I made my first Gorjuss Girl card!

How's every one's day going so far?

Well, I kind of have a rough morning. Some lady called my cell phone like 20 times plus 5 or 6 voicemail messages this morning looking for her friend. I don't pick up unknown calls or numbers I don't recognize. But I finally picked up after a few times and politely told her in Chinese (she spoke Chinese) that she dialed the wrong number. Well, guess what? She dialed my number a few more times and left messages on my phone. I got upset and picked up the call and told her again in English this time that she dialed the wrong number and to please not call this my number again. You would think that was the end of it. No! She called again and left more messages! I picked it up again and told her in Chinese (since she spoke in Chinese) that she dialed the wrong number! She has the nerve to ask me if this is my phone! Ha! I told her, "if this is not my phone, would you be talking to me?" She finally stopped calling. (sigh). She probably think I was crazy! hehe I usually have patience but 20+ times and when I already told her she dialed the wrong number already? Anyway...

I finally made my first Gorjuss Girls card! Yay! I had my eyes on them since I first saw them in blogland. I finally got myself some a couple of weeks ago. :) This is a present to myself! A birthday present! Oh, I am having a little candy on my birthday so be on the look out for that! It's not much but more goodies for one lucky person to play. hehe

This is my card for the Sugar Bowl challenge. It's my first time playing too. :) The challenge is to follow the sketch and include paper piecing. I pieced her dress. I totally understand why so many people like Sugar Nellie now! They are so fun to color!

Card Details:
Stamps: Gorjuss Girl
Paper: Basic Grey, Recollection
Ink: Copic, Memento, Cat's Eyes
Embellishment: heart charm, ribbon, gem brads, Prima flowers
Tools/Others: Embossing folder, border punch

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I can see why you wanted one (or some?) of these stamps. You've dressed her perfectly and I love the layout and papers.

Beautiful coloring job!! Well I hope that was the last of the phone lady! I would not have been that polite! ;0)

I am jealous! I've wanted one of these for a while now as well!!!

I do not have the patience you do. I think I would have yelled at that woman after like the third call.. I would never have made it to 20!!!! That is crazy though, I don't think you should be worried that she might think you're crazy, sounds like she is the crazy one!
