A gorjuss girl for my gorjuss mum!!

Stamp-  Sugar nellie poppy gorjuss girl.

Morning peeps!!
I hope you are all having a fab thursday!! I am off to work in a bit but I had 5 mins so I thought I would share the card I was making for my very special mum yesterday. My mum loves poppies (....and dragons too...but I felt girly!!) so I decided to ink up my poppy gorjuss girl for the first time (yes...she has been in the stroke only box for a while but I really wanted to use her for mum) Its her birthday on sunday so I am ready on time!!!

I chose a selection of papers from Funky Hands Happy Happy birthday papercraft factory, these ones are from the Birthday Gal colourway and I love them. 
Then I coloured my gorjuss girl up in the same colours as the papers!! I love doing that!! I also stamped a little bit of magnolia swirl around the edges of her for a bit more yumminess!!!

I have been asked by a couple of people where I buy my ribbon to match my images....the answer is that I don't buy coloured ribbon much anymore. I buy lots of white satin ribbon and to make it match I just colour it with one of the promarkers I have used in the image I am using on that card!!! I just lay it out on my desk and swipe the chubby nib of my promarker along it, if I want it a touch darker I do it twice.It makes things sooooo much easier for matching ribbon up so I hope that answers the question peeps xxxxx

So, onto my squidgy little mo!! his face is still "funny" as he describes it!! He is still his happy jolly self, just a bit tired so hopefully its just a bit of a virusy reaction!!

Have a gorjuss day peeps!!
Huge hugs Lou xxxx
