Totally Gorjuss 213 - Anything Goes with Santa.

.Good morning everyone. I'm so pleased to be online easily! It's Friday just now so I'm not panicking at the last minute in the evening! Just lately I've been using a mixture of laptop and iPad but this week my iPad has 
been in the huff and won't get my emails or let me online! So I'm taking the chance to write this just now in the middle of the dreaded housework. I would have been happy to add the photo on the laptop and do the rest on the iPad. It's probably just me but when I add a photo on the iPad it looks fine but when I press publish the photo is on sideways!!

Anyway enough waffle! Our challenge at Totally Gorjuss is "Anything Goes with Santa." That should be easy now, shouldn't it? After all it is nearly Christmas! We're sponsored by The Hobby House and I'm sure you can find something in their store to spend your winnings on!

Look at the easy card I made.

I used :-
Image and sentiment :- Stampin' Up!
Washi tape :- Stampin' Up!
Gems :- Hobby House.

It was so quick and easy that  made another one with different paper and tape.

I've really been making an effort to get my cards made this week. Next week I'm out for two Christmas meals. Monday with the Guild and Wednesday with the WRI so I'd best keep on and get the cards done. Then I've only got to print the address labels, write the cards, put them in the envelopes, stick on the stamps and post them. Why are we girls lucky enough to be in charge of Christmas? Might get hubby roped in to do the stamps and envelopes.

Sorry I haven't been around or done much visiting. When this mobile broadband dongle thingy works it works really well, unfortunately sometimes the 3G signal isn't strong enough to let me online even though I'm supposedly connected. So I've given in and arranged for normal wi-fi broadband but I won't have it until the 16th, I hope!! I phoned about it on the 1st. Don't know why they have to take so long. When my phone was cut off earlier last month, their mistake since I only cancelled the broadband I had to wait a full two weeks to be reconnected and very helpfully with a new number. How inconvenient is that!!?

Anyway I'll catch up later after work. Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Thanks for looking and if you can spare a minute to leave a comment I'd be really happy. I know everyone's very busy just now but it's nice to know someone's looked at my post even if they don't like my card.

  4. Hi Kat, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  5. love your traditional santa image, and a fabulous festive card you have created with him. Still having problems with the internet here, despite getting fibre optic connection. Sometimes it's fine, other days it's like being on the old fashioned dial up and you have to wait 5 mins every time you press a button! hope things improve for you after the 16th.
    hugs, annie x
