My First Totally Gorjuss DT Card

Come on, be kind to me - it's been a horrendous week and was beginning to think I wasn't even going to get a card made, let alone posted!  Don't you just hate it when work gets in the way of life?

Anyway, those beautiful babes that are Totally Gorjuss have a sketch for you this week, and a right little cracker it is too.
No excuses for not having a go at this one - want to see lots and lots of your lovely entries this week!

Bear in mind that I was out in the conservatory, in the freezing cold, late one night this week putting this together so you will have to forgive me the straight interpretation of the sketch - at that time of night I simply didn't have the courage or the energy to freeze any longer while I fiddled around with the frilly bits.

I love this little girlie with the bird - makes me feel as if Spring is almost here.  She's coloured with a mixture of Copics (for the skin tones) and ProMarkers.  Classic circle Nestabilities for the circle (d'oh), and the papers are from an issue of Making Cards.  I'd been saving these as daisies are my number one favourite flower and I couldn't bear to cut into them but needs must!  These just feel so fresh and alive.  Pearls are from my stash.

And, if it's not being too cheeky I would like to enter this into this weeks challenges for
Passion For ProMarkers Back To Nature, and
Cute Card Thursday Lucky Green and
Crafty Catz Shades of Green and
The Pink Elephant Add Green and
Stamp Something Something Girly

Thanks for dropping by, hope your weekend is a brilliant one and, don't forget, Totally Gorjuss!

Hugs, Squirrel xx
