Totally Gorjuss 145 - Strings the Thing.

Good morning everyone, hope the weather's better today than it was yesterday! It was really wet for most of the day and then really nice in the late afternoon and evening. After work I'm going to visit a local flower festival and have my lunch - soup and sweet while I'm there. It's being held in the three local churches and my church, Cruden Old Parish church is doing lunches. The Congregational church in Cruden Bay is doing teas and coffees etc in the morning and St James Episcopal church is doing teas and coffees in the afternoon.   I think the flowers will be amazing in all three churches. I was speaking to one of the ladies from our church and they've been working on their displays since Thursday so I hope lots of people visit all the churches.

Since it's Saturday again it's time to join us at Totally Gorjuss we'd love to see lots of you joining us for our latest challenge which is "strings the thing." Now how easy is that? We're sponsored by Heather's Hobbie Haven with $10 for the winner to spend. Here's what I made.

I used :-
Sentiment :- Hero Arts.
Embossing folder :- Cuttlebug.
Large snowflake :- Spellbinders.
Snowflake edge punch :- Martha Stewart.
Distress Ink, Glamour Dust, gems and bakers twine.

This was really easy to make. My friend gave me a shot of her snowflake die and I cut out a few so you might see some more cards using it.

I'm entering the following challenges :-
Charisma :- Monochrome.
Stampin for the Weekend :- Monochrome.

Thanks for looking and I'll be round to see what you've all been doing later. Enjoy your weekend.


  1. What a lovely idea to spread the events round three churches, a perfect opportunity to see all the flowers as well as dine out.

    Another great Christmas card, you must be getting a nice collection of them now.

    Hope the weather stays good for you and you have a lovely weekend.
