I went to the store at Queen Kat Designs just to snag a link for a post that I was working on and I was floored because somehow Vicki has slipped in some stamps that I haven't seen and now I am sitting here drooling over them!

Check this out!

Dragon Snuggles

Victorian Kitty


Faces of Time

Clowning Around

Okay, now to figure out which ones to buy!!!


Day 4 of my children being gone to camp! This is their first experience (mine also!) and I was a little apprehensive about how they would feel about being away from home for five days and four nights ---mmm, well, the quick words from my female child -- I'm having fun; this is great. Oops, got to go, bye. (this is basically what she told me on both day 1 and 2). And it isn't until day 3 when the male child talks to me, only because he broke his glasses and needed his other pair! No, Mom, I love you and miss you.

I am so happy and sad at the same time; my babies are growing up and who knew that I would be the one who is "home-sick" because it isn't really the same without all the noise and hugs and laughter from my two!

QKD T3 Blog Hop

Today it is time for the T3 Blog Hop! This week was a sketch challenge, using a fabulous sketch by Roni. Before my card, just a quick reminder of the rules.

Here are the rules of Triple Tiara Tuesday:

- Each week 3 Royal Court Members will host a challenge on their blog.

- You start right at the QKD blog and visit the challenge hosts on their personal blogs. (Leave us some love and a link to your project so we can return the favor. *wink*)

- QKD will offer up a $25 stamp gift certificate for the players to compete for each month. So if people enter each week, they have 4 chances to win the monthly prize of $25.

- The contestants will post their link to their card on the Inlinkz widget here on the blog. (There will be 1 per month.)

Ok, so this week, there are only two people, Wynneth and myself. Here's my card using the sketch and the new unicorn stamp.

June Heat Wave

There is no reason or rhyme to the weather lately across the US. Tornadoes have hit so many different regions; flooding and droughts are happening side by side. And now, here it is the first week of June and the heat is almost unbearable.

So, to beat the heat, we are staying in as much as possible. Staying in means I have time to scrap some; this week, I worked on some cards for QKD (two I can't share yet because the stamps haven't been released yet) but here are a couple that I made using a cool new stamp called Giver of Light.

Of course, if you look at my cards, when I first used the stamp, I wasn't thinking sun behind the girl, for the first one, I was thinking Earth Day.

And not sure exactly where I was headed with this one, but I love how she turned out.
