A Gorjuss Simon Says Sketch

Good morning everyone! Firstly, thank you sooo much for the lovely words you've left me about my new design team position for Sugarnellie! I'm still on cloud 9!

Today I've got a Simonsays sketch entry for ya, with one of my fave gorjuss girlies-it's such a versatile image. I also saw recently on Suzanne's website (the super talented lady who designs all things gorjuss!) that a few really hardcore gorjuss fans had got this image tattooed on them, and lovely it looked too! Anyways...I've done a fair bit of distressing on this card with my distressing tool, but scissors can achieve the same effect. I've also done some more paper tearing-really into doing this atm!

Stuff: Sugarnellie stamp-Gorjuss girl coloured with Letraset Promarkers, all papers are k and co, distress inks (colours=vintage photo, antique linen), core'dinations cardstock, martha stewart heart punch, hero arts sentiment, prima flowers, buttons and pearls from elaine at quixotic (her service is outstanding btw), cuttlebug with nesties, raffia and crocheted lace from stash.

I hope everyone has a fantastic day and its Friday so the weekend is nearly here-wahoo! I'm taking Leo to the beach today with my friend and little boy so should be lots of fun! Thanks so much for stopping by and any comments you might leave-they make my day!

P.S. To celebrate my design team position I'll be offering candy real soon!
