Friday Sketchers #89

Well the Friday Sketcher's crew have another fabulous sketch to play along with. I took the opportunity to ink up one of my sadly neglected Gorjuss Girl stamps. The colour combo was dictated by the striped DP from Kaiser.
I found it really hard to get motivated to create this weekend - I think I needed some down time after last week! A great sketch was just the medicine I needed to get back to it! And guess what - the last minute rush to send DH off to the east coast of America resulting in his forgetting to take any jumpers/sweaters with him - hmmmmmm - I think he may be hitting the malls when he can - LOL.
Wishing you all a truly WONDERFUL week ahead!!!

I never thought orange could look so beautiful! Love that border punch...can you bring it along next Monday for a play?! Chuckling about forgetting the jumpers...mine is off to east coast USA this week too and is already stressing about how cold it's going to be. We don't really know what winter is in Melbourne do we?!

Oh dear, Richard is going to have to go shopping... it's freezing back east! I keep forgetting you're in the heat of summer. We got to the low 8o's today (about 28 C), so it felt like summer...but will (thankfully) cool down again starting tomorrow. I'm not ready to stop enjoying the bit of winter we're getting here in So Cal!

Anyhoooooo, I love your orange and navy card. Those gorjuss girls are too sweet, and of course you've colored her up so well!
