Well Hello Everyone

I hope you are all well.  Before I forget if you are interested in joining the Totally Gorjuss Design Team then make sure you have sent an e-mail with all your details to:

as the closing date is 7 January 2013.

It's Saturday again already - wow doesn't time just seem to fly by - and that means that it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss.  This week the challenge is "Anything Goes + Ribbon" and our sponsor this week is J & C Creations.

As always, if you need a little inspiration the lovely girlies over at Totally Gorjuss have made some fab creations so make sure you check them out.

Here is the card I have made:

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Saturated Canary - Belle - by Krista Smith
Papers:  My Minds Eye - Lost & Found - Blush
Corner Die:  Whimsy - Corner Die Set
Lace & Button:  The Hobby House
Tulle, Twine & Ribbon:  My Stash

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E11 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E29 E27 E25 E23 E53
T-Shirt:  R85 R83 R81
Trousers:  T6 T5 T4 T3
Trainers:  E44 E43 E42 E41 / T3 T2 T1
Mobile Phone & Handbag:  R29 R24 R22
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

The image has been outlined with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
The papers have been edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink

A final picture to show you the inside where I have mirrored the front of the card:

And there you have it.

Right - time for me to start getting everything ready for my first day back at work on Monday :o(  What a culture shock that will be after having the last two weeks off!

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for dropping by to see me.

Great job here Hazel. Love the sort of grungy look to the background paper...nice to add the hot pink damask stamp over the edge. The kraft is the crowning touch to this card.
