Sketch Saturday (Gorjuss Mum)

Good Afternoon!!
Sorry this post is a bit late... I've been catching up on a bit of housework this morning... 
shhhh... I know crafting is more important, but I don't think the craft fairy noticed! ;)

This week at Sketch Saturday the fabulous Jo has provided us with yet another SUPER DOOPER sketch...
(when doesn't she?)

I decided to use it to make one of my 2 needed mothers day cards... (you'll see the other next week ;))


I always find that when my mojo is a bit 'off' I can give it a little boost by colouring up a gorjuss girl...
I do still have a BIG place in my heart for these...

She's coloured with Promarkers and pencils...
this sketch is great for using up scraps of paper... so thats 3 bits used out of my thousands of bits...lol!
think they are all either MME or Echo park
I've hand drawn a panel on Kraft to incorporate the scallops needed for the sketch...
The image is mounted on a nestie shape which I've coloured with a promarker, and then stamped a few little blooms on to it... (not sure where the stamp came from)
the 'you're the best' is the words from a whimsy stamp...
I've hand cut the 'MUM'
risson, flowers buttons etc... from stash...

Gorgeous card. Loooove the hand cut panel/scallops - love the whimsy look of it. Looks much better than any punched edge!

Gorgeous Paula! Though The crafty fairy may get a bit miffed if you make a habit of putting housework before crafting! ;)
