Totally Gorjuss challenge 12 - a sketch


This week at Totally Gorjuss Net gave us a fab sketch to work with. I had one of those days while I was making my card and I don't really feel like my card is completely finished, never mind! I'm posting really late today because I decided I needed to spend more time playing with Dex - it was his 2nd birthday yesterday but I had such a busy day that I don't feel like he really got much time with me. He probably didn't care, but I wanted to make it up to him today, so I've not spent too much time on the computer.

I've used a Sugar Nellie image that I've had my eye on for ages and finally caved in and bought it lol. I bought a couple of stamps in their sale and this one sneaked into my basket at the same time so I let it stay ;o) I've coloured her with promarkers and then cut the image out. The papers are Doodlebug with DCWV cardstock. I used nestie circles to cut a circle from some of the paper, then mounted it on a nellie snellen circle. Added some rainbow drops, and a butterfly gem and lace from my stash. Sentiment is Papermania.


I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

  5. Oooh, love how bright this card is and what a fun image.

    I was in WH Smiths yesterday and succumbed to a pack of MME Bloom & Grow paper, it was sitting there on the shelf calling to me and I loved the colours and so already I have broken my own paper ban..... I have no willpower LOL. Oh well, may as well buy the new Docrafts Honey and Hugs range, it's got the cutest ikkle piggy :)

    Look at us two, we are the challenge queens :)

    Looks like Morgan has got a great following, he must be so pleased and you too. I must say, I choked when I saw the words his Daddy wrote. All I ever wanted was for my Dad to say he was proud of me and I thought it was lovely. You must both be very proud of him. Bet you'll have to start locking up your best stash soon :)

    Lots of love
