New Beginnings

Did you all enjoy our fun Blog Hop & 100th Challenge?

Are you all back to normal after the holidays & ready for another challenge?

This weeks challenge is New Beginnings and we hope you'll join us.

It can be any new beginning. A new job, new home, new baby, new start in life the possibilities are endless.

This week we are sponsored by

Pink Gem Designs

who is offering the winner a choice of 4 digis images from her website.

Pink Gem Designs is based in Stourport-on-Severn, Worcester in the UK and began trading in November 2008 to design and sell cute and whimsical craft stamps manufactured in clear polymer
All the stamps shown on the site have been manufactured from original images drawn by Janet Roberts who is the Sole Proprietor of Pink Gem Designs.

I am absolutely thrilled that Janet agreed to sponsor our challenge this week! Janet & I first 'met' on a craft chat forum about 6 years ago and discovered that we are both from the same part of the country (although Janet has sinced moved). Janet is a very talented crafter & a lovely lady & I am so pleased that her stamp business is doing so well. Please pop across and have a look at the lovely stamps & digis she has to offer.

Some of the DT have used digi images from Pink Gem Designs.
