Totally Gorjuss (DT) - It's Spring!

Good Morning

Thank you so much for popping by again.  It's Springtime in the northern hemisphere, so that is what we'd like you to create this week at the Totally Gorjuss challenge blog... a project/card depicting SPRING!  In my part of the world, we're still experiencing hot days with a few coolish one's inbetween, so Autumn is going to be most welcome.  That usually happens just on and after Easter weekend.

Here's my little creation, which I hope will inspire you to take part.  This time I have used an Elisabeth Bell image, called Susan.  She's adorable and it was so nice using her again.

The sentiment was sent to me more than a year or so ago by another blogger in Canada and this is the first opportunity I have to use it.   I had admired it so much on her creation, that she offered to stamp and send me a few.  Thanks Christine.

As my regulars will know, I love my pearls, so it was a nice change hauling out the brads again.  I placed one in the centre of the white flower and then a little one in each corner of the card.  Put a little bit of dimension glaze on Susan's bouquet of flowers to make them pop!

Our sponsor this week is Heather's Hobbie Haven.  Do pay them a visit for all your crafty needs.

All comments are most welcome. 

Take care, hugs Sharon x
