A Gorjuss Girl........

Hi Everyone. How's your day been? I've had a lovely day sitting out in the sunshine all day with one of my best friends and her super cute baby, Teddy. I wish the recent good weather was a signal that summer is finally starting in the UK but apparently, it's changing again from tomorrow - so no such luck!
Anyway, back to the business of cardage! There's a new challenge starting today at Shopping Our Stash and this week, we want you to use something that you got in a swap, a RAK, that you won or that has come from a card or a page kit, etc. If you have absolutely nothing like that at all, then use something candy/sweet related (i.e. red/white like peppermint sticks, dessert or cupcake images or papers - you get the idea!) For my card, I've used some flowers that were sent to me by my lovely friend, Edna - you might remember, I told you about it on here a little while ago - I'd seen some flowers on a card on Edna's blog and commented how much I liked them and then Edna, being the fab person she is, sent some to me. It's always nice to get something sweet in the post - makes a change from the usual bills!! Here's my card:
Image - Gorjuss Girl from Sugar Nellie coloured with promarkers.
Papers - My Mind's Eye.
Ribbon - Papermania.
Other - Flowers (as above!), Pearls from stash, Word sticker from stash attached to ribbon tag die cut with Nellie's multi frame die.

I'm also entering this card into Sweet Sketch Wednesday's Sketch #108 and Passion for Promarker's week 107 theme 'tie a yellow ribbon'.
And I think that's about it from me for now - don't forget to join in with the challenge over at Shopping Our Stash - it really is a great way of using up that stash you've been 'saving' LOL! See you tomorrow..........xx
