Totally Gorjuss 12 - Sketch.

Good afternoon girls, I can't believe it's Saturday again already! Worse....when I changed the date stamp when I finished today I had to change it to the 11th!!! Already, and the 1st seems just a blink away.

Anyway since it's Saturday it's time for another Totally Gorjuss challenge and this week we have a sketch from the very talented Net. This is a great sketch and I'm looking forward to seeing what lovely cards all you clever ladies out there come up with.

Since I was a little late in the week making this card I hit on the idea of using black and white with a little touch of colour. And what a coincidence that is what Crafty Creations want this week so I can enter this card for their challenge. The main DP is from Doodlebug Designs and the spotty piece is from DCWV. I coloured the lovely Gorjuss Girl - available from Funky Kits who have a sale on just now with 10 stamps at half price -with Promarkers. I used nesties to cut out the image as usual and the edge of the circle is also edged with Poppy Promarker as is the sentiment and the card candy from Craftwork Cards is also coloured.

I discovered that there is a newCraftwork Cards challenge blog and the first challenge is C for Card Candy so I can enter that too.

I had a horrendous journey home from work today. Snow falling and a very white, very narrow, hilly, bendy minor road is not a good combination. It is only 2 miles but I was very scared. I've always lived in the country and had to drive in horrible conditions for more years than I want to admit but I don't think I've ever been so scared. My husband just came home and even he couldn't get up the hill on the road which is only just over a mile and not nearly so scary so he had to come the longer way home. I think we are off now to take my daughter to work in Aberdeen. Like me it is just assumed that she will turn up for work whatever the conditions. Some people tend to assume that if it is ok where they are then it is ok for everyone else!!! Where we are it is definitely not ok. While we are out I think a quick trip to Tesco would be a good idea!!

See you later. Keep safe and warm everybody.

  1. Hi kat, love all the element's in this card, I was hoping to make the challenge this week with the images you kindly sent me, but as my card is almost finished it doesn't match the sketch....
    I have been having a whale of a time learning different techniques, this Alter Art stuff is really interesting....and not as scary as you would think...

    Sorry to hear your getting it bad there with the weather, we went to tesco today in Pete's work 4x4 vehicle. You should have seen it there, I think everyone was panic shopping because of the weather, it took us half an hour just to park, and inside was packed....
    With his job, as it's all outside work he sent everyone home Wednesday and went back Friday to find not much to do really....
    Not sure what the weather will be like next week, so he may be home again...

    You keep warm and safe...

    We have alot of snow, I still have no car, no confidence to drive his in this, but I need a trip to Tesco, Philips birthday on Monday, so I will need a few things for that too.
