Totally Gorjuss (GDT) - No Patterned Paper

Happy Saturday everyone... and welcome to yet another challenge at Totally Gorjuss.  Wasn't last week's challenge fun?  It really had me stumped, but you all rose to the challenge beautifully... so many different takes on the Fluffy challenge... well done!!!  You girls ROCK!!  So many entries!

What do we have for you this week... No Patterned Paper... wait until you start with this one, it was so strange... my hand kept reaching for the very paper we're NOT supposed to use...LOL !!!  So... it's all plain cardstock this week... I hope my little creation will inspire you to take part.  Our sponsor is Simon Says Stamps... now that should be incentive enough for you.

See what I mean?  Not one piece of patterned paper in sight... looked odd for me initially, but I got used to it after a while.  The image is our gorgeous little Tilda, kindly stamped for me by a very dear friend in the UK.  I thought I'd go for an Easter card this time, as I have yet to make one.  I adore this little image, she is such a cutie pie.

The gorgeous lace was a gift from another friend in Pretoria. Thanks so much Amelia, this was the last piece in that colour that I had over.  Amelia and I have been using this rationally, as she cannot get it in this colour anymore... boohoo!  We do have it in chocolate and pink though...


The pearls, ribbon and flower are from my stash. My Tilda was coloured with Copics and I used lovely pearlised chalk around the image, purchased from 7 Kids College Fund

Challenge: 7 Kids College Fund (Easter Card)

Well, that's it for this week... I hope you'll be playing along with us again, as I can't wait to see your stunning creations.  Take care, hugs Sharon x

Just sharing...

For all we William and Catherine junkies in SA , especially for those of us who do NOT have DSTV...   SABC3 will be televising the wedding on the 29th April, with highlights on the 30th April.  Read all about it here.  How cool is that? (Our home phone will be on voicemail over both days, so DON'T call unless it's an absolute emergency...hahahaha).
