Phew

Hi again, back this time with a huge sigh of relief! I hate repeative work with a passion and had to get my daughters invites done, thankfully I didnt have many to do, but they are time consuming!

They are for her First Holy Communion, and I know that traditonally its all about the White Dress for little girls but I had to put colour on this, there is alot of white so I think they will be fine, actually they are fine! lol, I aint doing no more!!!!!!!! I am only showing a few as I couldnt get them all in a pictureThis is the front, I decided to go with a flap card, make more work lol, I used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch and the cuttlebugs swiss dots folder, I cut nesties and coloured this Gorjuss stamp by Sugarnellie with Promarkers and Copic Ciaos. I added some pebbles, primas and sheer ribbonThis is the inside, I have to add the info in but I have a cunning plan! I am going to let my daughter write those! hehehe

Isnt she just Gorjuss! This is another of the new Gorjuss Girls from Sugarnellie

Hi Joey,
Love all your new creations you have made whilst I havent been around. Your daughters egg looks fab, Oli did same to me told me the night before he needed it in. I had to do him a James bond water chase, dressed one of the eggs up in a tuxedo and popped them both on speed boats in a lake. Saw you new Sugar arrived just love those new Gorjuss stamps and great cards made with them. Wow your item for your new challenge blog is fabulous, will have to try and find the time to pop over and join in the fun.
