Royal Kat Tuesday Blog Hop!

Did you have a fantastic Thanksgiving? I know I did! We had a great trip up north and did a little gambling, a little shopping AND I had tickets to see Bret Michaels on my birthday! Pretty Sweet! Now it's back to work AND working out for a few weeks until Christmas!

So, did you start at the beginning of the hop? If not, head on back and see what Nina made. As for me, I'm super excited to show off some new stamps! I got to play with Eskimo kisses this month and I think they are just ADORABLE! We had a sketch challenge this week and here's what I made.

I pulled out the cuttlebug and everything this week. :) I colored the Eskimos with my Copics to match some Basic Grey paper that I had from last season. I also embossed some snowflakes as a background, hey, Eskimos need snow, right??

Alrighty, that's all for me! Head on over and see Shannon and her awesomeness!

Tuesday Blog Hop!

Gack! Tuesday already! I hope you had a fantastic time this weekend at the birthday celebration! Did you submit your entries for the $50 in free rubbah??? FREE RUBBER! How can you resist? Any who, back to your regularly scheduled hop. Am I your second hop? I should be! if not, go see what Nina made for you.

As for me, I had to make another project with my Sagittarius stamp. He is awesomely FANTASTIC!

I colored him with Copics to match that delicious designer paper and glued it to a Miller Lite coaster I took from a restaurant a while ago. :) I roughed up the edges with a nail file and added a ribbon so he can hang from a package or a super cool holiday tree.

I know you want him, so get you to the store and get him for your very own, but in the mean time, you're done with me, so head on over to the Dark Ink Sorority and see what she has for you!

The party's over...

Can you believe it? The QKD party is over. :( Well, I guess there isn't anything left to do but clean up the mess.. Since we had such an awesome party, you know there is a TON if glitter to pick up. As my husband says, glitter is the herpes of the craft world...

I digress, and back to business, there is a SPECTACULAR give away up on the Queen Kat Blog $50 in QKD merchandise! can you imagine???!!! So, all you have to do is whip something up using a kitty image and add some bling! Then go to the blog and link yours to the site! Who knows, you might win some dough!

Here's what I did with mine...

I used Kitsune Chan for mine and colored her to match the vaguely Asian inspired designer paper. Oranges and pink and some pretty glittery scroll chipboard. And since thanks are in order for the awesome party, she thanks you a bunch!

Now don't forget to make yours and post by Monday at 10am MST!
Good Luck!

Birthday Blog Hop!

Can you believe it?? QKD turns 4 years old today! Well, I think that calls for a celebration! So let's show off all of our birthday cards!! Hopefully you came here via Nina's blog. If not, go on back to the beginning! You don;t want to miss this!!

Since QKD's b-day is November, and we November birthdays gotta represent, what could be more perfect than a birthday card showcasing our fantastic Sagittarius stamp?

Pardon my lighting, I was at least able to crop the cat out of the background. :) So, isn't he spectacular??? I colored him up with my Copics and paired him with some manly designer paper.

Now, you can't stay here all day! Go see Jules! I know she has something awesome waiting for you!!

Happy Birthday!

Royal Kat Tuesday!

YEAH, it's Tuesday! Welcome to the blog hop! Did you come from the beginning? Good!

We had the challenge of using older stamps along with some pretty fall colors. I decided to use the Turkey Stamp because its only a few days til Thanksgiving (and 10 until my birthday!)

I stamped the image in Palette Noir black ink and colored with Copics. Then I took some old paper from the stash and paired it with a fun sketch from a magazine. It amuses me. How about you?

Well, I gotta run! Go see Shannon and enjoy the hop!

Royal Tuesday Blog Hop!

Woo Hoo! It's time for another blog hop! did you start at the beginning like you should??? GOOD if not, shame, shame, head on over and see Nina's creation them come right back here!

Today, we had a fantastic sketch to work with. Me personally, I love some sketch challenges. It makes it SO much easier for me to create when I have a sketch in mind! For our challenge today I used one of my new stamps that was JUST release, Kitsune Chang.

Isn't she AWESOME??!!! I just adore Che's kitty stamps, and this one is SO fun to color! For some reason I was feeling a grey/purple color palette and I'm pretty pleased with how she turned out! If you love her too, go on over to the store and grab one up for yourself!
That's all for me today! Head on over to Shannon and check out her brilliant creation!

Royal kat Tuesday and RELEASE DAY!!

YEAH! Welcome to Royal Kat Tuesday! Not only is it time for the hop but it's time to show off some new stamps!! Now, did you start at the beginning? No, go on back and see what Nina made!

I got to play with one of Che's Zodiac Circus stamps. This month we have... Sagittarius! By FAR my very most favorite one! Why? well, that's my sign so I'm a bit partial. For the circus our Sag is a horseman, which is totally appropriate given the sign's tendency to be a bit full of ourselves.... Love me...

I paired him with some fabu paper from Bo Bunny that I recently scored at Archivers. I also colored him with my Copics and added a little bit of ribbon. He doesn't need much you know, the personality of a Sagittarius doesn't need much embellishment. :)

Alright, that's it for me, go see Shannon and her awesomeness!
