A New Challenge over at A Gem of A Challenge - Christmas in July

Good morning crafty friends.  My son has now left his Primary School ready to start Seniors in September.  It's the end of an era but an exciting time for him.  I feel a little bit melancholy at the thought he is is growing up so fast :(  

Enough of me waffling on as I am here to let you know about the latest Challenge over at  A Gem of A Challenge and I would love you to come along and join in the fun.

The theme is...


Any image Stamped OR digi image is allowed on your creation

Easy Peasy :)

The prize from Pink Gem Designs is 
2 Individual Digi images OR 2 Card Topper Kits OR one of each 
(no sets or sentiment sets) 
of the winners choice ..

My super sweet image is from Pink Gem Designs and is called Chilly with Bird House.  I have coloured him in with ProMarkers.  My Papers are LOTV and I have die-cut my trees and snowflakes.  The sentiment is computer generated and I have used glitter on my image and sentiment.

  12. Hi Michelle,
    what a very wonderful card, and your design is fantastic.
    Love that super image, and those papers used.
    Yes they do grow up so quick mine are in their 40s and sometimes it seems only like yesterday they were in school, and sometimes it seems like ages too.
    My Grandson in in his 3rd year in September and he managed the change quite well.
    I do hope this is so for your Son too.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
