At Totally Gorjuss we thought that a "Thank You" card would be a good challenge for this time of year. At this time of year we all get lovely presents for Christmas and we all need to thank people for them. And of course we need to thank our lovely sponsor Joanna Sheen who has given us a £10 voucher for our winner. Joanna has lots of goodies in her online store and the service is great and there is no p&p.
I've used this sweet Gorjuss Girl holding an envelope which seems appropriate for a thank you card. I coloured her with Promarkers as usual. The DP is the gorgeous Laundry Line from MME. I love this paper. There are lovely patterns and glitter and they all fit together so well. I added some lace from Quixotic Paperie. Elaine has lots of lovely lace and a whole lot of other embellishments. I can not have a look at her online shop without buying lol! I finished off with some Prima flowers, brads and glittery jewels.
It's still very icy and snowy here and if you look closely at the sides of the photo you might see some snow out of my conservatory window lol. We went out to a local Indian restaurant for a meal this evening and even the main road was not good. The back road over to us is very icy and rutted now and the hill down to the main road is very slippy. It's a case of 1st gear and hope that you stop at the bottom!! When we got to Ellon (our nearest town) the roads were a disgrace and the pavements were pretty dangerous. Not sure how it can save money to not clear roads and pavements and then a lot of people end up at A&E! Anyway enough complaining about the road conditions I'm sure a lot of people are in the same boat.
I'm also going to enter some challenges with this card.
Quixotic :- Lace.
Magical Crafts :- Thank You.
Creative Inspirations Wednesday challenge :- Thank You.
Crafty Cardmakers :- Favourite things - my gorgeous DP and this lovely lace.
Papertake Weekly :- Sketch.
Winter Wonderland :- Thank You.
My Time to Craft :- Anything goes.
Crafty Creations :- Glitter and bling.
I think that is all the challenges that this card fits so I will finish off now and see what else I can make. I have missed making cards for the last wee while but I have caught up with a few blogs over the last few days.
Hope some of you can find time to pop over to Totally Gorjuss and join in with us this week. As you can see from my list of challenges a Thank You card would fit the bill on a lot of challenges. The rest of the DT have made some lovely cards and we are all looking forward to seeing what you make too. We would all appreciate if you could find time to leave us a comment telling us what you think of our Thank You cards.
