QKR Stampede - Keep Your Eyes on the Ball

Here is a card I made for the QKR Stampede blog challenge this week.  The theme is "Keep Your Eyes On The Ball".    I chose to use this cute Tennis Bear #16113.   I paper pieced her dress and colored everything else with copics.  I used the Our Daily Bread Vintage Pattern die.  I was going to add a sentiment and ribbon to this card, but I love the way it looked without it.  I added three pink rhinestones and it was finished.

Come over to the QKR Stampede blog to upload your card and to check out the other design team members cards. 

Thanks, for stopping by today.

I made this card for the Inspiration challenge over at Splitcoast.  We visited a site that have beautiful art work on newsprint or dictionary pages.    I used a page from an old book and I used the MFP Big City stamp for the (NY) skyline.    I used distress inks to sponge the background.

Thanks, for looking at my card.

QKR - Make A Shaped Card

Hello, my crafty friends.  It is time for another challenge over at the QKR Stampeded Blog.
The challenge is to make a shaped card.  (no squares or rectangles)  I used stamps by Eureka -
Puppy Peeker #25405 and Baseball Balloon #25409.   The puppy has found his owners baseball and I hope he doesn't chew it up.  :)

This little pup seems to be smiling.  I think he would look cute with a pocket die or stamp.

I used Spellbinders scalloped heart dies and Sizzix regular shaped heart dies.   The red heart has been embossed using a dots embossing folder. 

I hope you will come over to the QKR Blog and join us for out challenge.  You do not have to use QKR images. 

Thanks,  for coming by  and taking a look at my card.    

Be sure and take a look at my blog candy on the side bar.

Things with Wings

The challenge over at QKR Stampede Blog is to make a card using the theme "Things With Wings".
Looks like my bear Picking Flowers #24184 has developed a problem with this little bee.   He sort of looks like a jailbird in his orange outfit.  ~smile~  

I hope you will join the challenge and show us your project that has something with wings on it.  Two lucky players will win some cute digi's from the QKR Store.

I am going to share a card with you today that I made for one of the Dare To Get Dirty challlenges over at Splitcoast Stampers.    I used the "Swirly Bird" Stampin' Up stamp set.  I wanted to make it a bright and happy card.  I think the lime card stock helped to achieve my goal.  The celebrate dies is by Our Daily Bread Designs.
