It is the 1st Anniversary over at A Gem Of A Challenge and we are celebrating with a Blog Hop!
As it is the challenges birthday we thought we'd have fun with our blog hop and so along the way you must find the Birthstone of all our team members!
You should have to come to me from Sharon, if you didn't then please go back to the start at A Gem Of A Challenge and start hopping along so you don't miss any of the chances to win!
Remember you need to gather the name of the Birthstone of all the Design Team Members to be in with a chance of winning the Grand Prize!
After looking at my card and commenting be sure to hop over to Caroline to carry along with the fun!
Now my birthstone, I could make it easy and tell you but first I'll give a few clues:
My birthday is in November
In it's purest form it is colorless but....
It is sometimes Blue....... but can be other colors too.
The Orange version is the state gemstone of Utah and the Blue version the state gemstone of Texas (luckily I live there as I have one on my finger!)
But making it even more eerie is that the one on my finger is called a "London" ***** (see it has 5 letters) and I'm English and London is the capital city of England!
