Just GORJUSS!


I love it when Friday comes...it is my all time FAVOURITE challenge - mind you I love them all, but the Twsited Sister one is very dear to me as this group of people have become like family to me on SCS. I love the connections that we can make with each other...and that is one of the plus' with this passion of ours - it can't help but connect you with people!!!
For this weeks Twisted Sister Challenge we were to to make a card with Plum, Pink and Grey, add some brads and use SC185.....I played along nicely until I realised that we have had our first 'cultural difference' PLUMS ARE NOT PURPLE!!! I have put one of our beautiful Australian plums next to my card so you can see the reason for the colour I used...THIS IS PLUM!!!! What's the story with this purple business! LOL!!!
I also went outside the guildlines and used pearls instead of brads - brads were just too CHUNKY and looking plain UGLY and that would never do with that GORGUSS girl!!
I packed up and went to bed at around 12:45am and was just arriving into the 'comfort zone' when I got a TEXT....my DD's are on their first sleepover and DD2 texted me asking me to ring as they were still awake and could not sleep...I rang and she said 'Oh, you're up' What a girl...she texted again this morning at 7am as she was awake and no-one else was!!! I guess we are in for tired girls this afternoon...and we all know what that means...ahhh!!!
Thank you for dropping by - please leave me a comment and give me your thoughts on PLUM - I gotta know!!! By the way, no plums were hurt in the taking of this photo LOL!
