Hello dear friends... It is a beautiful day in Cape Town this morning. I believe it's going to be a very warm day, but it's still nice and fresh right now (07:23).
I have some good news that I've been wanting to share with you... I've been invited to join the wonderful team on the Totally Gorjuss Challenge Blog as a Guest Gorjusette for a 6-monthterm and naturally... I accepted... woohooo!!! I can't tell you how thrilled I am.
As my regular followers will know, I just love my girly cards and I now have the opportunity to showcase all the lovely girly stamps that I have in my stash, amongst them some of my very first Gorjuss Girls stamps, which you can purchase from Funky Kits. I'll be showcasing them later on.
The challenge this week over at the Totally Gorjuss challenge blog is for you to put something Fluffy on your creation. I don't have any fluffy bits and pieces amongst my stash, but I'm sure this little birdie on this gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamp qualifies as something Fluffy...LOL. She's from the Home Grown collection at Funky Kits, called Country Style.
There was no name on the blue spotted paper, so I can unfortunately not share that with you. The heart designer paper is from my W&M collection of papers. The image was coloured using Copics. I stamped her onto Opale Wove White Shimmer cardstock, which is fabulous for colouring with Copics. I cut her out with a Nellie Snellen die. Got to use my new EK Success flower punch again... love it. Added some card candy in the centre, purchased from Crafty Emma's Store and added a little pearl in the centre for class. The sentiment is from a local South African company, Great Impressions, which I purchased from Merrypak. The lovely blue lace and flowers from my stash.
I bought 2 new pairs of winter jarmies last weekend at Woollies and the 1 pair had a lengthy piece of gorgeous ribbon tied around it, as one would wrap up a gift. Never one to waste anything, I kept it and as you can see, I had the opportunity to use it on this card. It's amazing how you look at things differently with your crafter's eye!
Our wonderful team of Gorjusettes have made some stunning creations for your inspiration, so please pop around to the Totally Gorjuss challenge blog and play along with us this week. Challenges take place every Saturday, so come along and join in the FUN. The sponsor this week is Crafter's Companion. If you have not visited their website before, you're in for a real treat. There is something to suit everyone's taste. Happy browsing... Good luck with the challenge, we look forward to viewing your creations.
