Galivanting with the Clan! Gorjuss Gift and Awards

This is a scheduled post today as you are reading this I am currently gallivanting at the SECC meeting up with Gayle , Kath , Lorraine who is demo-ing for Fiskars and Allison The Clan bloggers lol god help the SECC that's all I can say us girls can spend for Scotland and we will be. Wooohooo! Firstly I have been given these fab awards by the lovely Sandra thank you Sandra for thinking of me. Sandras blog is fab if you you have visited her then where you been!

I was playing about with my brayer that I bought when off the island last week from Craftology fab for Penny black goodies and H2Os prices are fabaroonie. I still need practice with the brayer but it's getting there. I love this card can i tell you that it looks better in real life i forgot to take a picci earlier today when the sun was shining. I will take a better one again for you to see it properly. This picci will have to do for now. Isn't she just gorjuss sitting by the pond watching her own reflection. I have used a mixture of See d stamps again to make the background. I have torn the edges of the paper so i would like to enter it for this weeks challenge on Spoonfull of Sugar

Stamp - Gorjuss girl by Sugar Nellie
Medium - Watercoloured using Lyra crayons
Papers - Anna Griffin
Ribbon from stash

The second is not a card it is a jotter from Tescos that i have covered and this week on PTW is Pink, Orange & Brown -Hot chocolate! Love this papers by Anna Griffin it fits the bill perfectly too. Another Gorjuss girl water coloured with Lyra crayons and pearl paints for some shimmer. this is a present for Lorraine but she doesn't know, well actually by this time she will have it lol.

These are both wonderful cards but I think my favourite has to be the little girl by the pond. The reflection effect has been done wonderfully. Best wishes. Kym xxx
