Totally Gorjuss 203 - Traditional Christmas Colours.

Good morning everyone. First of all I must apologise for my lack of blogging and leaving comments this week. i have had no broadband or only a poor connection which doesn't let me online! I've managed to do my DT commenting using my iPad but it's not ideal. 

This week at Totally Gorjuss our challenge is "Traditional Christmas Colours."

Here's what I made.

I used :-
Image, sentiment and DP :- LOTV.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
Glamour Dust.

I'm going to quit while I'm ahead here. I've been hanging on the phone to my broadband supplier for 30 minutes and still no reply just the usual waffle about someone will answer as soon as possible. Really?!!!!!!!!!!

By the way we've got a DT call at Totally Gorjuss so if you'd like to join us just nip over there for more details.

Totally Gorjuss 202 - Dotty.

Good morning everyone. Doesn't seem long since last Saturday. Must have been a busy week lol! I haven't had much time for crafting or blogging. Doesn't help when my internet connection has been rubbish this week! Doesn't help that I've been obsessed with crocheting either.

Yes I know it's afternoon now but for some reason in spite of the fact I scheduled this post for 8.15am Mr Blogger decided to schedule it for 10.16pm? Thanks again Mr Blogger. For nothing!!

Well this week at Totally Gorjuss our theme is "Dotty." I think I may be going loopy here. Last week I was convinced the theme was spots and stripes instead of just stripes. This week I managed to use the wrong side of my DP and ended up with a stripey card. So a quick card later I managed to make this one!

I used :-
Image and Sentiment :- LOTV.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Gems :- Hobby House.
Snowflakes :- Martha Stewart punch and  another small punch.
Glamour Dust and Washi Tape.

Hope you can join us this week cos we're sponsored by Heather's Hobbie Haven and The Ribbon Girl. Isn't that great? That means you have two chances to win. So what you waiting for? See you over there.

Well I have to work this morning so I'll see you all later. Have a lovely weekend.

Totally Gorjuss Challenge 201 - Stripes.

Good morning everyone. Is it just me or did anyone else have a really quick week? Mine disappeared very quickly! Only another week and then my colleague will be on holiday for two week. Bet that time doesn't pass quickly!!

But since it's Saturday it's time for another challenge at Totally Gorjuss. This week we'd like to see stripes on your work. As you might be able to tell from my card I got it into my head the challenge was spots and stripes. Oops, silly me! Still there are some stripes on it. As you can see I'm still in CAS mode.

I used :-
Image and Sentiment :- LOTV.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Snowflake :- Martha Stewart punch.
Washi Tape :- Fantastic Ribbons.
Card Candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Glamour Dust.

I found a challenge :- Christmas Stampin' All Year Long. :- Cute and Cuddly Christmas.

I've been a very bad blogger this week so I can only apologise for my lack of commenting. Hope things are better this week.

So thanks for looking and the lovely comments you leave. I'll catch up later after work.

Thought I'd do another Wedding card.......

since I had stamped two images in case I messed up one of them! This one is just very quick and simple.

I used :-
Image :- LOTV.
Sentiment :- Stampin' Up!
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Gems :- Hobby House.
Glamour Dust.

This is one of my favourite images for wedding cards!

I'd best go now and see if I can make my DT card for Saturday. I have to go out to a meeting tonight and I've not achieved anything so far!

Thanks for looking and I hope you can find a minute to leave a comment so I can come and visit you too.

For the Newlyweds.

I've just sneaked on here when I should be hoovering and dusting. My dogs are casting so it's not pretty. Two big black Labradors have a lot of hair to cast!!

Anyway I should have done this last night but it was a bit late so I left it till now. I showed you a tag the other day that I made for a wedding present. Now I'd like to show you the card I made for the couple. This time I've used colours that might or might not be their colour combo. The invitation had some pearls on it a similar colour to the flower centres so I thought it would be nice to use that colour in my congratulations card.

I used :-
Image and DP :- LOTV.
Sentiment :- Stampin' Up!
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
Glamour Dust.

Well my internet connection isn't brilliant this morning so I'd best go and do something useful (!) now.

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up later.

Just a tag.

Hi, if there's anyone out there! Visitors seem to be a bit few and far between here so I won't rabbit on!

We were invited to a wedding reception next Saturday. We can't go but obviously we still wanted to give the happy couple a present. I couldn't get any wedding paper so I bought some gorgeous flowery paper. The gift tags were spotty so I decided to make one to match the paper.

I used :-
Image :- Stampin' Up!
Colouring :- Stampin' Write markers.
Tag cut with a Sizzix die.
Ribbon from stash.

I've still to make a congratulations card for them. Best do that now.

Thanks to anyone who looked and even more thanks if you had time to leave a comment.
