A Monthly Challenge at QKR Stampede

     I know, change is not something most of us would choose first thing on a Monday morning, but the usual weekly challenge at QKR Stampede is now a monthly challenge for the summer!  We haven't decided whether it will stay monthly beyond that point but for the summer months you'll have plenty of time to enter each challenge.  This one will end on June 30 and our next one will begin on July 1.  :-D

     I'm going to share two cards with you today, one very much a salute to summer, and the other I sent to a friend whose son just made the collegiate wrestling team, in the "Lightweight" category.

     For my first card, I used a fun image called "Snacking Mouse," and I've been chowing down on watermelon for the last week as we suffered through the earliest heat wave (3 or more days in a row of temps in excess of 100 degrees F) we've had in many years.

Colored with ProMarkers
All cuts made with QuicKutz dies
Sentiment printed and die cut
Polka dot paper from DCWV
Hand tied, polka dot bow



     My second card uses an image called "Weighing."

Colored with ProMakers and gel pens
Cut with dies from MFT Die-namics
Image inlaid into frame
Paper from Authentic
Sentiment & mat cut with Avery Elle dies

     This is my last post for today so if you missed the one for either 2 Crafty Critter Crazies or the one for Jan's Digi Stamps, just scroll down - you'll find them.  :-D  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

BOTH are as cute and fun as can be. Love the images you used on them too.
That's just way too hot this early in the season. Hope you get some cooler weather soon.

These are brilliant cards and love the images. We have had a mini heat wave for the UK over the past 5 days. We are hoping we actually get a summer this year with the weather. Take care and stay safe.

Cute cards, Connie. I am not sure the bear in the second one would manage the "lightweight" category lol
