Fabulous Friday with QKR Stampede

Happy Friday, Friends.  I have been extremely busy this past month and it is time for a much needed break.  As some of you know, I participated in a month long Halloween blog hop sponsored by Smeared and Smudged.  It was so much fun and I totally enjoyed it, but man, I'm brain dead from all the Halloween creations. So, our project for QKR Stampede was a much needed relief.

Welcome to  the QKR Stampede and Eureka Stamps Blog Hop.  We are so excited to share with you our handmade gifts that are perfect for any holiday!

You should have arrived from Ardilla's  blog.   If not, then you will want to start at the beginning on the QKR Stampede blog, as you will not want to miss a chance at all the prizes we are given away!

I have made 3 different sets of cards and a wall hanging for my projects.

The first set uses the digi Christmas pig and coordinating sentiment:

I did a little something different with these card sets. I didn't use any patterned paper.  I used embossing folders for the backgrounds.  This one uses Tim Holtz December Calendar.  I also didn't use traditional Christmas colors.

Set #2 uses the digi, Away in the Manger and the sentiment, Jesus is the Reason:

This set uses Cuttlebug's AllegroEF and yellow and brown card stock.

The third set uses the digi, Santa's List and the sentiment, Name Ain't There:

This set is a bit more traditional in color and uses Tim Holtz Christmas Words EF.

Each set of cards has it's own gift box.

My final project is a wall hanging that I made for our wall beside our Christmas tree this year.  I used mason jar rings that I painted red and green, and three images from QKR Stampede: Christmas Cactus,  Christmas Snowman and Cowboy Christmas Tree.  I used some ribbons and glitter snowflakes from my stash.

Don't forget to leave comments along the way as there will be a prize from every blog along the hop. Each person along hop will be picking a winner from their blog.

These winners will each win a 2 digital image of their choice.

The Grand Prize winner of the hop will be chosen from the very last stop, which is QKR Stampede Stamps Blog.

This winner will receive 5 digital stamps of their choice from the QKR Stampede store.

The hop will run for 1 week and end on Thursday November 7th 6PM EST, and the lucky winners will be announced on the QKR Stampede  blog on Saturday Nov 9th.

Your next stop is Karal's blog!  Go on over and see what she has created for you.

Below is a complete list of the hop in case you get lost along the way
