I made some cards!!

Before I start.. I want to let you know.. There's a party going on... come over to the QKD blog tomorrow and see the new releases for April!! The fun starts at 8am MST and goes through 5:00 pm MST!

Check these out! I got a custom order from a nice lady on my Etsy store. She wanted 2 cards for some co-workers that had surgery... 1 Baby card for her new neice and a card for a co-workers 10th anniversary with the company. This is what I came up with...
For the card above... It's the one for her co-worker who's been with the the company for 10 years. She told me she wanted something to do with the Academy Awards. I think this is the hardest thing I've ever had to do!! I know NOTHING about the awards. Ok, I occasionally watch Ms. America but that's it. lol. So i googled the Academy Awards and found the little picture in the middle of the card. and I looked through the things that popped up on google and I looked at all the pics of the celeb's in all their poofy dresses and it just clicked! Turned out better than I thought. :)

I'll have more cards for you tomorrow!! As we embark on the new releases for QKD!

Shopping Trip!

It's been just over a year since I posted a shopping trip of mine.. So.. here's one for yah..
We left about 7 hours ago and this is what I came home with... 5 stores later... I have almost 100 yards of different ribbons! :) To add to my collection of.. oh... close to 2000 yards in my studio already... I's say I did good today! :) That's not all I got! But at the moment my mind is racing so fast I can't remember what I got! :) all I know is I have RIBBON coming out my ears! I've even actaully already sorted and bagged it all ready to hang on my home made clip it up thingy. See...
They are sorted by color.. Green, yellow, red, pink, purple, brown, blue, teal and so on.. I think I have OCD but the jury is still out on that one! I just downloaded the pics from me camera that I took a couple weeks ago when my little nephew (the love of my life) came to visit us... Here's one that I just had to share..
Do you know what he was about to do??? as I snapped the picture I told him he'd get clobbered if that little finger popped up at me! LOL I sure miss him like crazy. I wish he didn't live so far from me. I hate driving in traffic so I really don't get to see him because he's south of Salt Lake and I'm North.. :( But I do enjoy my time with him when he comes. :) I'm sorry I dont have anything fun to share today that I've made. Maybe tonight.. :)
