My blog has been taken over today, please leave a comment


So today my blog has been taken over by 9 year old Grace, my friend Lynsey's daughter and her she is hard at work creating her card. The reason for this is that at A Gem of a Challenge we have a very special challenge for children. The theme is Summer holidays and instead of the DT creating inspiration cards we have some inspiration from children for you.

This is the card Grace made using bee with watering can.


She didn't take the easy option of using a precoloured image but coloured the image herself. If you have a little one who loves to create then we would love to see their entries in our challenge. 

Challenge is open to Children up to age of 16yrs.  3 prizes 
up to 6yrs.... 6 + to 10yrs... 10+ to 16yrs...
Entrants can use ANY Stamped OR digi image.
CARDS Only to be entered. 
 Theme is SUMMER HOLIDAY/VACATION
Anything to do with Enjoying the summer holidays/break .

Now I get far more visitors than comments on my posts which is fine, I am grateful for both but today please leave a comment for Grace as she will be hopping over to see what people have to say about her card.
