Well.... hello there!!!

I have had a blogging break. Did you notice? I'm sure you probably didn't, but I just felt today that I wanted to do a post as I have sooooo many things on my mobile that I've worked on over the past month or so, but not gotten around to posting!

Life has been a bit of a bind over the last month or so with one thing or another, and I really haven't been bothered about posting. I've had no inclination to do much, other than what I needed to. I'm sure you know how that feels. However, I am back in the land of the living again, and trying my best to regain my mojo and get it back to full working order!

I also really need to suss out how to post off my new mobile, so I can update whilst I am on the go. In all honesty, I'm not really managing to get onto the laptop to do anything other than check my mail and print out things from Digital Designer for an upcoming demo!

So... what have I to show you today? Well, just a little Gorjuss or two me thinks... these were some samples that I left at Ackworth Garden Centre after my demo the other week..

This card combines both the Gorjuss stamp, which has been coloured with watercolour pencils, and the Kraft Notes Forever Friends papers... I love these papers. The colours are beautiful!

Again, the same stamp coloured slightly darker and popped onto an 8 x 8 inch card which has been decorated with the Gorjuss papers from the 12 x 12 inch pack. The colours in the 12 inch pack and the 8 inch pack are two different colours and both are lovely!!!

I was asked to combine the heartwarmer sentiments, so dutifully did as I was told and used them as a feature on the card. They are perfect to go with everything really, but this matched in with the kraft notes papers perfectly.

Now.. this little beauty. She is actually on a puffy box made with my Xcut score board, and she was coloured in with the Artiste brush markers. It gives a totally different look to the usual pencils that I love to use, and if you're wondering how to get the skin tones, then I've done a step by step guide in the last Creativity magasine (March issue).

As well as the Gorjuss, there are many many things that I am totally loving out of this past two months demos, and I will be sure to come back and show them to you!

I will leave you with a little photo of my boy.. Senna...

He is such a sad little fella at the minute after losing his companions.. we lost his brother Biela quite a few years ago, and his sister Kiarra passed away at the end of January. He loves his cuddles and kisses, and even though he is loved very much, he still seems to miss his buddies. Bless him. 

On this photo he's looking quite old. Well, in fact, he actually is. He's nearly 15 now. A good age for our boy. I hope to have a few more years with him yet.. love him lots.
