Totally Gorjuss (DT) - Sunshine

Firstly, a very warm welcome to Sue who has become my 350th follower... woohoo, how awesome is that!  Always nice meeting new people. So pleased you've joined our little group Sue, thank you!

Winter has well and truly arrived in Cape Town.  I tell you, it's kinda difficult trying to think of beautiful sunshine and warm, sandy beaches when it's freezing cold and stormy outside.  Our challenge at Totally Gorjuss this week is - SUNSHINE.  I went for bright and bold colours and have given the stamps a bit of a rest.  Thought it would be nice to use a sentiment for a change.

My gorgeous paper is from  the Bazzill Basics Paper range called AVALON.  I love these colours. 24 sheets of double-sided 6x6 papers....yummy!

The beautiful lace was a gift from one of my dear blogfriends... thanks so much honey. I just LOVE this lace right now and am going to be using it sparingly! LOL  The other embellies are the MS Butterfly and a feather for a change. I added a few pearls which are sticky ones I found in one of our local stores.

Our sponsor this week is Crafter's Companion - they have amazing products in their store, so do pay them a visit.

Please visit the rest of the TGDT teams blogs.  They have some wonderful creations for your inspiration.  You can find links to their blogs in my sidebar.

Thanks so much for popping by and wherever you are, I hope it's warmer than where I am....brrrrr!

hmmmm...methinks another pair of boots are calling my name (do NOT fall off your chair Sandra!!!).  Sorry everyone, this is just a little joke between my dear friend Sandra and I. I am going through one of those phases right now and have about 8 pairs already. Another pair won't do me any harm now will it! LOL  It was so nice skype-ing with you last night dear ;)

Thanks for popping by. Enjoy your weekend.

big hugs Sharon x

Hello Sharon. What a beautiful card, and I love the gorgeous bright colours, pretty lace and fantastic sentiment as the focal point. I think you should do more of this style, its perfect.
Oh my goodness, Pair No.9 (THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKING), you are going to have to get an extension, to keep all these in, haha.
Speak later.
Love Sandra xxx
