A Gorjuss Day and News


Hi everyone, hope you're week's getting off to a good start:) Mine certainly is! I've got another gorjuss creation to show you today which I'm entering for Allsorts which is a fab sketch by Dawny with the additional theme of chocolate and marshmallows-mmmm yum! I'm also going to enter it at Stamp with Fun too as their challenge this week is pearls. A heads up-the new gorjuss girls are now available to buy as single girls-wohooo!

Stuff: Sugarnellie image (gorjuss girl 'party princess') coloured with Promarkers, BasicGrey and papermania papers, core'dinations cardstock, distressing tool, pearls in cappacino, heart cut from cricut (george and basic shapes cartridge), tim holtz ticket, prima and kaiserkraft flowers, rose from stash, hatpin from ebay.

My news is that Denise and Erin have asked me to become a dt member for Stamp Something. I said Yes of course!!! So excited!! Also...yesterday I was featured on Inspirational! I can't believe all the wonderful things happening to me recently-I feel so lucky! Thanks for stopping by! Huggles

  27. Congratulations! Love your card Rowena, you were asking about one I blogged earlier:
    No I didn't use a Nestie on this card! I bought a Martha Stewart punch called Flourish. I only have one and this one is really versatile! Just used it once in the centre of each rectangle and got a great frame effect. I think Bev who does design work for WoJ has done something
    similar, so not all my idea sadly.

    So now you have to buy the punch ;)

    Hugs
