Totally Gorjuss 226 - Pink and Green.

Good morning everyone. Is it really Saturday again? Where does the time go? I guess if you can see this it must be Saturday right enough!

So it must be time for another challenge at Totally Gorjuss. Thanks to everyone who joined us last week and don't forget to check if you won. We're sponsored by Crafters' Companion this week so I'm sure you'll want to join us.

I've made a birthday card for my great-niece this week. She'll be 21 on the 15th so I'm in plenty of time, I just need to remember to post it! Great-niece makes me sound ancient doesn't it? I'd like to point out that my brothers are 9 and 12 years older than me and I was only about 14 when my first niece was born lol!

Hope Heather likes her card. What do you think?

I used the banner punch from Stampin' Up! to cut the banners from this gorgeous LOTV paper. The hearts are cut out and embossed with Fashionable Hearts Embosslits from SU and the butterflies were cut out with the Bitty Butterfly punch also from SU. I added a few gems from the Hobby House.

I'll try to catch up with you all this evening. I know I've been a very bad blogger recently and I can only apologise. This afternoon is our WRI group show. Their are 9 institutes in our group and it is very competitive. For once this year I was organised and not rushing to take my entries to my friend on Friday evening. I even had my cherry scones made for the teas. We were at her house on Monday to lay out our co-operative table. This consists of 6 different items and mine was a congrats card for a new arrival. I had to make it in green and lemon as the lady who was making the knitted item made a pram blanket in white, lemon and green random wool. I would have preferred pink or blue but I can see her point as she knitted it for her unborn grandchild and she doesn't know if it is a boy or a girl.

Thanks for looking and for all your kind comments. It's nice to get a bit of encouragement and not feel as if you're on your own lol!
