Gorjuss gift for a friend !


I have made very many friends on the web , and i feel very lucky indeed to have ones that are so lovely. Yesterday i recieved a parcel crammed full of ribbons , nestibilities , blooms and a basic grey pad too ! i recieved this from my friend Steph - she doesnt have a blog unfortunatly... Steph often does this , she sends me a little parcel every now and then . Well yesterday i also recieved the wonderful Gorjuss stamps from sugar nellie and i decided it was about time my friend got a thank you for all the wonderful things she does, not just for me but for others too...

I had a little mdf box sitting on the side , looking very plain unaltered ....
I couldnt resist !

So Miss Stephanie this ones for you xxxxxxx


I used some of the wonderful stash in her parcel ..



The little fairy was made from fimo and i made it to match the Gorjuss stamp.
Her wings are blooms !



The turqoise stripy ribbon was the inspiration for the gorjuss girls tights - i love that ribbon !
Before i covered the mdf box , i primed the sides with white acylic and then used light green on the sides . I measured the sides and decreased it by a 1/2 cm for the paper panels.



Thank you so much Steph my parcel was just for of the most wonderful goodies ! xx

Gift card !


I thought this card would be fab for a teenager , i love making gift cards! The image is the new Holly and Madison download by Lou , available at charmed cards here .

I will have to put it in a bigger envelope mind and maybe hand deliver it or prehaps send it in a card box ... i think i might do a few of these for my daughters friends birthday and attach some lipgloss to it instead ! a small sticky fixer at the back and it stays on until the recipient takes it off !


Hmmmmmm calvin mouse , dont be getting any ideas mister !



I doubt it Calvin mouse - shes one of lou's downloads - abit of a high maintance girl i think..
I mean , those look like expensive ugg boots shes wearing and im sure i saw a Ted Baker label on her bag as i was colouring it ... i ve heard too that downloads dont go out with mice calvin ....sorry ..

thats not love butterflies ,,,,, thats that dodgy cheese you had last night ya twit !!!!
go play with your puppy calvin ..... lol dogs are less hassle than girls ! Oh and try and think of a name for your puppy please ... you cant keep calling it dog ya know !
