Totally Gorjuss 215 - Eek Quick Christmas Card.

Well good morning everyone. So much for being able to get online and post last week's card late on Monday. It's now Thursday evening but at least I'm early for this week's challenge!

Famous last words about having broadband by now! I think I misunderstood when I ordered it and the guy on the phone said the 16th. My welcome letter mentioned the 16th and the 23rd. Needless to say I've been too busy to phone and find out what's happening but I haven't been sent a router yet.

Hopefully by the time this posts I'll know better what's happening.

Our challenge this week at Totally Gorjuss is to make a quick Christmas card. We have two sponsors this week, The Ribbon Girl and Heather's Hobbie Haven so you have two chances to win.

So here's my super-quick card.

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

I love that Santa. I think he looks like you imagine Santa should look!

I only have another one day to work before Christmas. But I don't think it'll be a pleasant one somehow. This year the DWP aren't paying out pensions and allowances very early so it means that as well as all my usual Monday customers I'll have Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday customers too. I've already had two nightmare Mondays with parcels and cards! Never mind I don't have to work on Tuesday as we close at 12,.30 and I usually start at 2pm.

Are you all organised for Christmas? I'm not sure I am! I got my last (I hope) card made on Thursday evening - for my husband!!

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up later after work if I can.

  1. What a lovely traditional Santa Kat, love your card and the simplicity really makes him pop.

    Hope your internet issues get sorted for you soon, can totally understand as like you we are pretty remote and the internet not as reliable as we would like despite changing routers and so on.
