A bit of Inspiration…

Gorguss Girl
Gorjuss Girl

Sometimes, all you need is a little inspiration from your friends!   I was so inspired by the card I received from Heather that I just had color one of the Gorjuss Girls she sent along to me!!   Wow, I think I have a new addiction.  The GG stamps are so much fun to color!  I love when most of the areas to be highlighted are pretty obvious…it certainly helps me!
