Gorjuss set

Hello. Today I have a quick and easy set of four birthday cards. All using Gorjuss girls, the same dies and the same paper pad. I simply wanted to sit and watercolour without having to rack my brain over layouts and what not. So the answer - keep them all the same!

I think the green one is my favourite. Love that sagey shade of green!

merry christmas

Hello. Another one for the Christmas box. The background is a paper from the My Minds Eye 6x6 paper pad 'Sugar Plum'. The gorgeous ted is 'aiming to please' by Penny Black. I used watercolour pencils to colour. The tree is die cut - a Memory Box one (I think).

with a bang!

Hello. Here I am. And I have a fun card to share. The stamp and sentiment is from 'Your Next Stamp' and the papers are 'fun and frolic' by My Favourite Things.

I coloured using Copic marker pens and then sat for at least 20 minutes deciding googly eyes or not! And as you can see it was not! And the reason? The googly eyes were slightly smaller than his 'real' eyes and left an unsightly (sorry) border. Anyone else this fussy?
