Pay It Forward goodies

It seems like ages since I joined in a Pay It Forward initiative - I was lucky enough to be sent some gorgeous goodies by the very talented Wipso which I posted about here.

I had, in turn, to do my bit for two girlies who had joined in the fun. The first was my friend Karen, who is always coming up with clever ideas so I kinda cheated and sent her some handmade Gor Juss Girls magnetic bookmarks plus a few goodies for her to play with and make her own designs.

The second girlie was Ginger who I knew less about - except that she lives in Miami (envy!), is a scrapbooker and also publishes free WordArt on her blog. As scrapping is so big in the States it seemed a bit like coals to Newcastle if I sent scrapbooking stuff so my parcel included handmade magnetic bookmarks, some English Lavender products from The National Herb Centre and a pack of hand coloured notelets.

The backgrounds were stamped using a Hero Arts stamp called Old Letter Writing and topped with some 'old gold' coloured card with the images mounted on top. The images were stamped using a Joanne Sheen stamp called Letterbox, which is just so nostalgic, then coloured in using Aquamarkers. The post box itself was deliberately made to look faded and in need of a lick of paint BTW! :)

The parcel took forever to get there, at one point I truly wondered if it had gone walkabout - but then I got a lovely email from Ginger saying it had arrived. Phew! I hope it all spoke a bit of the UK!



  1. Theez ar clever.

    Mummy haz a notebook wiv Gorjuss gerl on the frunt, the pikcher ov her on the swing wiv a cat.

  2. Well that's coincidence Bob 'cos I forgot to say I also included one of those notebooks in each of Karen and Ginger's parcels. Oooer, have just spotted that you've updated yor blog - am off now for a peek :) Dix

  3. I just love my gorjuss girls bookmarks, so cute. You'll see the stamp on cards coming up as soon as I can get some space to make them!

  4. I really like this card. Nicely done!
