BLOGGERS CHALLENGE & QKR STAMPEDE BLOG HOP

Ahhhh Friday - it is a BEAUTIFUL thing, isn't it? Since we have been out of town we had a short week anyways, but I personally LOVE the weekends and time with my man!

Today is BLOGGERS CHALLENGE DAY AND the NEW QKR Stampede Stamp company RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY! We are so excited to be holding their FIRST BLOG HOP and glad you have come to join in our celebration!

Todays Blogger Challenge is to ALTER IT! So I had these tins remaining from a project a few years ago, so I started playing around with one. My daughter saw this and asked if I would make her one too - so hers is the turquoise and purple one. I made another project at the QKR Stampede Blog and you can see that HERE. (Where the Blog Hop starts!)

If you are arriving here from CAROL's Blog then you are in the RIGHT SPOT! Wasn't Carol's project FABULOUS? I loved the embossing she put on her card! If you didn't arrive here from Carol's blog, you don't want to miss what our designers have in store for you! The QKR Stampede Blog Hop starts at www.qkrstampede.blogspot.com.

Now without further adieu here is some information about my project...

Stamps: BOUQUET from QKR Stampede
Cardstock: Co'ordinations, Black, Basic Grey Origins
