Totally Gorjuss Challenge

Hi Everyone and a wonderful Saturday to you all... from viewing my Google Reader, it's great to see that we're all having a wonderful crafty day. I noticed that there's a nice sketch over on the Totally Gojuss challenge blog. Go check it out!  Here's my little creation for this week, hope you like it!

Base: Deep mauve coloured Bazzill (have I got the spelling correct now girls? ;)
DP: Lovely mauve and green double side paper from Kaiser Crafts. As per the sketch, I used the back of the DP for the centre panel which I glued lilac spotted ribbon onto.
Image: Goth girl from Gorjuss Girls, coloured with Copics. I love the image but not the skull, so I placed a bling flower to hide it!
Embellishments: Glittered paper flowers from Dazzled. Green pearls in the corner of each card.  A few rhinestones was placed over the card.
Sentiment: Computer generated.

I am feeling so guilty, spent more money on cardstock today (but the sale is still on you see, so what is a girl to do????).  The only darn thing is that the eyes start roving all over the place and before you know it... a little bit of this DP and a little bit of that lovely punch... and those flowers somehow find their way into my shopping basket... then you're at the till and almost collapsing from fright when the total amount is revealed.  But, how on earth can that be!!!  I only came in for the SALE stock ;)  How on earth did I manage to run up such an amount?  Hmmm... I really hope this sounds familiar or else I'm going to feel even worse that I do now! hahaha (not for long though).  Let me know if you have the same problem, ok?  Enough ramblings for now, I'm off to make myself a nice cup of coffee.  Why not join me? 

Thanks for visiting ladies, hope you like my little card for today.  Tons of hugs and laughs... Sharon xx

Hi Sharon thanks for joining us again at TG. I love the colours you've used....maybe that's why my blog name is lilackat! This card is really lovely and I know what you mean about the skull - I usually cover it with a flower too. As for the shopping I sometimes just go on a website for a browse but it never ends there lol!

What a lovely card! Now I love the little skull on this one ;))

Oh I have no problem shopping, apparently I'm a natural according to my husband!

Thanks for playing Gorjuss with us.

Hiya Sharon. You do make me laugh, thats exactly what I do and I swear they have added up wrong, haha. You just have to buy when there is a sal on, dont you.
Anyway, your card is delightful. Fab colours, beautiful image. Lovely papers and those cute flowers.
Happy Crafting my friend, enjoy your new goodies.
Love sandra xx

Hey Sharon...en of dat ik het ook ken! Hum. Verleden weekend wou ik gaan schoppen want had geen papier meer (eigenlijk zit de kast nog vol!!!),omdat ik niet met de auto rij moest mijn man rijden maar die had niet veel zin en vroeg me of ik niet via internet kon bestellen...FOUT FOUT!!! Ik kon niet beslissen en kocht dan maar papier, bloemen, embelisments, ponsen...en dan dacht ik dat het genoeg had tot ik misschien toch nog copicmarkers kon gebruiken en vullingen nodig had...voor ik er erg in had was er een halve maandloon door! Ik schaam me enorm wan ik wil zo graag een cricut...Wat is het gezegde...geld maakt niet gelukkig...! We zullen deze maand alleen boterhammen met choco eten! LOL!
Veel liefs,Celia

Oh Sharon.. I never, never overbuy craft supplies (HA!!). I can't tell you how many times I've done exactly as you... and get home to find I already had that stamp set or punch or something. That's what cracks me up.

Your card is darling.. love the coloring, layout, everything. I'll bet you had your daughter in mind when you made it.

Sending hugs, Peggy
