Something's Brewing . . .

. . . it's the QKR Stampede Autumn/Halloween Blog Hop! Welcome!! You are at your first scheduled stop from the QKR Stampede Blog. If you didn't start from there, please go there now for all the details about the prize being offered and what you have to do to be eligible to win. Go on . . . Go there now . . . I'll wait . . . You're back! That didn't take long!! I have a few projects to share with you tonight. Ready? First up, a Halloween-inspired card:
This card was created with the Trick or Treat (#12306) stamp from QKR Stampede. Isn't that little koala bear--dressed like a mummy--just the cutest?? I hope he gets lots of treats!! The first time I saw him, I knew he was going on my wish list!!  Reminds me so much of the Halloween costumes we made when we were kids--no store-bought costumes then, and I have to say the creativity was fantastic!! Next up,  Halloween treat bags.
The stamps I used for these little treat bags are Parked (#9303), R.I.P. (#12905) and Scarecrow and Jack (#18807) from QKR StampedeThese little cellophane bags are great to fill with a few goodies, and they certainly won't be the same as what anyone else in the neighborhood is handing out to the trick or treaters on Halloween night! I simply filled the bags, wrapped with ribbon (like a belly band) and attached each image. Here is a close-up of each image:


My last project for the Hop is an Autumn-themed card. This card uses the Autumn Friends (#9206) and Without You (#11803) stamps from QKR Stampede.
I thought this ragdoll image was super sweet and, paired with the sentiment, is a fantastic way to let someone know just how special they are to you. I hope you enjoyed viewing these projects as much as I did creating them.  One last thing before you go . . . you can be eligible for a $25 shopping spree at QKR Stampede simply by leaving a comment at each Design Team Member's Blog and on the QKR Stampede Blog.
