Totally Gorjuss (GDT) - A Sketch

Firstly, apologies for the lack of posts this week... it's just been so hectic on the work front that I've been too exhausted to sit at the craft table.

But, hey... it's Saturday and I am here to welcome you to another challenge at Totally Gorjuss.  This week we have a lovely sketch for you to follow...

And here's my little number, which I hope will give you some inspiration...

Let me tell you, this is my first successful attempt at masking... yeah, I know, probably way behind the times here, but I've been struggling to get it right and thankfully managed to do so over the weekend.  My "teacher" Paola, gave me a hard time when I was not "getting" it [she even yelled at me, more than once...lol, a real hard taskmaster this one...lol]... but she AND I persevered and viola!  I am extremely happy with the result.

I must confess, this little Elf Tilda which I purchased from Paola ages ago... hasn't seen the light of day since I got her.  I'm not even sure she's been showcased on my blog before.  I found her when I was clearing out.  The fence is Magnolia's Spring Fence.  Am really pleased that I got it.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen - do pop around to her website, she has some awesome goodies for you to buy.

Thanks so much for visiting.  We look forward to visiting YOU again this week.  hugs Sharon x

Sharon, I love this. You did a great job masking (something I don't attempt very often, but I might give it another try after seeing your card). I love the Tilda's with wings. I'm a sucker for anything angels. Your coloring is great. Thanks for sharring:)
