Totally Gorjuss 61 For Someone Special.

Good afternoon everyone, sorry to be a bit late with my DT card for Totally Gorjuss. Last night I was trying to get my Christmas cards ready to post and I didn't get to bed till after 2pm. I made what I thought was the last three cards last night. Printed some more inserts, cut them to size and stuck them in the cards. Wrote the cards and put them into the right envelopes (with printed address labels) and hubby stuck on the self-adhesive stamps. Then when I was brushing my teeth this morning I remembered someone who gave me a card, who doesn't usually. So I had to pinch a card from someone I know I won't see until Monday!

So here's my DT card for Totally Gorjuss.

I used :-
Image & sentiment :- LOTV.
Snowflake & punched edge :- Martha Stewart.
Card candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Cuttlebug and Sizzix embossing plates.

Thanks to everyone who entered our last challenge, I enjoyed looking at all your snowy creations. You can find the winner over at Totally Gorjuss you'll also find lots of inspiration there for this challenge. This challenge will run until 7th January 2011 and we hope to see you for our new challenge on 8th January 2011. The lucky winner of this challenge will win a beautiful pack of Me and My Big Ideas paper if Net can bear to let it go lol!

I used the sketch over at Lili of the Valley so I'm going to enter that challenge.
Thanks for looking and I'm off now to make that last card plus maybe a couple of spares. I also need 5 special cards for my kids and grandkids and 4 more for the teenagers who work in the shop in the evenings and at the weekend.

Hope it's not too snowy where you are. It's horrible here. We've had lots of snow and it's drifted badly. Doesn't help that the snow landed on top of ice. Sounds like another shower just now. I've managed to get to work every day though I've had some scary journeys! Worst of it is the bosses don't appreciate it they just take you for granted! Don't know who has the worst job just now, P.O. counter staff or posties. Well in general the posties don't have to deal with people who expect you to stick on their stamps for them. I don't mind 1 or 2 but do I look like I want a furry tongue sticking on other people's stamps?! Not to mention complaining about the cost - well why don't they send gift vouchers? - and turning without even a thank you or goodbye. Sorry rant over! Actually these people are the same all year round and not just at Christmas.

I'll shut up now and get the last of my cards done. I've got a really nasty hack on my thumb  and it's very sore so hope I don't bleed on my cards. Mostly this is due to pups being in and out all the time they're awake and me not drying my hands properly. If I can find time I'll need to try to post some pics of them. They're 3 months old now and getting big and even more cheeky.
