My first ever ESAD Blog-hop

Good Morning everyone!

This is my first ever blog hop so I truly hope I have done it all correctly and I hope you’re ready for it! Better go grab yourself a cuppa as you’ll be hopping for a while! If you are in the middle of the hop, you will have come from Rachel Jackson's blog but don't worry, there's links to make a full circle if you are starting on mine.

What is ESAD you say?

ESAD stands for Extra Special Australian (and New Zealand) Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!

We so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends and wonderful blog visitors but we share our love for what we do with each other as Demonstrators. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know how and cyberstamps and we are always there to help and support each other when its needed.

So if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

We are again offering Blog Candy for our Blog Hop. What you need to do is complete the blog hop until you get back to me. Once you've visited and commented on every blog then you will need to email Sharlene at who will then put your name into the draw for the blog candy. There will be one winner from New Zealand and one winner from Australia. Please note, Stampin' Up! Demonstrators are not eligible to win the Blog Candy.

So without further suspense, here is my creation, a letter holder and matching card as a gift set:

This is the set together:

The letter holder from the front

On the inside

A close up of 1 of the inside panels

The matching card

And finally a close up of the bird

Project Recipe:

NEW Rich Razzleberry Polka-dot Ribbon
NEW Extra-Large Two-Step Bird Punch (My favourite punch!)

Well, that's it from me today, please continue on the blog hop by going to visit Ros Davidson's blog and keep hopping until you come back to me!
