Oh its Gorjuss!

Hi there Bloggettes.


Ahem! Sorry for shouting but I'm a bit pleased about that. Saying that I've new apple trees to plant and some grass seed to sow.... so a spot of rain might be OK. Only at night though. We thought we'd try to get a bit of grass growing in what is laughingly called the lawn or moss patch. I don't know if I dare try moss killer on it.... then it wouldn't be at all green though! Enough of my gardening dilemmas ;))

I've just launched a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss. This week we want to see a Gorjuss Girl on the entries. Oh and we have a special sponsor this week (they're all special of course) But this one is Suzanne Woolcott the clever lady who draws the Gorjuss Girls! How fantastic is that? Yes really fantastic! Suzanne is giving a prize from her shop - even fantastic-er! So come on over for a look and get your Gorjuss Girls out!

So A couple of photos of my little effort.

This little girl with her teddy is one of my favourites. She's been coloured with Copics. The papers are MME 'Quite Contrary' and came from The Hobby House, The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts The gingham paper is a Pink Petticoat download - total bargain! Tons of colours of ginghams for very few pennies! I've printed it out on Rymans bright white coated card-stock which gives a lovely finish. Sentiment stamp from Dies to Die For, a spot of punching a la Martha Stewart and voilĂ !

Now you may or may not have noticed the background to this little cutie. The spots... no its not your eyes! Now I saw this on someones blog - I'm sorry I can't remember who's it was!

Anyway I thought it looked nice (well theirs certainly did) so I had a go - I think I may need some practice! But hey we all have to start somewhere right?

The now obligatory arty shot ;))

And as a special treat.... another arty shot - wow huh?

I hope no ones fainted at the excitement of two arty shots.

So have a super weekend Bloggettes.
