Gorjuss Birthday


My mother-in-law is coming to visit today.  For lots of people this wouldn't be happy occasion. Me? I'm thrilled. For two reasons: 1. She is lovely and 2. (and most importantly) she's taking my children home with her!!!!!!  Yahooooooooo!!  3 whole days of freedom, not being woken up by someone climbing in to bed with us at 3am and spending the rest of the night hogging the bed or wiggling, or serenading us at 5am in morning while sat on the toilet!  A full nights sleep will be mine!!!

Anyway enough bragging - I wanted to share with you all a card I made for my lovely work friend last week.   I was searching through me stamps and found some Gorjuss stamps I haven't really used very much - so decided to ink up this cutie.  Unfortunately the squirrel to the side of the girl didn't make it!

The picture is very poor quality - mainly due to me taking it in my car on a cloudy day (don't ask!) but you get the idea. I've used some more of my lovely Crate Paper packs - this one is Maggie Holmes. The tickets are super cute - I bought them in a random little craft shop and then stamped badly on them.  

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Passion for Pro Markers - Give me a P (pearls, patterned paper, pin, pink)
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Anything Goes
Hobby House Challenge - Roses
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Craftin' Boutique - Anything Goes

A very sweet looking card with a great image and design. It sounds so wonderful to get the kids out of the house for a while. Wish that could happen here too, a full nights sleep, yes please! :)
Thanks for playing with us over at PFP this week.
