Looks to be a Gorjuss Christmas

So sorry to have to post and run again... what can I say? Things are just busy, busy, busy around here right now. Hope you understand. :)
Though I will say this... in general I am not a fan of sports games. I don't watch them, I don't participate in them, I have zero interest in them. So I am always beyond annoyed when they postpone my quality show time, like Glee night for baseball... grrrrrrrrrrrrr... ok, vent over. ;)
For today's card I altered Poppy Field Gorjuss Girl into a little winter girl. Which wasn't hard, I swear! Just draw a line a little above the hem of her dress and then a line down the middle to create a coat. I cut the ear muffs out of paper and covered them with white flocking then glued them to her head, drawing in the band after that. Easy peasy. :)
More 'old as the hills' paper scraps on this one, the embroidered looking santa scene has always been a favorite Daisy D's paper of mine and I use it sparingly, not letting any go to waste. ;)
Have a wonderful Wednesday my friends... if that is even possible since there will be no Glee... :(

Beautiful!!!!

Your cards are always SO creative! Oh and I'm mad too, they preempted Bones (my fave show) for BASEBALL. I hate, hate, hate baseball so it's like adding insult to injury.

Love the Gorjuss Girl and your always amazing altering! I would use that Santa paper sparingly, too!

While I'm sad there's no "Glee"--we have to root for Hawaii's hometown boy, Shane Victorino. Go Phillies!

Jennifer said...

Wow, I just read your comments and no Glee tonight. That is some sad news. I was looking forward to it too. Anyways, your card is amazing as usually.

Gabby said...

Uh oh...I feel a copy cat coming! YES...me! LOL! Love this GF! And on the topic of sports...GO YANKEES!!! The Phillies beat out my hometown Dodgers...so I'm pretty much decided of who I want to win! LOL! Sorry you'll miss Glee! :( Here's a glee-ful hug {{Amy}}!
