2 Challenges and a swap

Evening stampers,

I'm am so glad that weekend is over, i had a huge weekend.
Starting with Friday night, we had an International night for our Venture group, now that was an interesting night, topped of with a late night trying to get some things done.
Saturday was combined with work, kids sport and personal commitments.
 i went to my first ever competitive live football game, 

The Waikato chiefs took on Queensland Reds, and sorry to say my home team lost, but a good game anyway A late dinner afterwards.............. yet another late night.
Sunday was an early start, we had our annual Cub/Kea/Scout and Venture fundraiser, we get to do the Fielday's clean up (woohoo, not!), Then after that another Venture event, this time a Road safety and Vehicle maintenance down at our yard.
Boy oh boy see what i mean.

Anyway on to crafting.
The card i have to share today was done for my new friend to friend International swap, i have combined two different challenges, 
They are from
A sketch challenge

Along with the card for the swap we had to do a 3-D gift, so here is what i did.

  5. Hi Sharna! Wow! I wonder how you managed to do any stamping in the middle of all that activity??? Phew! I was already tired ... but now I am exhausted ... just thinking about it. This is simply gorgeous. How I wish I had the time to do this challenge! Perhaps ... hhhhmmm ... or maybe not! (With a few more hiccups in my life ... I think maybe not!) But ... I am loving your sample! Gorgeous colours ... and I do sooooo love that stamp set! Hugs xxaxx
