Foxy Gorjuss Papertake Weekly xx

She IS foxy gorjuss :))

The challenge over at Papertake Weekly this week is a colour challenge and it is Hot Chocolate (pink and orange for the 'hot' and brown for the 'chocolate').

I kept the layout fairly simple so that the elements stood out.

The image was coloured with my fabbylicious PMs and highlighted with a sprinkling of Glamour Dust. The papers are both PP and those beautiful blooms are of course from the ever wonderful Poppicrafts, as are the 2 small brads in the centre of the top flowers.

You can see them better here - I thought they went well with the paper

Well I have been away from the land of blog for what seems like agaes - even though it is only 6 days, but it has been a fairly mad week. My boss was taken into hozzie with suspected meningitus and I was a little concerned as even though my understanding is that there are various strains, I had been sitting 3 feet away from him during our weekly team meeting the day before - oooo errr missus!!!. It isn't meningitus and they still don't know what it is.

Then I had all the prep to do cos it is card club week this week. We had the Ellesmere Port group last night and I was delighted to see my blog bud Caryn there. It was lovely to meet ya chick xxxx

So things are back to normal again now :))x.
Thank you for the lovely e-mails asking if I had dropped off the planet or if I was poorly sicko xxxxx I will be back later with summut cardy, but I'm just off to the dentist. I need to go and look for me courage first, cos it seems to have cleared off today lol xxx

Ohh I am such a great big mardy wussy baby!!

Hi Dawny, I had a fab time last night and met a lovely bunch of ladies. Aunty Jean is a wee pet isn't she? I showed my friend Rajinder the cards we made and she thought the were gorgeous - which they are - so she'll hopefully come along with me next time too. Was great to meet you IRL and am looking forward to the next one.

Oh, and your card is very Gorjuss indeed - those stamps are amazing.
