Bring on the Sunshine!!!

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Saturday.
I hope you are all well and have some time to relax over the weekend.
We have a busy couple of days with cricket matches so fingers crossed for some dry weather.


Today is the start of a new A Gem of a Challenge

We are trying really hard to encourage some good weather with a fabulous theme
Bring on the Sunshine !!

The prize for the winner will be.....
2 Individual Digi images
(NO SETS, PERSONALISED WATERMARK'S OR SENTIMENT SETS) 
of the winners choice from PINK GEM DESIGNS.....


It was nice to pull out some sunny paper and make a cheerful card. The cute Cartwheel Jodie was a joy to colour and I have used one of my favourite digi sentiments also from Pink Gem available here.


Items used :
Digi Stamp - Pink Gem Designs ~ Cartwheel Jodie coloured with Promarkers
Digi Sentiment - Pink Gem Designs ~ Sunshine and Smiles 
Papers - Doodlebug Design ( sorry don't know the name it was loose in my box)
Cheery Lynn Sweet William Die
Memory Box Meadow Leaf  Die
Nellie Snellen Multi Frame Die Star 
Distress Ink - tumbled glass (for sky)
Button from Stash

Over at  A Gem of a Challenge you will be able to see the wonderful sunny creations by the rest of this week's design team and also see who were the winners of the last challenge


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Charisma Cardz - Here comes summer!
Crafty Sentiments  - Buttons ( I have only used one - hope that is okay?)
I ♥ Promarkers - Anything Goes
Whimsy Stamps - Anything Goes


Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog today. I really appreciate it and love read any comments you may wish to make
Just to let you know that I will not be around so much next week as I hope to spend some time with my children. I will be catching up with my commenting in the evenings though as I don't want to miss what you have all been up to!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend
Bye for now
hugs

Donna Ellis said...

Sunny and Cheery is right, Sue! I'm sorry you don't have much sunshine there. Last night I went swimming after 7PM and the sun had heated the pool to 93F! It felt great on my sore muscles. Wouldn't it be great doing the cartwheels again? I miss doing things like that. Love those darling little butterflies in the background and the pretty grass which is the same color as the green in your DP. Darling card! hugs, de

My smile is as big as that gorgeous sunshine, Sue! This is one of my favorite Pink Gem images and you've brought her to life so perfectly. The papers are stunning, the dies are gorgeous, and I love the sentiment you nestled into the sunshine. Don't you love how so many star dies make lovely suns? :o) I am certain this has delivered sunbeams of joy to every person who has viewed it. :o) Beautifully done, my friend! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
