Button it!! at A Gem of a Challenge

Good Morning to you, my wonderful friends and blogging buddies
Yippee, the weekend at last! We haven't got anything particular planned, but I don't mind, it will be a nice relaxing weekend.

So, as it's Saturday it the start of a new 
our theme this time set by the lovely Donna is

Button it!

The prize for the winner will be.....
2 Individual Digi images of the winners choice from PINK GEM DESIGNS (Subject to Availability).....
There will also be the chance for a GDT spot - see challenge blog for more details


I had great fun playing with some of Pink Gem Designs newest products, Janet has been very busy lately!
The wonderful sewing machine and accessories are from a digi set called Sew Special. You also get a choice of lovely sentiments included in the set.
The papers are also a digital download from Pink Gem called Lemon Drizzle. I'm not sure if you can see on my picture but they print out beautifully to give the effect of textured linen paper.

Digi Papers - Pink Gem Designs Lemon Drizzle
Spellbinders Hexagons
Buttons from stash

If you take a look on the A Gem of A Challenge will see the wonderful creations made by the rest 'The Pinks' Team and see who were the winners of the last challenge.
