Fancy Folds

Welcome back to our new challenge but I must apologies for the
late posting.

It is Meighan here with a our new challenge which is Fancy Folds.

So please join us and share some Christmas projects.

Our challenge is sponsored by QKR Stampede, and the generous prize is 5 images of your choice.  

QKR Stampede

Here is a little about our sponsor:

Do you have a sense of humor? Are you looking for a cute stamp? Then, we are the company for you! QKR Stampede is the somewhat cute somewhat quirky rubber and digital stamp company. We showcase the artwork of Ken Herrod, who had a unique, somewhat quirky style with lots of humor and character. You are sure to get a chuckle out of our stamps! We have been offering our unique stamps and supplies to the craft industry for over 15 years. At QKR Stampede our images are available as un-mounted, natural red rubber stamps OR as digital stamps! If QKR Stampede Stamps aren't exactly what you are looking for, don’t miss out on the sister companies: Eureka Stamps, Biblical Impressions Rubber Stamps, or the newest addition; Alluring Impressions.

Let's take a look at what our fabulous DT have to inspire you, please visit their blogs for a closer look.

Anything but a Card

Hi this week we have a brand new challenge. Anything but a card, That could be a gift, tag, home decor or whatever your hearts desire, just no cards Before I get onto showing you our inspiration for this week, I would like to say goodbye to Anne, who has been a wonderful member of our Design Team for the past 5 months, but has decided to step down. We would like to wish her well in all her endeavors and hope she will pop by sometime to say hello.

Our theme for you this week is

Anything But a Card

Our sponsor this time is are

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!


Here are the projects from our lovely designers
