Totally Gorjuss 189 - Happy Birthday.

Good morning everyone, hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. I'm just relieved to have a day and a half off before two weeks full time working!! My colleague is off to Rhodes this morning for two weeks. Lucky her. I'm definitely not looking forward to this next fortnight. The worst part is the boredom during the quiet times when I keep thinking about all the things I could be doing if I wasn't stuck in the Post Office!!

But enough of my moaning! It's time for another challenge at Totally Gorjuss. We have a theme you all like this week....Happy Birthday! Even better we have two sponsors, The Ribbon Girl and Whoopsi Daisy so you have two chances to win!

I've had to make a quick card this week, thanks LOTV, as I've been a bit busy. Last night was my WRI car treasure hunt so I had to buy raffle prizes, organise prizes and a gift voucher for the person who made up the treasure hunt. Not to mention baking. My friend has a nasty cold and chest infection and wasn't up to going so I did her baking too. I do love baking though so it wasn't a chore! We had a successful night even if we had fewer cars than normal and it was fun. My husband and I didn't fall out (we usually do) so that was a bonus! I was also out on Thursday evening to a concert by the well known Scottish singer Fiona Kennedy. She's a beautiful singer and the other singer with her was a very talented 13 year old boy from Aviemore called Ruairidh McDonald. It was a great evening and we really enjoyed it. Ruaridh sings a song about Lady the famous Osprey at the Loch of the Lowes near Dunkeld in Perthshire.  If you'd like to see Lady she has her own webcam where you can see her chick - her 50th. She's a very old girl, reckoned to be about 27 which is apparently very old for an Osprey.

Anyway enough waffle, here's my card.

It's very late on Friday evening so I'll come back later and tell you what I used.

Here I am again.

  2. No idea if you're going to get several half comments from me Kat because blogger keeps closing the box on me.

    Sounds like you have another very busy week, but at least you got time to make a very pretty floral card.
