Totally Gorjuss 75 Fluffy!

Good morning everyone. I hope it is a lovely day where you are. Here in North East Scotland we've been very lucky and had a few gorgeous days this week. Our neighbour is lambing just now and I love to see the lambs enjoying the sunshine. But I have to hold on very tightly to my hooligan Labradors. This is not easy as one is 29.5kg and the other is 30.7 so it's a lot to hang onto lol.

But on to my card. This week at Totally Gorjuss our challenge is "Fluffy." We'd like to see something fluffy in your card or project, so a little animal would be perfect.

I'm thinking about getting into Christmas mode to save getting stressed later in the year so I've made a "fluffy" Christmas card this week.

I used :-
Image :- LOTV.
DP :- Bo Bunny plus dotty Bazzill.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Sentiment & card candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Martha Stewart punches, Glamour Dust, jewels and velvet ric rac.

I used the lovely sketch from Sketch Saturday, silly me by the time I post this it's too late to enter there!
I'm entering the following challenges :-
Cards for Men :- Embossing.
Creative Inspirations Wednesday challenge :- Punches or dies.
Craft Your Days Away :- Spots & Stripes.

Hope you can join us this week. Our sponsor this week is Crafter's Companion and I'm sure I don't need to tell you what a great variety of products they have in their online store.

I must apologise for not being very good at blogging and visiting this week. I managed to get my DT work done and not a lot else. On Wednesday my laptop was pounced on by something called MS REMOVAL TOOL. I instantly suspected this was something dodgy as it claimed my laptop had 38 infections - viruses, trojan horses, worms, malware, spyware..... It was pretty scary but it's not long since my son downloaded some new antivirus software. This thing wouldn't let me do anything at all and kept saying my system was in danger etc. So I text Iain and he googled it and said it was a hoax. I shut down and rebooted in safe mode and checked out how to get rid of it. But then I was worried that anything that claimed to fix it was dodgy too. By Thursday it was still there. At night I checked out some more and decided to try a system reset. I'd already tried that with no success but read somewhere that you could reset to a specific point in time so I decided to try to reset to Tuesday evening. It worked and so far it hasn't shown its ugly head again. It was really scary, the messages etc were really worrying and if you get a scare like that it would be easy to believe it was really happening. I'm naturally suspicious I think and always wary about clicking on anything so I just wanted to warn you to be wary if anything like this turns up. The scariest thing was that I couldn't do anything at all and I didn't know if it just wanted to mess up my system or if it wanted to get something like bank or card details.

I'm off babysitting today so hopefully when the kids are in bed I can catch up with you all.

Enjoy your weekend. Thanks for looking and if you have a minute to leave me a comment I'd love to hear what you think.
