A card and a new blog!

Would you like to win some gorgeous Pink Gem Designs stamps?


Please pop across to the brand new Gems of Inspiration from Pink Gem Designs blog for all the details :o)

The new blog will hopefully give you lots of ideas and inspiration using Pink Gem Designs stamps, digi images and papers.

And if you're not already a follower at A Gem of a Challenge, why not pop over there too and join in with our fab fortnightly challenges with great prizes to be won :o)

And here's my card for today, using one of the fab 'Keep Calm' images from Pink Gem Designs...



I've used the colour version of the Keep Calm and Play Golf digi stamp - you get this version, a black text one and a white text version that you can layer over a digi paper, so it would look exactly like mine, but with any background colour you like.

The papers are from the lovely Happy Days pad from Papermania, with Stampin' Up cardstock and striped ribbon.  The 'Dad' sentiment is from a Wellington Bear stamp set and I added some punched circles to finish it off.  This is not for my dad (he died very young - he was just a few years older than I am now), it's for my Auntie to give to her father-in-law.

I'm not sure what we're doing today... Hubby's taken Dex to his mum's for a few hours, and usually we'd be off to my mum's later, but really we should go and get the boys kitted out with uniforms ready for school... Will have to see what hubby wants to do when he gets back!  Hope you're all enjoying your weekend, whatever you're up to :o)
