Royal Kat Wednesday!

Today is Royal Kat Wednesday over at the Queen Kat Designs Blog! Here is today's fun challenge sketch! I am not an official DT member for QKD until February and unfortunately I didn't get my new goodies to play with yet, but I still wanted to play along. I used some stickers instead of a stamped design, though. I didn't want to use another company's stamps!

The patterned paper is by Little Yellow Bicycle. I simply folded the paper in half and then cut that in half on my trimmer. I added some Cosmo Cricket CS Stickers and some heart 3-D stickers by Cloud 9 Design. To finish it off I added some yummy pink ribbon, 2 green ball pins and 3 mini heart brads.

Queen Kat Designs is also having a huge blowout Sale! All stamps are 45% off!! Yes, I said 45% off! There is also a sale on past kits, clearance items and more!! Make sure you check it out HERE!

****And don't forget to leave a comment on THIS POST for my Birthday Blog Candy! You have until this Sunday night, the 18th!*****

And lastly, a big Thank you to Ashley, my fellow soon-to-be DT Member over at QKD! She gave me this Blog Award! Thanks again Ashley! You are too sweet!

Hope you have a wonderful night!!

Hugs, Melissa
