A Gem of a Challenge - gingham or checks

Happy Saturday everyone :o)

I'm here with my DT card for A Gem of a Challenge - it was my turn to pick the theme and I chose 'gingham or checks'... luckily for me I already had a card made using checked paper, as our printer decided to stop working and I couldn't print any of the stuff I needed.  Hubby fiddled with it for days and was on the verge of ordering a new one, and then decided it could be something interfering with the wi-fi... switched his headphones off and hey presto, the printer now works again lol!


Items Used
Digi stamp - Josh on Bike - Pink Gem Designs
(I used the pre-coloured version, but coloured the bike red)
Papers - Doodlebug
Stampin' Up Framelits die
Memory Box Riviera Corner die - MCH

Well I think I've made about 30 Valentine's cards so far... and still more to go!... oh, and I haven't actually made one for hubby yet.  I'm going to have a little break and catch up with some commenting now though - back to the craft room this evening.  Hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far :o)
