Totally Gorjuss and some more Rawr!

Hi there - have you summer weather, monsoon weather or a bit of both? We've had some most peculiar weather! Tuesday this week was glorious.... it basically seemed to go downhill from then on! We've also had some torrential rain. Fortunately no flooding here - unlike some areas - one of the advantages of living on top of a very big hill!

So a new challenge has just, well yesterday, gone live over at Totally Gorjuss This weeks its an easy sketch - remember I draw them so they're bound to be easy :)) The prize this week is from Joanna Sheen - who has some marvellous new stuff in... ~nudge nudge wink wink~

So here's my take on it....

One of the last releases from Lili of the Valley - isn't she sweet? The sentiment is also a LOTV stamp. Papers are basic grey Eva, coloured with Copics.

Close of the flowers all from WOC - Now I can't remember ever buying the orange ones but they were really useful and brighten this arrangement up nicely.

Now when I was rashly chopping up my sheet of this lovely green card for matting I thought I wasn't going to have enough to cut for the scalloped surround on my image. I had a sudden light bulb moment! I cut the scalloped piece out of my base layer!

Like this... and no one knows... well apart from you reading this of course ;))

So the Rawr in my title? Well there's a few more monsters in the family!

This cute little chap is Rufus... cute horns huh?

This is Malcom

Lavinia his sister

And last but not least Montgomery. Montgomery is a bit saucy, if you don't watch him he's always winking at the girls!

So when there's a few more in the family these little guys will be off to their new home. At the moment there's some heated discussion going on in the bag they're in. Montgomery has been winking at Olivia!
