Gorjuss Sugar Bowl Challenge!

Good morning all. I've had a little lie in this morning after a busy week at work! No major plans for me this weekend. Just going to spend some time with my OH today and then some time to myself tomorrow whilst he's at work. Hoping to get some crafting done, but I just don't seem to have that desire at the minute, which is such a shame because I love my crafting! I don't know what's wrong with me!

Today's card was made for my sister in law's birthday which was tuesday just gone. Both her and my brother (whose birthday it was yesterday) are in London this weekend for a birthday celebration. I chose the sketch over at the Sugar Bowl this week which is by the very talented Kathy and is such an amazing sketch, I will definately be using it again! Make sure you
take a look at this weeks challenge as the winner has the chance of winning 6 Sugar Nellie stamps of their choice from Funky Kits!

As you can see I rotated the sketch to accomodate my image better. I just couldn't resist using one of the older Sugar Nellie images I have. Don't you find that with all the new stash we accquire we seem to neglect our older stash. I just love the gorjuss girls and haven't inked them up in a while so out she came! This image is perfect for my SIL as she adore's cats!


Image: 'Purrfect Friend' from the Gorjuss Girl collection by Sugar Nellie. Available here at Funky Kits. Coloured with distress inks, koh-i-noors and sansodor.

Paper: Doodlebug (pink paper, sorry don't know the name), SU patterned designer papers in Old Olive

CS: SU Kraft

Sentiment: SU Circle of Friendship

Tools: Nesties, sponges for distressing/inking edges, SU ink pad in pixie pink

Misc: Adhesive pearls from stash

I really enjoyed making this card, and I love this green pink and Kraft colour combo. It works so well together and has a lovely girly feel to it!

I am also going to enter this over at A spoon full of Sugar this week where there challeneg is 'lots of layering'! Believe me, this card involves lots of layering for me! Lol!

Before I forget, there sale is still on at Funky Kits. They have a selection of 10 Sugar Nellie stamps at half price here but hurry it ends at the end of January!

Well thanks for taking the time to stop by and see me today. I hope you all have a lovely weekend, whatever you're up to!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
