First Gorjuss Card - Cats

Yesterday my Gorjuss Girls stamps arrived! I didn't do the first pre-order due to lack of money :), but when a few extra full sets went on sale at the weekend I snapped one up. They are maybe a little smaller than I was thinking but, as everyone has said who has bought them, they colour like a dream.

Karen from Sugar Nellie has issued a challenge on Split Coast Stampers to make a card using only part of the image, adding some verse or poetry and sending it to a friend. So this card is for our dear friends who until this year were "owned" by Rusty and Jessica. Rusty was a very old gentleman and his loss was not unexpected, but when Jessica was diagnosed with diabetes and swiftly went downhill it was a shock.

Foxy and the two cats are coloured with watercolour pencils. The peom is by Eleanor Farjeon, although not a cat person I've always loved this :). There's some decorative stitching on the cardstock and the flowers are by Hero Arts. The papers are from the Stamp Attic.

The next week is very hectic for me, I hope to find some more time to play with my lovely new stamps :)
