A Gorjuss Girl Amore!

 

So, this card is another try at the Sugarbowl Challenge!   Nope, didn’t win last time.  😦    But, maybe this time!    I’ll keep trying.    The challenge is to follow this awesome Sketch and to include some distressing.

 

I flipped the Sketch for my card  …

 

The DP is from the Basic Grey Sugar Rush collection, now in stock at 7 Kids College Fund.   I used Smooch paint in the color pumpkin to highlight the tiny hearts on her dress & boots and the one in her hair.   My distressing is done with Tim Holtz Distress ink in fired brick ~ I also used the Spellbinders Mega Nestabilites Large Deckled Rectangles for the background shape of the main image.

Speaking of Gojuss Girls, it was my twin granddaughters, Hailee & Jordynn’s seventh birthday this past weekend.   Since they LOVE the American Girl dolls, they spent the day at the American Girl Place in Chicago.   I had to share these pictures of their trip! 

Imagine the reactions of people seeing these two little cuties walking down Michigan Avenue (the Magic Mile) in downtown Chicago with their dolls and shopping bags!   🙂

 

 

 

 

Thanks for popping in today – Hope you’re having a great weekend!

I got this one, along with two others, right around Christmas time and sadly I’ve not inked them up yet. I really do love them so have to get busy. Your pics of your granddaughters are so cute. What a fun outing! I’ve been to the one in New York and L.A. Such a fun place to go! Still trying to figure out a trip to the north. I would love to have lunch and do some stampin’. Are you game?

    YOUR GRAND-DAUGHTERS ARE SO ADORABLE! I ENJOY SEEING SISTERS LIKE THIS AS I WAS BROUGHT UP AS AN ONLY CHILD. MY ONLY GRAND-DAUGHTER JUST TURNED 21, SO I DON’T HAVE ANY YOUNG ENOUGH TO WATCH GROW UP.
