Hello Everyone,

Just to let you know that Kay is back on Hochanda this weekend with a brand new One Day Special (ODS) and just in case you have forgotten or you were not aware, Hochanda is no longer airing on Freeview Channel 39. Don't worry though; come 1st October it will be reappearing at it's new home on Channel 85. In the meantime you can catch everything online at it's website HERE, on Sky 663 and FreeSat 817.

We don't want you to miss out on the shows or be disappointed if you can't tune in on Saturday at 8pm and throughout the day on Sunday


So to watch the IndigoBlu shows this weekend, you can view them on Hochanda's website, Sky 663 and FreeSat 817.

(And don't forget you can always watch the shows on catch-up online for two weeks).

Here are a few sneak peeks of what's coming up in Kay's shows.




Happy Crafting! xx

September Challenge - Autumn Wildlife

Good morning all,

Today we have a new challenge for you, it's our September challenge and it's 'Autumn Wildlife'.  Any IndigoBlu animal, bird, butterfly stamp etc will do, we'd just like to see your take on this theme.  If you don't have any of those stamps, you can always stamp your Indigoblu pattern's or backgrounds and die-cut them into animal or butterfly shapes!  Think outside the box..

So first we need to congratulate our Random Winner from August's challenge - All things Bright and Beautiful.
Congratulations Amanda, we will be in touch shortly to arrange your prize.

Our Top 3 this month, as chosen by the DT, and who get a Guest Designer spot in our Challenge reminder post are:

1. Carolyn's Creations
2. Leanne C Harris
3. Pat Moore

Congratulations to you all, we will be in touch shortly.

Now for the inspiration from our very own DT, and our fab winner from August, Sheila, who has created this beautiful piece for us:


Sheila had this to say:
It was amazing to win the IndigoBlu blog challange and been able to add to my IndigoBlu stash.  I used the country house for my design card as it was one of my prize choices it's a stamp that's for all seasons.

Sheila doesn't have a blog, but does log in to the IB blog every day, and is a loyal IndigoBlu fan, so please leave her lots of love in your comments below, I know she will see them and appreciate them all.

And here are our brilliant DT's pieces, just love these!  And there is a very sneaky peek of a new stamp here - can you tell which one it is?
