Totally Gorjuss 30 Round and Round!

Hi everyone. Hopefully Mr Blogger will post this for me at 8am as I need to go to work this morning. I must apologise for the quality of this photo as I had to make my DT card for Totally Gorjuss and take the photo on Friday evening.

I had been hoping to make a card in the morning but my fourteen and a half year old Cocker Spaniel was not very good. She hasn't been that good for a while and of course we've been postponing the inevitable! She barked for about half the morning and nothing seemed to help. Eventually she went to sleep for a while but woke up again just before my daughter set off with my other daughter's dog. They were coming back from their holidays and picking up Missy at Aberdeen. Just after they left she suddenly threw up on the doormat. Lovely! I only had time to throw the mat outside and go to work. When I came home she didn't even wake up. When my husband phoned from work he said to phone the vet and see when she could go in. They said she could go in first thing tomorrow so he will take her before work. I can't go with her because the first appointment is 9am and that's when I start work. She's going on what my son calls "the one way ticket!" Sound callous but all three of them are really fond of her. We have had her for over 14 years and she's been a great wee dog. She absolutely loves people and she was a pretty wee blue roan doggie. Now she is blind, deaf, shaky on her legs and just a bundle of bones. Still has a great appetite though LOL!

Sorry to go on! Now about the card. It was made rather quickly and I hope I haven't held Net up too much as she is the one who puts the challenge post together. This week we would like to see circles on your cards. You could make a round card, stamp your image on a round piece of card, use spotty paper or ribbon (I've got tiny little spots on my ribbon) the choice is yours.

I used :-
Image :- Princess Tilda.
DP :- DVWV Nana's Nursery.
Flowers :- Prima.
Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
Colouring :- Promarkers, Spica glitter gel pen and Sakura clear glitter gel pen and clear gel pen.
Jewels :- Basic Grey.
Raffia lace from Quixotic Paperie.
Nesties, stickles and clear gem brad.
As well as my DT card I'm going to enter some challenges :-
Sketch and Stash :- Sketch and neglected Basic Grey Jewels and new Prima flowers.
One Stitch at a Time :- Going Dotty.
Papertake Weekly :- Shiny, sparkly and special.
Stamp Something :- Celebrate something.
Just Magnolia :- One for the girls.
ABC :- Unused stash - Basic Grey jewels.
Well that's me for now. I hope you can find time to visit Totally Gorjuss and see what my talented teamies have made. If you've got a minute to let us know what you think we'd be delighted. As usual there will be a lovely prize for one lucky random winner. I'm looking forward to seeing how you interpret our challenge.
Enjoy your weekend,
Kat xx

  8. Oh Kat, so sorry to here this, but I know you will do the right and best thing.

    I have been a bad blogging pal this week and missed so many important posts from you, please forgive me, its all so hectic here, I thought if I kept off the pc I could get more done but my jobs are pilling up, the thing is as I bet you know when you start to decorate it makes other places in the house look so drab, so what started as a couple of jobs now its a long list.
    I had a few days helping my friend move house as well this week so looking at it I haven't really acheived much myself yet.

    Hope to speak to you soon, take care Kat

    ps...I got a bit carried away there and forgot what I came for...lol
