Queen Kat Challenge

Hey all! I'm adjusting to the time change so I'm posting kind of late this morning. Sorry! I decided to organize a bi-weekly challenge for some of us girls over at Queen Kat Designs. I love being able to have a challenge every other week at smARTworks so I thought it would be cool to start one with QKD too using only QKD stamps!

So, here is our very first round was provided by Penny and her challenge was to use tan, white, gray, black, and red. Love the colors! However, I had no gray (hmmmm, I guess I need to take a trip to HL to fix that!) so I just stuck with tan, white, black, and red. Here is my take! I stamped the paisley in black and then added some dots and stripes with my white Souffle pen.

  • STAMPS- Paisley, Happy Skullz (Queen Kat Designs)
  • PAPER- kraft
  • INK- Brilliance black
  • OTHER- white Souffle pen, ribbon, rhinestones, pop dots

Make sure to check out the other QKD gals creations throughout the day!

On another note, I have to get some ideas today for the girls' birthday party invitations. It's a princess-tea party-sleepover party. I don't have any princess stamps so I was trying to come up with something sweet but not babyish. Plus I have a million other deadlines I have to get done this week also. I am excited about getting them done though because I am really looking forward to using the stamps and hopefully finding some untouched creative genius! We'll see about that though!!

On another other note, {grin} I am working on a new banner. I ended up having a lot of Joe time this weekend, which was nice. We played the Wii and looked at truck bed campers and just plain snuggled. He is really looking forward to switching shifts at the end of the month. When he does, he will have Monday-Thursday off and work Friday-Sunday on 12 hour shifts. It will be awesome to have 4 days off so we can go wherever we want and have mini vacations here and there. But, our social life will come to a dead hault (which was never really going anywhere anyway, lol) and I will have to do a lot of weekend things (birthday parties, holidays, etc..) by myself with the kids. It's definitely more of a positive thing though. I know it will be a lot better for his stress level too!

Well, I am off to make the kids lunch and get a few deadlines finished. Hope you all have a fantastic day!

P.S. This is what the girls and I did yesterday!
