CCEE Stampers-Australia

I want to welcome to the CCEE Stampers four new members, Brenda O'rear, Lois Bak,
Sabrina Friel and Kathy Bradley.

So now onto our challenge. Frances has another challenge for us this week. Most of you probably know that Frances lives in Australia! Well it’s a special day for all Aussies today as it is Australia Day! It is on this day in 1788 that the First Fleet arrived at Sydney Cove. This day is special to them, just like the 4th of July is special to those of us who live in the USA!

The challenge is Aussie related today. Here are a few options that Frances has given us … use the colors green and gold on your card; create a beach scene (we love our beaches); use Australian Animals; Thongs (you wear on your feet btw) or anything else that you think would relate to Australia!.

I chose an owl, by Hampton Art, Frances loves owls and there are owls in Australia. The paper is by K & Company, the ribbon was off of my Christmas present this year and I just happened to come across it when I was putting my card together, that worked out well. I used a three different spellbinders sets and sponged the clouds with bashful blue ink.

We would love for you to join us for the challenge. You can upload your card to CCEE Stampers blog.
