CCEE1204 Australia Day


Frances is our hostess for the month of January.  Her challenge to the CCEE Stampers this week is....

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. So our challenge is Aussie related … I will give you a few options … use the colors green & gold on your card; create a beach scene (we love our beaches); use Australian Animals; Tongs (you wear on your feet btw) etc.

Well, as probably could be predicted, I went with the beach theme.  I had not inked up this set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, so this was a perfect excuse to do so.

Be sure to see how the rest of the team is helping Frances in celebrating her country's national holiday by visiting the CCEE Stampers Blog.

I'm certainly not going to complain about a beach theme - especially an Australian beach :D. The Irish ones are rarely warm enough to soak up much sun!!

Yes, I KNEW IT...a beach scene. I almost did one but I went simple instead. For sure, I love your card. I'm having so much trouble with Blogger today. Ugh!
