Inspiration - Shelley Stewart

After a lazy day in bed, I admit it's almost 3pm and I'm still in my PJs but the fact that within 24 hours I spent 20 of them at work I'm allowed to be a slob for a day - I guess by now there's no point getting dressed. Anyway I thought I'd have a quick blog hop and was wowed by the very first one I happened to 'hop' onto.

Shelley has made this gorgeous card, and from the looks of the watercolouring you'd have no idea this was her only her third attempt.
To see more on Shelley's wonderful creations you can visit Shelley's blog Stampin-Shellz.

Raspberry Suite colour challenge #10

Hi Guys, Lisa G here.
I have really been getting into Dawn McVey's blog lately, she has such classy taste and a superb eye for design and colour, So in line with the "challenge" theme, I thought I would post her very popular colour challenge.
I have been getting so tired of not being creative, I LOVE making cards and scrapbooking, papercrafts in general and I LOVE Stampin' Up! so very much.
So.... I have made myself a resolution:
1) to USE all my scrumptious SU! products, and not be left with packs and packs of paper, brads and rolls and rolls of ribbon like I did this year when the catalogue/IBC rolled over
2) to participate in at least 1 challenge that the NZSUblog has put up on the website, and I figured if I publicise this with you, the fellow blogger, I might actually DO some crafting!
So, let's see if this works...I'll show you mine if you show me yours :-)
