A Gem of a Challenge #64...Holidays

Morning you lovely lot, from a very sunny Hertfordshire. I'm pleased to report that we didn't get even a smidging of the threatened snow fall last night which is just as well as I had my car cleaned yesterday and it's as clean and sparkly as a new pin.

It is with some sadness I am posting my last card as a member of the A Gem of a Challenge design team. It's been amazing working with Janet's digis but I just feel the time is right to move on and although I'll miss working with the girls, as they are a lovely lot, but at least I can still stalk their blogs!

I don't think I was popular with the girls with the theme I chose this week... HOLIDAYS! Everyone struggled with this one but to clarify it can be, Summer Holidays, Winter Holidays (Christmas), Easter Holidays or indeed any other holidays you can think of. I chose to run with an Easter Holiday theme and you'll just need to make sure you tell us in your own post what Holiday theme you have followed with your project.

I'm entering my card in to the following challenge...
