Totally Gorjuss Christmas Blues!

Morning all! I did not sleep at all well last night because of the howling winds, did anyone else have a night like that?

Todays card was made for the new blog challenge Totally Gorjuss. Now those of you who know me well know how much I love my Gorjuss Girls! So of course I had to enter this weeks challenge ' Christmas Blues'! I just adore this little cutie with the fox from set 1, so versatile!


Image: foxy from the Gorjuss Girl range by Sugar Nellie. Available here from funky kits. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor.

Paper: DCWV Christmas Stack 2008


Sentiment: Craftwork Cards

Tools: distress inks, sponges, blending brushes, xcut snowflake punch, EK Success 'Dotted Wave' border punch

Misc: pearl and glitter from stash

Well I hope you like today's card. This is card number 39 in my christmas cards box! Only another 21 to go! Lol! Must make some quicker, CAS cards!

I spent last night doing a christmas wish list! Jules is doing a SU Christmas Wish list service. Such a fab idea. You make a list of what items in the new SU catalougue you would like and send it to her. Then you give her details to your friends and family and they can contact her direct to purchase things for you off of your wish list! Genious. I am definately hoping for lots of fab SU gifts under my tree this year. Oh and if you set up a christmas wish list and someone purchases something for you off of your list, you will be entered into a draw for a chance to win a SU hamper worth £50! Even better! Please pop over to Jules' blog and have a look at how you can join her wonderful Christmas Wish list service!

Well must dash and get ready for work. Ooooh before I foret I have my graduation ceremony tomorrow at Huddersfield University for the Specialist Commmunity Nursing Practitioner Course I have just finished. My mum, dad and fiance John are all coming with me and I am looking forward to seeing the girls who I did the course with again as I have not seen them since May! I will make sure I get some pics and post them for you later in the week!

Thanks for stopping by today to say hi!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
