Totally Gorjuss 7 - Anything but a card.

Well girls it's Friday again and here we are with another challenge from Totally Gorjuss. This week we would like you to make "anything but a card." Following the new rules you can use any gorgeous girly stamp. But if you use a Gorjuss Girl you have two chances to win. This week our lovely sponsor is The Hobby House. So there you are - for your chance to win all you need to do is enter "anything but a card. Simple.

Ok I know this looks like a card but believe me it is a gift card holder! I made a gift card holder a while ago but I could really do with some more for my nieces and nephews.

I used the sketch from Sketch and Stash. Great sketch, really easy to use. My DP is DCWV rose tinted Christmas which I have had since last year. I coloured the lovely gorjuss Girl from Sugar Nellies with my Promarkers. I used a House Mouse "To/From" stamp inside - I just didn't ink the House Mouse LOL!! I finished off with some lace, card candy a Martha Stewart snowflake and jewels. The corners to hold the gift card were cut out using a punch.

The other challenges I'm hoping to enter are :-

Cupcake - A gift card holder.

Papertake Weekly - Christmas.

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Brown and pink.

Charisma Cardz - Christmas.

Susie's Sassy Challenge - Pink and sparkly.

Creative Card Crew - Favourite things - snowflake, jewels and card candy.

I think that's all the challenges I'm entering! Now I'm off the do the Penny Black blog hop. I've only had all week to get it done......but I have been busy with other commitments.

Have a nice weekend girls and hope to see you tomorrow.

  4. Hi Kat, well this is definitely pink and sparkly :) I love the image and the papers are gorgeous. Thanks for joining us at susie's sassy challenge. Hugs, Denise x

  5. Hi Kat, this is so pink and girly, lovely...
    I don't have any gorjuss stamp's so it's good to hear they have changed the rules...

    Thank's for your email, we have load's on this weekend, Pete has just gone out with James to look at a new car for him, he has been sharing mine since passing his test, now he has some experience I have agreed to part exchange my car, as long as I can still use it.I have the use of 3 car's so it work's out ok. My Mom has a mobility car I drive and I also drive Pete's company car, so I can't see the point of getting one of my own right now

    We are taking some more stuff to the hospice charity shop later and going to carry on clearing the loft, it's taking some time but it's been good to keep busy.
    Alice's husband has asked me to help him with her clothes, so I got the collection number from the charity shop as they do a free collection, and I think that it's best to send it all in one when he is ready to do that.
    Thank you for your email, I will send you one back soon as...
