Totally Gorjuss 169 - Anything Goes + Lace.

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well and looking forward to a nice weekend. Not sure what the weather's going to be like but it's been pretty changeable this week. Sunshine, rain, wind and yesterday we had some sleet and the postie said he had seen hail.

This week at Totally Gorjuss our challenge is "Anything goes plus lace." I think we're spoiling you just now with all these easy challenges lol! So no excuses now come and join us. We're sponsored by J&C Creations so you might want to pop over and take a look at their online store.

I used :-
Image :- LOTV diecut.
DP :- New LOTV/Nitwits papers.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
Lace :- Ribbon Girl.
Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
Sakura clear glitter gel pen on her hair ribbon and the edges of the petals on the rose.

That new LOTV/Nitwits paper is gorgeous, I love it. I ordered it at noon on Wednesday when it went on sale and my postie delivered it on Thursday. Brilliant service from LOTV and the much maligned Royal Mail.

Not sure if I like this card though. I love the DP and the lace and the sweet image but I'm not sure if it looks a bit busy. I made it quickly on Friday, photographed it and then went to work. After work we had to take the dogs to the vet for their booster jags - that was a lot of fun - not! So I didn't see it online till after that and then I thought mmm..... not sure if I like this!

I'm entering the following challenges :-
Sketch and Stash :- Sketch, option diecuts.
Simon Says Stamp :- Anything Goes.
Bunny Zoe :- Anything Goes.
Allsorts :- Let's Get Cute.
By the Cute and Girly :- Roses are Red.

I'm going away to my daughter's after work today as we're babysitting on Sunday and then having a day off on Monday. I'm looking forward to the babysitting and the day off.

I'd like to say hello and welcome to my new followers. Nice to see you here. Hopefully I'll have time to catch  up with all my favourite blogs and my DT work this weekend.

Thanks for looking and if you leave me a comment I'll be able to visit you too. Have a lovely weekend everyone.
