Totally Gorjuss 173 - Anything Goes plus Pink.

Good morning everyone, hope everyone is ready to enjoy the weekend. I really look forward to having a day and a half without work. I'll need to be busy though as it's just a week till my WRI group show. Needless to say I'm not organised - as usual. So no surprise there then lol! 

But it's time for another challenge at Totally Gorjuss.This week our theme is "Anything Goes plus Pink." Now I realise that everyone doesn't like pink but lots of you do so you could make a "pink" card for lots of different occasions. Birthdays, Get Well, Mothers' Day, New Baby. So even if you don't like pink you might need to make a card for someone who does lol! We're sponsored by the generous people at J&C Creations this week so please try to join us. Yet again I've made a very simple card. Took me a while though while I faffed about trying to decide what image to use, what colour of pink, whether to use DP or white embossing or coloured embossing!

I used :-
Image :- Hero Arts cut out with Sizzix die from HA/Sizzix set.
Embossing folders :- Cuttlebug.
Colouring :- Stampin' Up! markers.
Sentiment :- Stampin' Up!
Pearls :- Hobby House.

Challenges :-
CAS(E)this sketch. :- Sketch.

Simon Says Stamp :- Anything Goes.
Addicted to Stamps and More :- Anything Goes but must include stamping.
The Pink Elephant :- Anything Goes.

Thanks for looking and hope you can join us. I'll catch up later in between kniting, crocheting etc.

Nearly forgot, we're going out to the theatre tonight. We're going to His Majesty's Theatre in Aberdeen to see "The Mousetrap." I booked the tickets ages ago and I'm really looking forward to it. I never thought I'd see The Mousetrap as I've never been to London but it's travelling round the country to celebrate being onstage continuously for 60 years!

Have a lovely weekend whatever you've got planned.
