Totally gorjuss dt

Hi blog hoppers, its time again for Totally gorjuss challenge, as i am sure you know by now there is always something really yummy for the winner so i hope you would consider joining us.  this week its a REAL challenge, if you are anything like me.  "BOYS".  I'm using another one of Mo's digi images for the challenge this week and this gorjuss image is available HERE.  and the stamps name is 'Buds"

I think this is just adorable, but i have major panic attacks when creating Boy cards, i am one of those more girls and boy cards need less embellishing, or should i say there isnt much besides for buttons and a very few other things to embellish boy cards with.

I was so excited, as this week i managed to get my hands on a second hand seing machine for R450, i thought GREAT! now i can stitch on my cards, yeah RIGHT! i must have the worst luck, i switched the thing on in preparation and two mins later there was a big bang and Lots of smoke.  So the machine went up in smoke.  Well off i went to Elna today and we will see if it can be repaired.  None the less i managed to hand stitch on the two sides of my card and select palces on the tag, i added some hessian, and a few buttons, another easel card, love these cards they always look so swathe.

Have a great weekend girls, will be crafting a lot in the nexr few days got lots to catch up on and my kids will be home for holidays while we are having the world cup in SA.
