Queen Kat Monday Hop - Introducing Sadie

So happy that you're Hoppin' with us today - welcome :o)  If you didn't arrive here from Lara's blog, you maybe want to start back at the beginning on the QKD Blog and just follow all the links, so you don't miss any of the awesome DT creations along the way.

All the Team for the Monday Hop are working with another great new sketch this week, plus newly released stamps - check them all out as they are available in the Store right now.

For today's project I'm introducing the fabulous 'Sadie's Victory' - another of the April new release stamps from QKD, designed by Maigan Lynn and I just love her! 

As soon as I saw her I was inspired to use some of the darker, more atmospheric papers I have in my stash.  I love these luscious turquoise and purple shades in the papers and coloured Sadie to match them.

I have been working with lots of bright springlike colours and pastel shades recently, it was soooo..... nice to create with a whole new palette for this project. 

My projects are often quite elaborate and highly embellished, but I felt that Sadie needed 'Star Billing' and so I kept the design quite simple.

I do hope you're having fun and being inspired during today's Hop, we are so pleased that you have joined us today.  I'm now sending you on your way to Kimme's Blog next to see her awesome creation - I wonder what fabulous new release QKD stamps she has used for her project this week.

Don't forget the rest of the DT will be doing their Tuesday Hopping tomorrow, using all of their new release stamps and a different sketch - just start again at the QKD Blog and follow the links.  The QKD Store is always open so why not check out all the new releases, 'old favourites' and bargain items when you finish the Hop - bet you'll find 'a little something' jumping into your shopping cart while you're there!
