We have a new challenge theme starting today,  thanks so much for your stunning takes on the last challenge and we have some BIG news!...

Before we get to the challenge news and winners, we are super thrilled to announce that you can now purchase Pink Gems Designs via the Polkadoodles digi store and we're really thrilled about it because it means we can spread the word even wider about Janet's lovely images! 


The Pink Gem website is now closed permanently but you can buy your favourite digis either through Polkadoodles or Etsy (link is in the sidebar) for the forseeable future so now you have even more great choices!


In addition, this blog is now sponsored via Polkadoodles so our winners prizes will be slightly different, just check the winners post for prize details each week.

We have changed things around slightly to make it easier for everyone to enter, and we have a whole new creative design team bringing you all this gorgeous inspiration...
