My CHF Fun

I was absolutely delighted to be a part of the fun over at CHF yesterday. As you know, Lisa Strahl celebrated her 30th b-day in conjunction with the release of her 16 new AMAZING backgrounders. It was great getting to know new faces, chatting and of course playing along. If you had the chance to participate, a BIG thanks goes out to you! My absolute favourite part was seeing all the beautiful designs in the gallery--I am still going through them all--you did a FABULOUS job.

I had the pleasure of hosting the very first challenge of the day--a colour challenge using some of my fav colours from my Prism cardstock: butter cream (vanilla), nautical blue light (light blue) and tawny medium (light brown)

I provided 3 examples for my challenge with tips included and all I can say is I was WOWed by the submissions. Make sure you take a peak too and not only will you see fabulous challenge submissions but you can also look at the close up photos from this collection as I have posted each card individually in my photo gallery.

Yesterday was a jam packed day from the CHF birthday bash to the 3 inches of SNOW (the kids LOVED it) as well as setting up the Christmas tree to making a special family dinner. I certainly didn't get as much stamping done as I wanted too but I did spend a wonderful day with my family including my mum too.

Have a great day.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!
