Hello, friends!

Can you believe January is half over already!  I am counting the days down until spring gets here!  I hate cold and snow & ice and want to just stay home & hibernate all winter!  How about you?  I bet I'm not the only one who feels this way!

Today's challenge at Dies R Us is "Winter Blues"......put on your thinking caps & come up with your best version of "Winter Blues" and you could be the winner of a great gift voucher to our amazing store.  There is no other website out there where you can find such an impressive number of die companies in one place!  And the shipping rates are also among the lowest around.

For my card, I used the following dies:  Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers, Memory Box Snowglobe Bases, Poppy Stamps Forest Village, and Precious Marieke Snowflake Corner.

Be sure you head over to the daily inspiration blog as well!

Now is the time to use some of those new dies I am sure many of you got for Christmas!

QKR Stampede Challenge - Clean & Simple

Hello, ladies!

It's Friday already & time for our latest QKR Stampede challenge!  The theme for today is "Clean & Simple" and this is really, really hard for me to do!  I LOVE clean & simple cards, but just can't do them well.  And to make this even more of a challenge for me, I decided to try out some new watercolor pens!  I printed the digi # 21001 - Hibiscus & Bee on watercolor paper and this was the result.

I had lots of fun doing the watercolors & will definitely try them again!  It's your turn to see what you can come up with!  You could be the big winner & get your choice of some great new digi stamps!

QKR Stampede Challenge - Anything that makes you feel warm!

Hello, friends!

It's Friday again & time for this week's QKR Stampede weekly challenge.  The theme this time is a fun one!  Anything that makes you feel warm!  That gives you a lot of options, doesn't it?  For me, it was an easy choice.  I love all cats and all dogs! Well, basically, all critters! Since moving to my new home in Nebraska, I now have Canadian geese on the bank across from my sidewalk.  Awesome!!! And they stay here year round!  Even better!!  A neighbor told me there are also deer & fox but I haven't seen either yet.  My digi choice for today was digi # 20203 -Waiting Dog.

I can't wait to see what you choose for the things that make YOU feel warm!  If you are the winner, you will have your choice of some darling digi stamps!  Head on over to the QKR Stampede blog!

Catch you again soon!

Dies R Us Challenge- Anything Goes

Happy New Year!!!

I hope you all had a safe New Year's Eve!  And let me be among the first to wish you a happy, healthy & wonderful 2017!

Now that the hustle & bustle of Christmas is over & things will begin to go back to normal, you may find yourself with some extra free time.  Take advantage of it & join us for the latest Dies R Us challenge!!  The theme for this challenge is Anything Goes & that leaves you a lot of room to be really creative!  The only rule is you must use at least one die.  If you are the winner, you could find yourself shopping at the amazing Dies R Us store with a new gift voucher!

For my card, I chose Poppy Stamps Cottage Corner & Tutti Designs Swirly Thanks dies.  They make a really feminine thank you card, don't they?

The great thing about the Cottage Corner die is that it also embosses!  It doesn't show up as well in this picture as it does in real life.

Be sure you always check out the Daily Inspiration Blog at Dies R Us too!  Great designers give you amazing ideas every day!

QKR Stampede Challenge - Snowman or Snowflakes

Hello, everyone!

I hope all of you made it safely through the holidays and are relaxing at long last after all the hustle & bustle of the Christmas season!  And we are almost up to 2017 already!  Where did the year go?

For those of you who already have your tree down & have a bit of free time, the QKR Stampede challenge for this week is Snowman or Snowflakes.  Maybe you could make a cute winter card for someone (or even start on next year's cards!).  The QKR Store has tons of darling snowmen.  I chose Digi # 15903 Dancing Snowman for my card.

He has such a happy smile!  Apparently, he is thrilled with all this cold & snowy weather!  I'm sure the rest of us have a slightly different angle on this than he does!

Grab your supplies & see what you can come up with!  You could have some brand new digi stamps to play with for the new year!

See you soon!

QKR Stampede Challenge - Santa

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Since this will be my last post before the big day, I want to wish everyone a fabulous holiday!  I hope you all get to enjoy the holiday surrounded by those you love & wish all of you safe travels if you have to go out of town to do that!  This will be my first Christmas as a Nebraska resident!  What a relief not to have to worry about driving three hours to spend the holidays with my daughter anymore!  As many of you know, we can post these to our blogs ahead of time & simply schedule the day they will appear.  We are having our first snowfall here right now (December 3rd) and while it is beautiful to look at, I'm hoping it will be weeks before we see another one!  I have never been a fan of winter! ha ha  Give me a beautiful spring or summer day any time!

The theme for this weeks QKR Stampede challenge is "Santa" which should make it really easy for you!  I chose Digi # 5201 - Santa Bear's List for my card.

It looks like "Santa" is checking his list to see who gets the good stuff & who gets coal!  I hope all of you get the "good" stuff!  Merry Christmas, everyone!  And don't forget what this season is really in celebration of!

Catch you next week!
