Sweet and Gorjuss

Morning ladies!
I hope you all had a great weekend, we didn't do much this weekend as Josh was pretty knackered after his week away, he really enjoyed himself though and came home with no broken bones ;0) .
And then, on Sunday my train card won Fave Five on Stamp with us !! whoop whoop!! That sure put a smile on my face let me tell you!! especially as I wasn't sure about it at first, unfortunately it didn't kick start the ol' mojo as I managed to start a couple of cards this weekend but only managed to finish one!
This is a card for my cousin who is 12 this week, the same age as Josh! and it is going all the way to New York :0) (note for nicki: contacts!! LOL!!)

I used the sketch from this weeks Just Magnolia blog, obviously I am not going to enter it ;0), I just thought it was such a nice layout, but as I don't have many Magnolia stamps I decided to use one of my slightly neglected Gorjuss Girls. Below are a couple of close ups of the buttons I put onto this card, really trying to use some of my stash instead of looking at it and saving it, he he!

I have used this lovely paper which is by DCWV from their "Sweet" pad as I thought it was cool enough for a (nearly) teenager and cute enough for a girly card IYKWIM!!! I layered it with Certainly Celery card and inked the edges in the same ink, which turned out to be a perfect match, yay! Girl coloured with pro-markers, thanks for the tips Sarah, how did I do ?

Lastly, here is the inside with another of those sweet Melon quarters,

Thanks everyone for your comments I really enjoy reading them,

Hope you have a lovely day,

Hugs Sarah-Jane xx
