Totally Gorjuss 125 Swirly Whirly.

Good morning everyone, Saturday again and it only seems like 2 minutes since last Saturday!

This week at Totally Gorjuss our theme is "Swirly Whirly. Now that's easy isn't it? We're sponsored by Meyer Imports so don't forget to pop over and see what they've got to tempt you.

I've made a "thinking of you card" this week so I've kept it quite simple. I bought this lovely new image from Inkylicious at the SECC the other week. It stamps beautifully and I think I'll use it a lot. I swithered about buying some of their ink dusters and didn't buy them. Of course I realised as soon as I got home that I should have bought them so I had to order them. This is the first time I've used them so I'm quite pleased with how the image turned out. I stamped the image in Versamark and embossed it before adding colour with the ink dusters.

I used :-
Image :- Inkylicious.
Colouring :- various colours of inkpads.
Embossing :- Cuttlebug - Divine Swirls.
Swirls :- Cottage Cutz.
Sentiment :- Hero Arts.

I'm entering the following challenge this week ;-

Simon Says Stamp :- Anything goes.

I've had a bit of hassle with my broadband this week and had to phone the Post Office helpline. My router had to be re-set and I had a new password which I wrote down(!) Unfortunately I made a little mistake. It didn't affect my laptop but when I tried to use my ipad it wouldn't work. So back to the helpline again. The girl suggested different permutations of it in case I had got i's and 1's or 0's and O's mixed up. Still no luck so I had to phone again! Had to connect the ethernet cable again so it could be controlled by the girl on the helpline. As it turns out I had got all the letters and numerals correct but I'd managed to miss out one number grrr..... At least I was able to keep up with my DT commenting via my iphone or ipad till I could use my laptop again. Surely this week is going to be better? I've got a day off on Monday as it's a local holiday. But the following Monday is Easter Monday so we're working and the posties are off!

Well I'll catch up later today. My younger daughter is coming out to get her hair cut at the village hairdresser today so maybe we'll go for a coffee after that.

Thanks for looking and I really appreciate any comments you leave.


  1. How frustrating for you - glad it is all OK now

  2. Morning Kat

    We never realise how reliant we are on the internet until it goes AWAL, pleased it sorted now.

    Super resist stamping and very delicate colouring. I bought ink dusters a couple of months ago and wondered why I had put it off for so long, that are fabulous and sure you will be addicted as I now am.

    Have a good weekend.
