Just Gorjuss...

Hi all, fed up listening to the news saying London is having a heat wave this weekend, its not nice here today very dull and dreary looking. Raining on and off too, ooohh and just as I write this the sun comes out!
Ive been getting my new magnolia summer stamp club inked up today so Im going to get the little kids to bed soon and go and do some colouring in. This is the first time Ive ordered the stamp club, I dithered for some time deciding if I was going to order it but finally caved the week before time ran out. Can I say I love my maggies but Im not too sure about this set, only time will tell how they work but at this moment I'm kinda struggling to get inspiration for cards with these designs.
Anyhoo onto my card for today, I've tried again to make a card using reds, I really struggle with this colour and I'm never really truly happy with the cards when Im finished but Im feeling this one is a bit of an improvement on my last few attempts.

Not sure what the papers are, found them in my scrap box, the lace is antique handmade lace from the little shop in Callander again, I've only got one little bit left so I think I need to go back and see if they have any more.

The flowers are woc and the little shabby chic bird was bought off ebay.

I love these gorjuss girls, I even have an iphone cover with one off them on it. I think Suzanne Woolcott's designare just stunning and she is an inspiration to many after what she has been through.

Right, well I'm off to do some colouring in while watching telly, maybe have a little glass of wine and just relax.
 Hope you all have a lovely evening too.
And I'll try to remember to get these last to cards onto ebay.

Love and hugs
