Gorjuss double challenge!

Good morning all. I hope you are all keeping well. I am half way through my week off work and am thoroughly enjoying my time off! Lot's of time to craft! :-)

Today's card meets with two of this weeks challenges. I have used the sketch from SCSC and over at Stamp Something the challenge is paper piecing.

I absolutley love paper piecing and don't do it often enough, so this was the perfect opportunity for me! I thought this floral paper was perfect for her dress, just the right size flowers. I also adapted the gorjuss girl image slightly and left out the cat. I love how you can get many different images out of just one stamp.


Image: Purrfect Friend from Gorjuss Girl set 1, also available to buy singularly from funky kits, coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor

Papers: Basic Grey, Eva

Sentiment: Studio G

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties

Misc: Adhesive half pearls from stash

Well I think this will be the last post from me until I return from my relaxing break on sunday, so forgive me if I am MIA for a few days. I will catch up with you all on my return home!
I am off to the hairdressers this morning, another treat for me on my week off! I call it a treat as I haven't been for 8 months! I know, it's a long time, but I have very long hair so I can get away without visiting the hairdressers as often. 8 months is pushing it a bit though! Lol!

Have a great day everyone and enjoy the rest of your week!


Hugs, Vicky ~x~
