It's Australia Day in the Land Downunder and what better way to celebrate than bring you some NEW Australian themed Digi Stamps and offer you some inspiration with a quick blog hop!!
To celebrate, Zoe's been teaching us the language and local customs. You'll see the language isn't very difficult to pick up : ) Here's a little history for you from Zoe: "What is Australia Day? Well in short, it's the day that the first fleet of convicts arrived in Sydney Australia (yup we are a bunch of convicts!! haha) but today we celebrate what's great about Australia with our family and friends and it usually involves a few snags on the barbie (BBQ)!"
I never need an excuse to party, so let's celebrate amongst friends from around the world and share some crafting inspiration with an Aussie Outback theme!
If you're already on the hop then you should have arrived from Jenn otherwise if you want to hop from the start head on over to say G'Day to AJ.
I got to play with these super-cute possums (they don't look like the ones we have here in the southern US). I love the mama and baby together and they just screamed Valentine card for my mom. Well, they didn't actually scream :-) I colored them with Copics on Make It Colour paper. I had a really good time practicing the fur (check out who colored the sample on the MIC site - it still astounds me that I get to color with these amazing ladies!)
Now I guess you're looking for the next mate to hop on over to??
Well before you do... Make sure you comment below for your chance to win an Australian Souvenir. Each of us will be selecting someone from our comments to receive a little Aussie Souvenir from Zoe!
PLUS Zoe is offering 20% OFF store wide at Makeitcrafty.com until the 28th January! Hurry on over (when you get through the hop of course!) to grab some bargains!!
OK OK... It's time to head on over to see my mate, Maria.
Thanks for celebrating with us!! Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi Oi Oi!!!
I'd like to enter this card in the Top Tip Tuesday #68 - sketch.
