Queen Kat Designs Stamp Company & Blog Candy!!


I am so glad that you are here!

Didn't you just love Kapree's blog, your last stop before mind on the QKD blog hop?  Her blog is designed so impressively, I just loved visiting it.

The Queen Kat Designs Stamp Company (QKD) challenged me to do a fall themed hand stamped card.  I did a fun little play on words and did a motivational card with the quote:

"Turn your face to the sun and the shadows FALL behind you."

I added a few more fall themed elements to the card with a shedding tree stamp, and handstamped a leaf from my yard on paper to create the leaf in the background.  All these are surrounded by beautiful shiny copper!  My absolute favorite crafting color.  I used a copper leafing pen to shade some Tim Holtz Idea-ology embellishments in more of a copper color.  Lastly, some vintage lace trims the page at the bottom for just a little charm.

This motivational card goes perfectly with my current series of posts in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  I have been posting some pictures of gift projects that I have been making for breast cancer patients and survivors.  I'll have to send this card out to someone special that I know who is affected by this horrible disease.  Hopefully it will cheer her up.
