The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 56

This week is a colour challenge

I actually found this one a bit challenging this week as I had an idea and every which way I looked at it, it was not going to work for me..... so I am saving it for another week.

I had to think quickly as i had a very busy weekend with family coming up to stay with us....
I made a gift card envelope

The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 55

You have hopped on over from the amazing Alisons creation

I have been on a wonderful 3 1/2 month camping holiday over to the Eastern States of Australia and back along the coastline with my lovely family. While on this trip I called into Alisa's town for a visit and was lucky to catch up with her for a cuppa, a tim tam (slurpy ha ha) and a chat. I was fortunate to meet up with a total of 7 Stampin' Up! Demos from all over this country. Sadly I couldn't see everyone.

I AM BACK and straight back into it!!
I have missed doing these challenges but when I had good wifi I did tune in to the weekly hop to check it out.

This week is a sketch challenge

Would you believe that this is the first time that I have been able to play with my pre- order??! Yes it is.
