Hello everybody. Hope you have had a lovely weekend. 
It's flown by hasn't it?!

I started this card on Friday and have just added the finishing touches (it's just been too nice to be indoors). It's my first Gorjuss stamp and I must admit I wasn't keen when they first appeared but, having had a jolly good look in real life, I took the plunge and actually think they are excellent value for money and stamp beautifully.
The papers are the lovely First Edition New Bloom (these have encouraged me to expand my colour repertoire and include purple!! This also meant shaking the dust from a bundle of antique purple seam binding!!) and I coloured her with Promarkers to compliment them. A couple of pearly flowers, a bow and a sentiment finishes it off!

I would like to enter the following challenges

The squirrel and the fox #48 - Use something spooled (ribbon)
Songbird #24 - Ribbon
Crafty Friends #7 - Inspired by a song (Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits)
One Stop Challenge # 234 - Summer colours (the colour of my petunias - Mauve)
Use it Tuesday #59 - Birthday (very old seam binding)

I snapped this little devil while photographing the card. We've had so much noise in the garden this afternoon. I think all the birds in Dorset have descended on my cherry tree and this little devil looks like he's eyeing up the next one!! They pinch all the low ones so I can't reach what's left!!

That's it from me for now. Have a lovely evening and see you very soon xx
