Keep Calm - Pink Gem Designs DT card

Morning everyone :o)  It's my turn to post on the Gems of Inspiration blog today, and as I needed a male 50th card, I've used one of the fab Keep Calm digi stamps... I love these, and I get lots of orders for them - more than I show here, because some ask for the exact same card again and there's not much point showing you them lol.  I've already been asked for another one exactly the same as this one...

Items Used
Scalloped card blank - Craftwork Cards
Digi stamp - Keep Calm and Drink Beer - Pink Gem Designs
Papers - Happy Days - Papermania
'50' sentiment - Birthday Numbers stamp set - Pink Gem Designs
'Birthday Wishes' sentiment - Stampin' Up
Memory Box Corner Bow die - MCH
MeiFlower Light Blue gems - MCH

It's Dex's first full day at school today, as he was just doing mornings last week... hopefully he'll be ok!  And I'm hoping to get all my crafty stuff done during the week while both boys are at school, so the weekends can be all about them :o)  Too many weekends lately, have ended up with me shut off in the craft room while hubby and the boys are downstairs or at the park... I need to change that!

Right, enough of my rambling, there's cards to be made!  Hope you have a lovely day :o)
