The most gorjuss day!

Well as a lot of you now know Karen has asked me to become a permanent member of the sugar nellie DT! As you can imagine I am over the moon and have been dying to tell people {other than my OH and my mum!}, so am so glad I can finally tell you all properly! Thank you for all the well wishes and congratulations I have already had, I cannot tell you how much they mean to me. I almost didn't apply for the DT call as I didn't think I had a chance to be honest, I have been a guest designer for them previously, but there are so many talented ladies {and gentlemen} out there I though it was a really long shot! Boy am I glad I decided to enter. Sugar Nellie stamps are just my all time my favourites, Maggie with flowers was my first ever stamp purchase so this is like a dream come true for me!

Congrats to all the other DT members who have been chosen, I feel honoured to be chosen alongside you as you are all so talented. I look forward to starting my DT work and hopefully making some cards which will inspire others out there!


So onto today's card which I made to celebrate my new position. I though it only appropriate that I use one of the wonderful Gorjuss Girls from the new set {available at funky kits}, which Bernie kindly sent me! I just LOVE the gorjuss girls as I know many of you do too!

I coloured her with my koh-i-nor pencils before cutting her out with my nesties and the out of bounds technique. The sentiment is Hero Arts and the papers are from the new BG lemonade pad, these are just so yummy! CS is coredinations and has been distressed with an emery board. Pearls/brad/flower spacer/Prima flowers are all from my stash and I recycled the twine from a clothing tag! I also followed the sketch over at Simon Says Stamp this week so I will be entering it over there!

Well that's enough for now, a bit of a long winded post from me tonight, hope you're all still with me and have not dropped off to sleep! Lol! I'm going to have a little wander around blog land now and see what you've all been up to!

Thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely comments. TTFN!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
