Totally Gorjuss # 61 - For Someone Special (DT)

Morning all!  Well, here we are at the last Saturday before Christmas - and I'm still not sorted yet.  Still got a week to go at work so no time for anything much else.  It's gonna be a tight squeeze to get it all done and I fear some of the niceties may fall by the wayside!

Anyhoo, let's get down to business - it is TOTALLY GORJUSS day, yaaaay!  Thanks to everyone who took part in our snow challenge last week - I hope that wasn't a premonition of what's to come.  Fantastic entries from you all.  Please check back to the main blog to see who was selected as the lucky winner.

And so to this week's theme and as it is our last challenge now until 8 January we would like you to show us your creations For Someone Special.

My fabulous teamies have been working their magic to bring you heaps of inspiration again and I think now would be a good time to express your thanks to them for all their hard work over the past year.  They really are a brilliant crew, and hats off to our Captain, Net, for keeping us all in order and keeping this challenge going.  Net, you are a complete star hunny.

So, enough of my waffle, here is my card (lots of pics)

Front Panel

Inside Panel 1

Inside Panel 2

And the whole thing







As you can see, I got a bit carried away with the Lili of The Valley James The Bear - sorry, but he is just too cute to resist.  I made this card with my darling parents in mind (there is a family joke about Mummy Bear, Daddy Bear and Baby Bear) and James seemed perfect.  I've coloured him with Distress Inks and added some Art Institute gold glitter to his tinsel - this stuff is just so sparkly it almost hurts your eyes.  Papers are from a vintage Papermania pad.  I've had these years and love them so am a little sad that I am now coming to the end of the nicest ones.  And of course I had to use my fabulous loop edged Nestabilities for the matting.  The sentiments are both Lili of The Valley too from the new circular collection but, as you can see, I had to slightly doctor one of them!

My thanks to you all for your support during my first year on the Totally Gorjuss Design Team and for all your stunning entries in our challenges.  You are all winners in my eyes.

Looking forward to seeing what you create for your special someone and I hope you have a super Christmas and a stonking New Year.  See you all in January for the 2011 challenges!

Hugs, Sxx
