QKD blog hop

Happy Memorial Day!!! Before I get to today's hop, I want to thank those who serve, have served, and/or have family members who have or are serving in the military!

Now, hop time, you should have started from the QKD blog, then hopped along, made it to Jules' blog, and now mine. Today's challenge was anything but a card, which sounds like an easy thing but it was really hard once I started trying to figure out what I wanted to do.

But, I decided to do a layout; I used one of the new release Fashion Dress stamps. These are so cool!!!

Thanks for stopping by; now it is time to head off to Lara's blog to see what she has for you. Don't forget that Tuesday's group also hops tomorrow with more projects.

May 24 - QKD Blog Hop

Are you ready for some inspiration in this week's blog hop? You should have started at the beginning at the QKD blog and then hopped along to Jules' blog and now you are here.

Here is our inspiration for this week.

I had so many great ideas; I thought about making some panels to look like the architecture and then I thought about focusing on the saxophone player and doing a card about music. But, I finally did a birthday card and went with some pink to go along with the soft colors of the ad.

I used Che's Bunny Chan Stamp for this soft card. I know Che's stamps are usually not what you would think of when you think soft and pink, but Bunny Chan really works here!

Thanks for stopping by, but now it is time to head to Lara's blog; see you next week!

QKD Monday Blog Hop!!

May is almost half over and it amazes me that it is time for another Monday Blog Hop for Queen Kat Designs!

I am so in love with the new rubber stamps! You have got to check out what all is in the store and if something is not there yet, make sure you shoot QK a message and she can get it for you!! Don't you just love that!!!

Okay, back to the hop. You should have started from the QKD blog, then hopped to Jules' blog, and now you are here. The challenge was to create a monochromatic card of any color. I went with my favorite color of green!! I also used the Sock Monkey set! this set is so cute!!!

I used the monkey with the birthday hat, but there is also a plain monkey and one with a birthday present! So versatile!!!

Okay, now it is time to hop to Lara's blog to see what she has in store for us.

QKD Monday Hop

It is time for the Monday blog hop here at Queen Kat Designs. Did you get to play in the Rubber crop this past weekend? There were some fabulous creations made. Check out this cool project made by Nina.

Back to the hop though, you should have started the hop at the QKD blog and then hopped from Jules' blog to mine. We worked with the sketch found at the QKD blog, and for the sketch I pulled out one of the Mommy stamps by Beth. These are just fabulous! I love the little heart elements that she has added. I rotated the sketch for my card, but I still love how it turned out. The paper is some from a past QKD Royal kit! I love having these kits because I don't have to think about matching the papers and elements. It is all done for me!

Now it is time to head off to Lara's blog to see what she has created for this week. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget the Tuesday group will be hopping tomorrow starting at the QKD blog!

The C Word

I can't think of a single person who has not been affected by cancer in one form or another. I have lost several loved ones to cancer and have some who are currently fighting and surviving.

Polka Dot Plum has come together to create a collaborative kit called Perspective. All proceeds from the kit will go to the National Cervical Cancer Coalition

For just $7.00, you can get a fabulous collab and help a worthwhile benefit! Image is linked to the store.

Hear Ye Hear Ye!! QKD Hop Time

It is that time again -- Monday!!! and with it being the first Monday of the month, it is even better because that means it is the New Release blog hop for QKD!!

Okay, so you should have started this hop from the QKD blog and then hopped along to Jules blog and now to my blog.

The focus of this week's hop is the sketch that you can find on the QKD blog. And here's my take on it

I loved playing with the Sock Monkey Birthday set! These are just two of the images in the set. They are so cute and fun!!!

Now, it is time to hop to Lara's blog to see what she has in store. And speaking of the store, so much going on in the store. There is the NSD sale; the remaining acrylic stamps are 60% off through May 4 and the rubber stamps have crept their way into the store as well! so excited about this conversion to rubber!!!

And to celebrate the change, QKD is having a crop this weekend; so make sure you go and sign up for the QKD Spruz Spot so you do not miss all of the fun!!!
