Totally Gorjuss 9 Free and Easy.

Good afternoon everyone. I'm a bit late with this post but I didn't know what this week's Totally Gorjuss challenge was until late last night. Net had a little incident where she thought she had posted the challenge on the DT blog but unfortunately she hadn't. Then I had been so busy making Christmas cards that I didn't check again till later last night. So this is the Gorjuss Girl card that I made very quickly.

I used some Magic Christmas DP from Fancy Pants. The base card is red and I've added some red ribbon and gems and my favourite Cuttlebug snowflake. I also used my nesties to cut out the label shape to stamp my Gorjuss Girl. This was edged in red like the snowflake and I coloured some card candy from Craftwork Cards with a red Promarker. Very quick and simple....just what I need just now. Just realised I've forgotten to add a sentiment. It'll probably be one from Craftwork Cards!

Since we are doing "Free and Easy" this time Net has also put the next card on the challenge blog too. I made lots of easel cards on Thursday and Friday and this is one of them. The DP is the gorgeous Wonderful Winter from MME and the cute image is from Penny Black. Another of my favourite snowflakes plus a small Martha Stewart one. The card candy, sentiment and flower are all from Craftwork cards again.

I love these easel cards. I must be one of the last people in blogland to make one though LOL!! It is so long since I first saw one that I couldn't remember where there was a tutorial so I just did my own thing.

The second card fits these challenges:-

Pile it On :- Tinsel Town - glitter.

Simon Says Stamp :- Let it snow. Stickle snow under sledge.

The Secret Crafter :- Snow.

Create 4 Fun :- Easel card.

Stamp Something :- Winter wonderland.

Daring Cardmakers :- Polka Dots.

Hope you want to go over to the Totally Gorjuss blog to have a look at the rest of the DT's creations. As usual they are amazing and this week we have a great prize for you.....a surprise stash bag. Hope to see all your amazing entries during the next week. And now I am off to make some more cards. Think I still have at least 20 to make....oh dear!!
