A Happy Birthday "Gorgeous Girl" Easel Card!

Hi Everyone! I couldn't resist, I had to share a second Gorjuss Girl Easel Card with you! There's just something about playing with paper dolls no matter how old we get, isn't there? I'm definitely not an expert with my Copic Markers but I sure do enjoy playing with them. These little cards are a perfect way to use up those 6x6 paper pads we all have sitting around and the prints are just the right size for paper piecing and layering. I hope you'll give it a try!

I'm always so thankful for each of you! As always, I'd love to hear from you!

A "Gorjuss Girl" Easel Card!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! This year was very special for me, I was able to enjoy time with my mom, even though she's in the late stages of Alzheimers. I truly believe this was a holiday she will always remember. I took a few moments to print some pictures to remind her of our time together. A little ziplock bag with a few pictures meant the world to her.

If you're like me you're probably thinking about creating a holiday project! It's such a fun time of year to create! I'm hoping to start on something this week. In the meantime I thought I'd take a few minutes to share a project I made a few months ago. Aren't Gorjuss Girl stamps just adorable? I never get tired of creating cards with them!
I'd love to hear from you, if you have a question or would like to comment, please do! Thanks so much for stopping by!
