A Gorjuss thank you...

Good morning friends!
Today is shaping up to be a beautiful one and I can't wait to make the most of it... I hope it's the same for you in your own little corner of the world. :)

So it has been ages since I had a new Gorjuss Girl to play with but when I saw that Sugar Nellie was going to have new GG images I had to jump on that pre-order. That was way back in February and because this time the stamps weren't being made by Sugar Nellie themselves there ended up being some setbacks and postponements on the manufacturers end. But finally at long last my order arrived last week and these new girls were well worth the wait!
There are six new rubber stamps and some clear acrylic sets... I ended up inking one of the new clear GGs up first. She is called The Owl and I think she is SO cute, I mean how can you resist that crazy little owl friend of hers? LOL
I paired her up with these great Twig papers from LYB because I thought the natural, woodsy look of them suited this pair of friends quite nicely. I even used some of it to paper piece her dress for a perfect match. I just love how this card turned out... there is something about the Gorjuss Girls, a kind of quiet shyness that is very different from most of my usual go-to stamps. I think that's why I love them so. :)

Alrighty, one more day off ahead of me and the possibilities seem almost endless... what to do, what to do... ;)

Later gators!
