A Vintage Totally Gorjuss

For my earlier post today (House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge GDT) please click here or scroll down.

Well, it's a very wet Bank Holiday Monday which means that we haven't gone anywhere today.  We had a very lazy morning, had a Wii challenge (I think we were about equal on wins), and this afternoon Toad has been on the Wii Fit and watching Despicable Me while I had a little play.

It's been ages since I said hello to my old teamies at TOTALLY GORJUSS and joined in with a challenge so when I saw Net's super sketch this week I just knew I had to have a go.  And while I was at it I thought I would sneak a late entry to this week's SIMON SAYS STAMP challenge Use Your Favourite Tool - Cuttlebug, Epiphany and Inkssentials Blending Tool.


I told you I was heading into another brown phase!

Ingredients for this card are
Stamped Image  Lili Of The Valley
Medium  Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers  Melissa Frances Attic Treasures
Extras  Epiphany Round 14s
Sentiment  Wild Rose Studio

Oh well, that's Easter over for another year so it is back to work tomorrow.  It is going to feel strange going back, even after only four days.  I was confused by the days last Thursday so not sure how the morning will feel!

Hugs, Sxx

Hiya Squirrel,
Lovly vingate feel card, love it. The sweet image is delightful and those papers are lovely.
It has felt odd this Easter, this is my first Easter since leaving Playgroup, so it does feel odd for me.
Good luck back at work. Yak!

Great vintage look Squirrel. Love that sweet image. Thanks for joining us at TG this week.

I didn't have the day off today as we had the local holiday last week but the posties had the day off! People were driving me nuts saying "I didn't know you'd be open." As if we'd be shut 2 Mondays in a row grrrr...

Hope that the Easter Bunny was kind. This little darling is sweet and I like her vintagey (is that even a word?) look. I've been on a brown kick lately too. Trying to get some masculine/Dad's Day cards done for Operation Write Home. Hope that the morning didn't come to early and work wasn't to hectic!
