Hey hey! Do you also have the feeling that weekends are very short? They are gone before I know it! I hope you at least had a nice one. I enjoyed every single minute. :) On Friday I gought a new laptop and I put it to test this weekend. ;) So far it's looking good. It's definitely much faster than my old one.
My mum had her birthday in February and my dad bought her something she's been wanting for a while - Sizzix Big Shot starter set. And that gave the rest of us lots of other options for gifts as well (you know you can never have enough dies, embossing folders etc.). Ever since she got her new "toy", she's been hooked to her craft space. He he. The other day she did some more shopping and one of the things she bought was this adorable Gorjuss stamp which she kindly let me borrow so I could use this cutie on my card as well.
The image is pretty big/tall (taller than I anticipated), so I cut some of the books off. As usually I did the coloring with distress inks. Lace and yellow trim are from Webster's pages and flowers and other embellishments came from my stash. Papers are from Prima. Butterflies are an Inkadinkado stamp. I just coloured them with distress inks and cut them out with m scissors. The decorative oval is Spellbinders die and the corner is Whimsy die.
