Totally Gorjuss 242 - Pink and Green.

Good everyone, just a quick post from me today. I've made a really quick card for today's challenge at Totally Gorjuss. It's always handy to have a Sympathy card in your box and this is a lovely stamp for the purpose. It also works well for birthday or get well cards too.

I used :-
Image, sentiment and candy dots:- Stampin' Up!
Coloured with Stampin' Write markers.

I've got work this morning and then I'm going to get on with some knitting. I visited a fabulous wool shop in Aberdeen on Thursday and bought a couple of patterns and some wool. Well it would have been rude not to, wouldn't it? I had already been to John Lewis and bought some gorgeous Rowan wool and a knitting bag and needle roll. Lucky me these were all massively reduced in their sale.

I made another card similar to this one last night which I'll show you soon. I just heard that Catriona's mother-in-law had boken her wrist so I quickly made her a Get Well card with the same flower stamp.

Well I need to relax this afternoon as we're going to the theatre tonight. Again I hear you say! Two weeks ago we were at Dial M for Murder and this time we're going to see West Side Story. I love West Side Story. At school our PE teacher choreographed some dances for us using some of the music and we danced at the prize giving. The senior choir sang some of the songs too and I can still hear the alto line in my head!!

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up later.

Totally Gorjuss 241 Flower Power.

Good morning everyone. Saturday already and time for a new challenge at Totally Gorjuss. And what an easy theme we have for you this week. It's Flower Power and I know how you  all love your flowers.

I used :-
Image :- Stampin' Up!
Sentiment :-  Rubber Stampede.
Butterflies :- Stampin' Up! punch.
Pearls :- Hobby House.

This is the card I made for my boss to send to her aunt for her Golden Wedding anniversary. She loved it and so did her aunt. I'm always relieved when I make a card for someone else and they like it!

I thought I had time to write a quick post yesterday before work. But..........then I reallised that my photos were on my old laptop and I didn't have all my software installed on this one yet! My son came to visit last week for Father's day and couldn't resist playing with my new one. Which has sat in a corner for months as it has windows 8 which I found a bit of a mystery and it refused to let me use gmail. So now he's made it usable for me. So there was nothing for it but use the old laptop to add the photo. But...........last night was our WRI car treasure hunt and by the time I got home (late) my internet was playing up! So here I am early this morning writing this on my new laptop after adding the pic on my old one. Memo to self - get a memory stick today!

So I'd best go now cos I've got work as usual. Thanks for looking and I'll try to catch up later. Didn't have much time to see what my favourite bloggers were up to last week as I had a busy week....again!

Totally Gorjuss 239 - Embossing.

Hi everyone, isn't it nice to be Saturday again and have a chance to have some time to yourself. I hope. I have to work this morning as usual. I feel as if I've never been off work. My lovely freedom is just a memory!

This week at Totally Gorjusswe'd like to see some embossing on your card. We're sponsored by Which Craft UK who are offering £20 to spend on card blanks.

I've been having a spell of making Golden Wedding cards just now. This is the one I made for my lovely brother and sister-in-law who celebrated their anniversary yesterday. I'll show you the other two some other time.

I used :-
Sentiment :- Rubber Stampede.
Embossing folder :- Couture Creations.
Flowers :- EK Success punches.
Butterflies :- Stampin' Up!
Lace :- Ribbon Girl.
Pearls :- Hobby House.

I've been knitting a summer top in the gorgeous Debbie Bliss luxury silk print double knitting. The colours are lovely and it's a chevron pattern which suits the yarn perfectly. I never sew up things quickly, in fact I still have an Aran cardigan to sew up which I finished knitting weeks ago! But this time I'm dying to see my top finished so I think I'll sew it up this afternoon. I'll let you see it when it's finished.

Anyway thanks for looking. Catch you all later.
