Royal Kat Monday!

Hi all! Welcome again to Royal Kat Monday! Hopefully you've bopped over here from Penny's blog. If not, please head on back to the beginning and check out all of the other awesome creations!

This week, we had an awesome picture as inspiration and I made, (in my opinion) an equally awesome card took a picture of it AND... can't find the USB cord for the camera. Sigh, one of the drawbacks of keeping the house clean at all times for potential showings is that things get put in the wrong places. Grrr. Anywho, I pulled out an oldie but goodie that incorporated the blues and the circles of the inspirational picture.

This was the Sewing Girl stamp and I looked in the store and unfortunately don't see her there. Now, the good news is that ALL of the stamps in the store are 50% off! Yes, you can get some RIDICULOUS deals right now! Why? Because the Queen is switching up the stamps and we're going to rubber!! YEAH!! I am SO execited and can't wait to get my hands on the new stamps!

So, that ends it for me, head on over to Wynneth and see what she has waiting for you!

Royal Kat Monday!

WOW, I can't believe another week is over! I swear this one just flew by! Things have been pretty busy around here. Kev and I are in the process of trying to sell out house and let me tell you, it is a pain! I am SO tired of having to keep the house immaculate. We've had a lot of showings but so far no bites.We did have one person provide feedback and they said that they weren't considering the house because we had too many things in the closet and they couldn't see how big they were. Really??!! I mean seriously. How about you look at all the stuff and think, "Wow, look how much of MY stuff could fit into that closet." I digress...

Anywho, today is the QKD blog hop and hopefully you arrived here from Penny's blog. If not, please head on back to the beginning and see what you've missed! Today's challenge was to use an older stamp and make something using the colors yellow, blue and green. I decided to resurrect something I made a while ago using the Shroomies stamp.

I just love this paper... I colored my shroomies with Copics and added some embellishments. Too cute!

Well, that's all for me today! Head on over to Wynneth's blog and see what awesomeness she has waiting for you!

QKD Royal Kat Monday

Good morning all! Told you I was back. Still only one post this week but I feel more coming on. So, hopefully you hopped here from Penny's blog, if not, head on back to the beginning and see all of the awesomeness in order!

This week we had a fantastic sketch and were to use some of the new releases for this month. I'm on the class team and don't receive the monthly stamps so I used one of my new favorites from the shop.

LOVE THIS!! Love the birds, the spool, the birdies, FANTASTIC! I used some pink paislee
paper I had in my stash and colored the image with my copics.
Well, that's all for me! Head on over to Wynneth's and see what she has waiting for you!

Royal Kat Wednsday and back from a LONG break

Good Morning all!! I'm back! Well, I hope that I really am back this time. I haven't been around much over the last month or so, we had some pretty crappy personal things going on. I'm not ready to share and I'm not sure if I want to have it out in the universe. Maybe someday, but not now...

In the mean time, I started a new job and I also started Jenny Craig! Kev and I decided that we wanted to be more active and change our lives. So often it seemed that we were waiting for an event to come along which would make us behave differently but we realized that it had to start with us. So, we are on a quest to be healthier and more active. First week of Jenny down and I have lost 6.6 pounds!! Pretty sweet, now let's keep it going!!

I also got back into the craft room this week and was able to whip up a little something for the Queen Kat blog hop. I'm a little late with my posting but please start back at the beginning and give the ladies some love! I know they have some AWESOME new stamps to show off! For me, I used one of my favorites, the Green Fairy.

I kept it pretty simple and flowery since it is Spring and Easter Sunday. I just wanted something bright and happy. I think I achieved it!

Well, that's about it for me! Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back soon!
