Gorjuss girl

Well I think she's a Gorjuss girl anyway! She was a stamped gift from my friend Sue. Anyway I thought she'd be perfect for this sketch challenge from Mojo Monday.

Sugar Nellie Stamp, Copics, Cookie Cutters, Nestabilities, Doodlebug paper

I chose the paper first! The colours feel so summery as was the weather this morning. I chose the image to match and then worked on the layout. I just can't do anything except square cards, so adapted the sketch a little.

I shaded Gorjuss girl with Copics (I hope I'm improving now) and used Quickutz Cookie Cutters to cut out the rounded edge squares and Nestabilities for the circles. The backing card is coordinations and the flower is from Papermania, although the colours weren't right so I altered them with Copics.

Well, my Dad and step mum are on their way and the boys and hubby are fast asleep - alright for some eh? We've got a busy day tomorrow - dropping Zac off at his Grans, take Blake to baby clinic to get him weighed etc and then pick my Mum up from the airport. Great she's coming, rubbish as James goes back to work on Wednesday - boo hiss.



  1. Love her! Great colors for the card too! Nice work :)

  2. You did a wonderful job coloring!! I love the colors, too---it's SUPPOSED to be summer here, but it feels more cool than anything. Thanks for sending the heat my way!

  5. Your colouring is absolutely ace!
    I'm not yet convinced that I like these little girly figures. Some manufacturers produce images which are so out of proportion so as to be grotesque, but this young lady looks quite cute however. The nearest I've got to them is Tilda!
    The card looks fab!
    Have fun with your mum!
