Time for Totally Gorjuss..

Hi Girls

A quick card from me today - this time for our Christmas In July challenge at Totally Gorjuss.  I think you can tell I'm not 100 per cent well yet as I'm not very happy with this... in fact it may well end up in the bin!  But I didn't know what else to do!  Maybe I'll add a sentiment and see what it looks like, maybe not...

Anyway... it's using an image from one of our delightful sponsors... Krista at Saturated Canary.  Our other sponsor is The Ribbon Girl.  This image is called 'Nutcracker' - and I coloured her as usual with a mix of Copics and Promarkers.   Then I just used the largest of my Li'l Inkers Square Dies with the faux stitching.... mounted it on red card, added a bit of red yarn, and called her done.

Don't forget to pop over to the blog and see what the other Gorjusette have come up with...  you may find better inspiration there!! LOL!  Then you could win a lovely prize from our sponsors.

Hope you've all got a nice weekend planned.... I'm going to try to get out and do a bit of gardening, if only trimming the roses.  My lovely OH is at work, so it'll be a quiet one.

Big hugs and Happy Crafting

  9. Hi Christine, Sorry to hear that you have not been well from reading your posts sound like you have had a tough time of it, hope that you are on the mend now, it must have been caused by the shock of all this hot weather we have had!
    This is a really lovely card great image, love the stitching and the way you have filled the white space with the twine and bow.
    Looks like I have also missed some more of your brilliant creations, they are all great.
