Totally Gorjuss meets Sketch Saturday

It's Saturday and the sun is shining! Wheeeee! Hope you are getting some warmth were you are too.

Only the one card for you today as we've been out most of the morning and there is a rather interesting rugby match on later that I would particularly like to watch and I want to get dinner prepped before the match kicks off.  There could be blood on the carpet as Toad and I will be supporting opposing teams (thought he was going to explode last night because I cheered when Wales scored a try against France, but they were heavily down at the time so it seemed the sporting thing to do!).

Anyhoo, staying with my green theme of the moment, one card for two challenges
Totally Gorjuss It's For You Mum; and
Sketch Saturday Week 92
I wasn't too sure about this sketch until I started working with it and then I sort of fell in love with it a little bit.  I shall certainly use it again another time.

I've used Whiff of Joy Willow Shopping, what a darlin' she is, and coloured he with Copics and ProMarkers.  I have paper-pieced her shopping bags to tie in with the DPs, which are a selection of Basic Grey, Papercellar and Daisy & Dandelion.  Sentiment is Personal Impressions and green gems and greed cardstock are from stash.  Willow is such a babe - so here's a close up ....

Not in a million years would I see my beloved mother going out shopping like this, but I think she does in her dreams.  Love you mum.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Gorgeous card Squirrel. Love your colouring and the paper piecing.
I am a little unsure about this sketch ... summoning up the courage whilst watch a certain game on the telly. I had a very grumpy hubby last night ... being Welsh and all that!!

Gorgeous card Squirrel - your colouring is amazing!
Unfortunately it's rather soggy here...and the b****y rugby makes driving around West London a nightmare on match days...it took me 20 mins just to get from one side of Kew Bridge to the other after work today...and that doesn't include the time spent queueing in traffic to get to the bridge!!!
