Sketch Saturday and a Gorjuss Girl

Hello, happy Monday!

Hope the new week is off to a good start and your Monday is going well. It was a beautiful weekend here in New England, sunny and warm. The snow is starting to melt. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Spring is on it's way!

I've been busy with some website updates today, but took a break to try out some new images I received from a swap. I made this card for the challenge over on Sketch Saturday. I love the sketch this week, it was easy and fun to use. I will definitely use it again sometime too.

I received this sweet image from Karen and I just had to use her right away. Karen kindly sent me a bunch of Gorjuss Girls images in exchange for some postage. That works for me! I love being able to try out new images and then decide if I love them enough to get the stamps! I think I may need the stamp for this one! :)

I colored her with Copics, which ran a little, not sure why, but next time I'll just have to color her with something else. No biggie. I used some SU! Sale-a-Bration designer paper and Bashful Blue cardstock. The embellishments are Prima flowers and SU! Button Bouquet buttons. This was a very quick and simple card.

I hope to have some more stamping time later today, got lots of new images to try out from the swap I hosted! So much fun! Hope to do it again sometime or maybe join in if someone else would like to host! :)

Enjoy the rest of your day, happy stamping!! :)
