Dutch Dare & new stash

First of all, I need to apologise to all my blogging buddies out there, I've been very bad lately at visiting your blogs, I've discovered this very addictive game on facebook, which has taken up a lot of my time! Hoping to catch up with you all and your latest makes in the next day or two.

I've been meaning to make this style of card for a while now, saw it on my blogging buddy Rica's blog. When I saw the challenge on Dutch Dare this week, which is to decorate the inside of your card, I knew the one that fitted the brief!

Yes, you've guessed it, the Gorjuss girls just had to be inked again.... well I needed 3 similar images! The first image is Little Goth Girl. Base card made from 12 x 12 sheet of Bazzill, image coloured with my PMs, frames cut with Cricut, flowers made with SU & X-Cut flower punches, Papermania brads, backing paper is K & Co, one I've had for yonks.

Little Miss Attitude on this page, other deets as before. On the inside of the front page I used a section from the first 2 images, punched out with SU circle punch, mounted on scalloped circle shape.

The Little Miss Attitude panel drops down to reveal the third panel, Bear hug, decorated as previous panels, using backing paper from stash. There is a pocket on the back of the second panel in which to add a gift card, cash or a small gift. I added a section of Bear Hug as before and left an area blank for greeting to be added.

I am really pleased with how this has turned out, have got plans for more of these....

Look at these lil babies, had email from Angel Crafts to say they were back in stock, so without hesitation hopped on over there and placed my order on Thursday evening. Was really pleased when they dropped through the letter box yesterday morning. They arrived beautifully wrapped in pink tissue and a long length of ribbon which will no doubt end up on a card soon! Didn't get chance to ink them up yesterday as I went to the Southampton Papercraft show, The Range & Hobbycraft with my blogging buddy Stacey, it was great to catch up again, I ended up going to Range in Gosport to get a pack of that Chocolate Box cardstock LOL!!

Had better go and get dressed now.
