QKR Stampede Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello, again!

Can you believe it is almost the end of January?  Now we just have to get through February & part of March before spring arrives!  HURRAY!!!!!

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!

I chose digi # 16910 - Nurse for my card.

It's always a great idea to have some get well cards on hand!  And since my stash was getting really low, I chose this cute ragdoll nurse.

Have a great weekend!

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.

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!
