Another Gorjuss Girl!

Hello Everyone,

Life is very busy for me at the moment but somehow, I am squeezing in time for a card or two. We are busy working on a few home improvement projects that we want to finish before the kids return to school in September. So...my house is turned upside down right now but I know our hard work will pay off in the end.

I finished putting the card together this evening and was really glad that everything came together rather quickly. My image (Little Goth Girl) is colored in different shades of purple and with just a touch of pink.

The base card was fashioned by using my largest Nestie's Curved Rectangle Die. I used the second largest curved rectangle die and cut out two pieces of scrap design paper, cut out equal size pieces for the quilt look and sewed them together. I ran the finished piece through my Cuttlebug to give the quilt a little texture.

My image is colored in with Copic Markers and the card is embellished with flowers, pearls and ribbon.

Now I have to rush off the computer and over-see what goes out on the curb for trash removal. I have a feeling that we aren't going to be too popular tomorrow morning because we have a lot of stuff to set on the curb. *lol*

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!


Below are a few pictures of our three season patio that we are in the process of converting into a den. At one time, we used our patio as a "catch-all" for stuff that we didn't want in the main part of our house. Before we laid the tile, our three season porch was busy but in a orderly fashion. We just piled everything back in temporarily to get the stuff off our back porch. Now that the tile has been laid, we have to sort through everything and decide what we will keep, sell, give away and throw away! Whew!!!
