Totally Gorjuss (DT) - Welcome

Welcome to another challenge at Totally Gorjuss and a very warm welcome to some new followers.  I am thrilled that you found something of interest to make you join.  Always a pleasure.

As my regulars will know, I started work on Monday after being on leave for a month and boy, did I hit the road running... hard!!! As you can see, there have been no posts since last Saturday, sorry about that but I've just been too exhausted to sit at my craft table.  Funny how one gets used to having those little 60 minute snoozies when you're on leave huh!!!  I tell you, by the time I'd eaten and bathed at night this week, my eyes were ready to close by 8pm.

Enough yakking and complaining, let's get down to business, shall we?  We have a wonderful challenge for you this week... We want you to wish someone a warm Welcome i.e. a new baby into the family, new neighbours to the neighbourhood, etc.  I've made a card for the latter.  Hope you like it!

As mentioned in previous posts, I plan to start using some of those unused stamps that are just collecting dust in the cupboard and this is one of them.  Bought it, didn't like it when I got home, still don't like it, but it sure came in handy for this challenge (smile). It's in my "to get rid of" box.  I'll be tossing it back in there after this.

No great shakes with this one, but then we're all entitled to have our "off" days or what?  Thanks for popping by.   

Happy crafting, hugs Sharon x

Hi Sharon

What a beautiful card, I love the "doily" that you used. It is beautiful, the white is so crisp and together with the purple - purple is after all one of my faviourite colours.

Enjoy the rest of you Sunday evening.
