Ice ice baby!

Hi there Bloggettes - crikey its cold! Now we've been having the odd drip drip as a teeny tiny bit of all that snow is melting. But accompanied with the cold we've got one or two icicles. Look at these ones outside my craft room window! Yipes! They're over 2 feet long. I was going to show you a photo of the ones on the conservatory..... they're only a foot long so I didn't bother ;)) I meant they're titchy little things.

Oh most of that white stuff on the photo should be black as its the road! Its about 6" of packed solid ice. Needless to say our cars are still on the drive for now.

Now a new challenge has happened over at Totally Gorjuss. This week its a nice easy sketch, its easy because I drew it and I only do easy ;)) Oh and this week we're lucky enough to have a super duper Guest Designer, none other that the super talented Rach Jakes! She's made a fantastic card, I couldn't believe my little sketch could look that good! Just to add a cherry to the cake this week we're sponsored by Joanna Sheen. The winner gets a £10 voucher to spend in her shop. Good huh?

So this is the easy sketch....
So here's what I made. yes the glue was still wet when I took the photo! No change there then eh? I discovered if I'm quick I can do it before the embellishments fall off....

Anyway I used one of these sweet little Hanglars, coloured her with Copics, used some Basic Grey Wassail (my LAST sheet as well sob!) Flowers from Wild Orchid and a sentiment from Lili of the Valley.
And there she was done!

Pop over and have a look, the other Gorjussettes have made some beautiful cards. Oh and there's a prize remember, you got to be in it to win it!
