QKR Stampede Challenge # 215 - Halloween

Happy Halloween!

Thought I would say that a couple of days early as I'm not sure I will be able to post on the actual day.   A lot of things have been happening and I am actually moving to Nebraska to live!  So, in case I am busy packing (or moving) Happy Halloween!

My card for today uses digi # 14314 Riding.  There is no cuter little witch anywhere!

If you haven't already finished all your Halloween cards, come join the challenge for you chance to win some fabulous digi stamps!

Try not to eat too much candy!

QKR Stampede Challenge # 214 - Wild West

Hi, everyone!

Grab your cowboy hat & get ready for this week's wild, wild west theme! Head over to the QKR Stampede store for one of the darling images we carry!  I chose digi # 16007 Pony Express for my card today.  He was too cute to pass up, and what says the wild west better than the pony express!

This image would be perfect for a guy's birthday card wouldn't it?  And we all know how hard those are to make!

Hope your weekend will be fantastic! Enjoy the weather while it holds!  Old man winter will be here all too quickly!

Dies R Us Challenge - Fall

Hello, again!

Well, it's the 15th of the month again & time for another fun & fabulous challenge at Dies R Us Challenge Blog!  This time the theme is "Fall" and what a great theme for this time of year! The store is just filled to capacity with all kinds of wonderful fall & Halloween related dies!  As you know, our business has expanded so greatly that we even had to move to a bigger location where we can offer you even MORE fantastic dies!

For my contribution this time, I pulled out a lot of my favorite dies & just "played" with them!
It's amazing what you can come up with when you just let your imagination go!

Here are the dies I used!               Impression Obsession Cat Set
                                                      Memory Box Grand Forest Archway
                                                      Impression Obsession Leaf Cluster
                                                      Impression Obsession Bushel of Apples
                                                      Poppy Stamps Rustic Wagon

This looks exactly like my front yard (minus the wagon & apples).  The leaves have been falling since September & the sad thing is NONE of them are from a tree in MY yard!  The neighbor has a huge tree in his parking & it drops something all year long! Seeds, pods, never ends! And because of it's location, none of them drop in HIS yard!  And none of my friends will park close to it because of the birds that sit in it all day!  ha ha  

Head on over to the Dies R Us Challenge Blog & see what you can enter for a chance to win a gift certificate to the amazing store

See you soon!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

QKR Stampede Challenge # 212- Autumn Leaves

Hello, again!

Today's challenge at QKR Stampede is a perfect one for this time of the year!  I don't know about where you live, but on my street, the leaves are already starting to turn...and to FALL!  So grab your supplies & see what you can come up with & join our weekly challenge!  Here is mine post for today!  I used digi # 18806 Scarecrow & Leaves, added a couple of fun dies & he was ready to go!

You may not be able to see it, but both the pumpkins and the leaves have stitching. And, of course, no image is complete without a coat of Wink of Stella!

Enjoy your weekend!  And enjoy the fall colors while they last!  We are supposed to have an early winter!

QKR Stampede Weekly Challenge # 211 - Cut It Up! (Cutting, punches or dies)

Hello, gals!

Can you believe it is not only the end of the week, but the last day of September?  Where did the summer go!  Guess we have to enjoy the next month before the weather starts to cool & winter comes sliding in again.  I guess it was a good choice on my part to do a Christmas card for this weeks challenge!  ha ha  Once I saw this digi, I just HAD to have it!  This little charmer is digi # 35403 Holly Moose!  Have you ever seen a moose this much into the holiday spirit before?

Since the challenge was to also use either punches or dies, I grabbed for my favorite dies, Frantic Stamper Holly Card Band & Cherry Lynn Holly Corner.  They just seemed the perfect compliment to this little guy and the holly paper.

I also made this card with the same stamp & paper.  Love, love, love this image!

Grab your favorite stamps, dies or punches & see what you can come up with for your entry!

Enjoy your weekend!
