have a stash of glitter & bling that you are dying to use!  Grab it & enter the challenge. If you are the lucky winner, you win your choice of adorable digi stamps.

As a side note, our parent company QKR Stamps has decided to merge all their companies into one store and you can find everything they offer here:
 I think you will be pleased at all the new stamps!

Dies R Us Challenge - Think Spring!

Hello, friends!

I had to laugh when I saw the theme for today's Dies R Us Challenge was "Think Spring" because I have been thinking of nothing else for weeks!  I am SO tired of winter and cold and ice & snow! I bet all of you are too!  So this will be a wonderful chance to forget winter & get your thoughts on spring and summer!

The dies I used today are the following:  Marianne Design Wooden Bench (DRU will offer these periodically throughout the year when they have their Eureopean Dies), Dee's Distinctively Tree Base 2, Dee's Distinctively Tree Toppers, Lawn Fawn Spring Showers, & Impression Obsession Cat Set.

Head over to the Dies R Us Challenge Blog to enter your creation!  If you are the lucky winner, you will win a gift voucher to the amazing Dies R Us Store!

QKR Stampede Challenge - Valentine Cards!

Happy February!

Are you already thinking ahead to Valentine's Day?  Well, if not, this week's challenge at QKR Stampede should help you get in the mood!  The theme this week is Valentine's Day!  Get out your favorite images and supplies & see what you can come up with!  I decided on ddigi # 6201- Heart Box Angel for my card.

Valentines are SO much fun to make!  I combined one of my favorite dies with one of my favorite border punches for this one.  I have tons & tons of Martha Stewart punches and forget to use them. With all the dies I have, I usually grab those instead.  I'll have to make a better attempt at using them from time to time.

Are you looking forward to a romantic evening or will you be staying home with a good book like those of us who are single?  At least I will be sure to have chocolate!  ha ha

Catch you later!

The QKR Stampede challenge for this week is "Anything Goes" and that is always a favorite with everyone!  Pick out your favorite subject matter, grab your favorite "go-to" stamps and dies & see what you can come up with!
