Easter Chicks.... on the Pink Gem Designs website.

Aren't they cute for your Easter makes?

Hopefully back later in the week with some makes to show you. Spent the week so far laid up with a nasty cough & cold thanks to my lovely little Son for bringing his germs home lol! Thankfully he was well enough to go back to school today and I'm now feeling much better too apart from feeling tired.  Hope you are all well?

A Gem Of A Challenge 42 ~ Jackie's Sketch...

Hi all! Oh dear should have written up this post last night ready to schedule, but ended up falling asleep on the sofa with my little man who is poorly at the mo. I had a call to pick him up from school early yesterday. He has a cough and raging temperature. Stupid coughs & colds!

So lets get on with it! A new challenge is under way at A Gem Of A Challenge and Jackie has a fab sketch for you to follow;

I used the very fab Patriotic Teddy digi stamp from Pink Gem Designs. Between me & you I used the pre coloured version you get as an added bonus alongside the black outline files. A great idea if you're short on time!

I also used;
Papermaina Portobello Road papers & ribbons,
Bazzill Kraft,
Card Candi,
Tim Holtz Kraft Resist Alphabets,
Memento Inks,
Nesties (pink Gem Designs),
Martha Stewart Zig Zag Punch,

Look forward to seeing what you make. Plenty more DT inspiration over on the challenge blog as always!

Thanks so much for popping by I really appreciate it. Family life seems to be very hectic for me at the moment, and I just don't have time to create as much and blog hop like I used to. So I truly appreciate you sticking with me. I'm hoping things with improve soon. Have a lovely day.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be asked to make some cards for Creative Cardmaking Magazine issue 39, on behalf of Pink Gem Designs. The mag includes over £7 worth of Pink Gem Designs freebies; papers, toppers & die cuts.

Just A Quickie.. let you know about Lisa's candy. A £15 LOTV voucher, how fab! But you'll have to be very ends today! 

Tried to post this in my sidebar but blogger won't let me post any more pics there. It tell's me I've 'exceeded my upload limit'. When I click on the link for advice, it take's me to a page where I have to PAY to get more storage space! Surely that can't be right??  I know that you do have a limited amount of storage that will eventually run out.....but can't see how mine is all used up. I hardly have time to post half the time, and I know others bloggers who post everyday. Also, why am I still able to upload photo's into my blog posts then? The pictures in the sidebar are far smaller. Any advice appreciated thanks.

A Gem Of A Challenge & CES Challenges...

  Hello lovely bloggers. Missed you lots while I've been AWOL. My Mum was in hospital as you know, and was still unwell once back at home. So everything else has had to take a back burner. This week I've been busy catching up around the house, and so hopefully can now get back into blogging/crafting again.

Without further ado, here's my DT card for A GEM OF A CHALLENGE, where Katie has chosen our theme of

'Perfect Pastels'

Today I 'cheated' and used a pre coloured image from Pink Gem Designs. When you buy digis from PGD you always get a pre coloured version as well as the black outline files, handy for those quick makes. This one is called 'Flower Power Emma'.

I also used these gorgeous brand new digi papers ' Distressed Hearts'  just launched on the website. I think these will be a firm fave of mine!

This is also my DT card for CES CHALLENGES, where our theme is

'Flower Frenzy'

From Crafty Emma's Store I used;
Card Blank, 
Dew Drops, 
Card Candi,

Other bits I've used today are;
Memory Box Dies,
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch,
Star Dust Stickles,
White Gel Pen ( for the writing on the Candi),
Blue ink pad.

Please check out the other DT makes and join us if you can.
Thanks so much for popping by!
