Gorjuss Birthday Girl

Hello Crafters

Oh my feels like the summer of ’76 all over again, what a bloomin’ scorcher! Don’t know where to put myself and it is still darn hot at 7.30pm and I got to do the ironing, but I am sure that Poldark will help me get through it….

Today was Mr Kim’s daughters birthday so I made a little card with a die that my ‘bestest craft buddy’ bought me, and I have only just had the chance to play. It was one of the Gorjuss Girls called appropriately ‘The Little Friend’ and I must admit I struggle with cards like this, so it took a while to reach the end. I knew I wanted the central figure but was flummoxed as to what to put behind. Well see what you think anyway…..

These dies come with sheets of paper so you can use it right out the packet. I did watch a video from you tube before I assembled her and glad I did as it gave a few good tips. As she is put together in layers, I coloured her face and arms with Spectrum Noir as the base was white, and this video mentioned colouring the edges around her hair and skin so you cannot see the layers, and it was a great tip, looks much better when assembled.

Items Used:

Ok can’t put it off any longer, got to go do that ironing pile, sure it’s got bigger while I’ve been sat here……

Have a lovely week, and to all those who recently joined me, thank you so much for visiting, I appreciate everyone of you, and hope you gain inspiration from my ramblings with a lot of smiles.

Hugs

Devine Floral Birthday!

Hello Crafters

Hope your weekend has been full and happy. Ours has been a very busy one, in fact I don’t think we have had much chance to breathe let alone anything else.

On Saturday we had a lovely morning shopping in town and before that we went to our local tea rooms for a little breakfast start, as Mr Kim needed sustenance before he was dragged around the shops. Quaint vintage feel place with great food and wonderful service for reasonable cost. Thoroughly enjoyable so if you are in the area visit Remedy Tea Rooms. We then set off to get bits and bobs, namely clothes that fit for me as my Boss said I looked like a ‘down and out’ in my clothes that were too big for me!

Once home we then literally dropped everything got ready, changed and off to my nephews 40th barbecue and my sister-in-laws birthday too. It was a lovely afternoon catching up with everyone.

For my sister-in-laws birthday I made the Hunkydory Note-lets Set, as she does a lot of handwritten notes for her son’s charity The Aaron Lewis Foundation Charity, so I knew it would come in handy, and here is the card I made:

Items Used:

I must admit the colour of this ribbon is really beautiful and it matched the distress ink Tumbled Glass edges perfectly.

Well that’s it for me, got to go make some scones for it’s not home without a cake in the house!

Have a lovely week

Hugs
