Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer

Good evening

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.  I have had a busy week as I worked Monday and Tuesday and have been trying to keep the children entertained the rest of the week.  I did, however, find a little time to craft and made this card using the sketch at A Gem of a Challenge and the optional extra is to decorate the inside.  In fact I always decorate the inside of my cards but only photograph the front of the card but as this was part of the challenge I have also photographed the inside.

Things are a little different this month at A Gem of a Challenge because it's Mandy's birthday and she has decided to give a few extra prizes ....2 Pink Gem Designs stamps for Mandy's favourite entry using a PGD image and 2 Pink Gem Designs stamps for Mandy's favourite without a PGD image.  There will still be the Top 5 chosen by the DT and the random winner will be chosen from all entries with a Pink Gem Designs image and they will win 2 PGD stamps of their choice (subject to availability).  So there are lots of chances to win this month so it is worth entering even if you don't use a PGD image!
