G'day peeps!

This week over at Sketch Saturday there is another fabulous sketch, which I've followed to make this card. Rather embarassingly, I haven't used any of my Gorjuss Girls to date (bought a couple of individual stamps from set 1), so I thought I'd better get on with it! LOL! I know most people seem to colour the Gorjuss girls' hair black, but as my own darling daughter and all-round gorjuss girl is blonde, I went with this colour! I also wanted to use my brand new MME Pretty Please papers that arrived at the weekend. I ordered one of every sheet of the range, as I just know they'll be hard to get soon. I didn't bother to order the MME Bloom & Grow papers when they were first in stock - big mistake, as I've only just got them all after waiting weeks and weeks for stocks to be replenished!

Hope you have a great rest of the day! TTFN!

Hugs, Sem x
