I'm a Gem - A Pink Gem!!!

Good morning. 
Hope you are all keeping well.
Also hope you're not getting bored of all my DT shares this week :o)
As promised I'm back again today with news of another new DT post and I'm thrilled to have been picked to join 


I feel so lucky to be on so many wonderful DT's and I'm really looking forward to playing with Janet's adorable images.

This week it's Team Gem's turn to share some inspiration with you and the uber talented Donna has picked the theme 

HOLIDAYS

I thought it would be a great opportunity to get a head start on some Christmas makes:



Here's what I did:
Card base - die cut using smallest of Grand Nesties Large Scalloped Circle 
Then using smallest of Grand Nesties plain Circle I die cut another piece of white linen cardstock and embossed it using M-Bossablilities 'Whimsy' and lightly inked with Faded Jeans Distress Ink
I also die cut Spellbinders Snowflake Pendant - available here using white linen cardstock and inked with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.
Topped with the new Christmas Circle Sentiments Set 2 - available here
A bit of ribbon and some silver fibres with a snowflake charm to finish off.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of my DT buddies.
Hope you can find sometime to join in the fun with us too - you could be the lucky winner of 2 individual digi images of your choice (subject to availability). And there are sooooo many adorable images to choose from you'll be spoilt for choice :o)

Challenges I would like to enter:
Card Makin' Mamas - Clean & Simple
Digi Haven - Winter/Snow
Dilly Beans - Metal Accents
Fussy and Fancy - Circles
Milk Coffee - Snowflakes
Jen's Digis - Blue, White & Silver
The Perfect Sentiment - Blue, White & Silver
Papertake Weekly - Tie up your Loose Ends (add a bow)

Thanks for popping by today - your visit really means a lot.
Have a wonderful weekend.
I'll be back tomorrow with my celebration candy details.
TTFN
