New Challenge Site!!

I have just found a new Australian challenge site through Sarah's blog.  How exciting, a group of Australia and New Zealand Stampin Up Gals have got together and started up a new challenge site: have a looky here .  Even though they are Stampin Up demonstrators and primarily use stampin up products you can use any products to enter their challenges, very exciting.  Anyway I am off to play on their very first challenge.

Here is my contribution to Just Add Ink's first challenge for 2010 - JAI1:

Products used primarily Stampin Up:
card stock : So Saffron, Taken with Teal, Rose Red and Whisper White
stamps:        Circle Circus, Oval All
Ink:               So Saffron, Rose Red, Choc Chip & Ranger Cerulean Azure
Punches:      Large Oval, Scalloped Oval & Martha Stewart -  Edge Arch Lattice
Pearls:          Kaiser
Other:           Choc Chip ribbon

I have a friend who has just had her birthday but is at the moment on tour in Egypt, so this card will be going her way upon her return.

Thanks for looking, will be back shortly with some creations I have made over our summer holiday break.

Have a great day.

Over at Theme Thursday this week the topic is flying.  Here is my contribution.

I have used credit card technique for the background using jo sonya aqua, folkart metallic antique copper.  Stamp is Michelle Ward Clearly Impressed ~ Bird Sanctuary, wording is from Collections and I have used  Shrinkies, German Scrap and JW's wax in copper.

Thanks for dropping bye and looking, I really appreciate all your comments.  Have a wonderful day.
