Totally Gorjuss Challenge 207 - Spooky.

Sorry no time to chat but this is my card for this week's challenge at Totally Gorjuss. It's taken all day to achieve this so since it's very late on Friday evening I'm just going to add the pic and come back on Saturday afternoon to add the details!

Thanks for looking and see you all later I hope!

Totally Gorjuss 206 - String.

Good morning everyone. I'll have to make this brief as I'm still having connection problems. I'm going to have to phone about this again. Seems such a waste of time after the last time. I've spent ages trying to write this on Friday morning and at last I seem to have found a spot where I can do it. I could get on my blog but when I tried to get to the page where you write a new post it wouldn't load so fingers crossed it's going to work this time. I'm not optimistic about adding a photo though as that seems to be the worst thing to do!!

At Totally Gorjuss this week our theme is "string." Easy isn't it? Even I can manage that! We're sponsored by Heather's Hobbie Haven this week so I hope you can join us.

I used:-
Image and sentiment :- LOTV.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Bakers' Twine :- Ribbon Girl.
Snowflake :- Martha Stewart punch.
Gems :- Hobby House.
Card Candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Glamour Dust.

Well I'm going to quit while I'm ahead here since I've been faffing about for about an hour and a half trying to write this and my post on the DT blog. I even have a photo on my phone in case I needed to write the posts with my iPad!

I'll be around to see what everyone's up to after work this afternoon.

Thanks for looking and I really appreciate it when you have time to leave me a comment.

Look what I made.......!!!!

While I've been struggling to get online I've still been busy. I haven't done a lot of crocheting for quite a while but I became "hooked" (sorry) again recently after a knit and crochet group started locally. I've made a few little crochet jackets to send to Malawi and this cosy blanket. I'll show you the jackets another day if my broadband allows! Speaking of broadband I started this last night (Tuesday) but I couldn't download the picture so I'm trying again now!

Success at last, though it did take a few tries before I got it downloaded. Maybe I'll go and catch up with some DT work if I can now.

Thanks for looking. My next blanket is done in grannie squares. If I can give it up though cos I'm using colours I really like!

Totally Gorjuss 205 - Things with Wings.

Good morning everyone. Hopefully I'll be on time with my post this week! I'm scheduling it while I'm at my daughter's house where I have a good enough signal to actually get online!

Our theme at Totally Gorjuss this week is "Things with Wings."

Here's what I made.

I used :--
Image and sentiment :- LOTV.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
I added a little glitter to the halos and stars with a Sakura clear glitter gel pen.

Nice and CAS, just the way I like my cards just now. Might make more like this.

Thanks for looking. Catch up with you all this afternoon after work. I hope!

Totally Gorjuss 204 - Anything Goes plus Stars.

Hello there. I'm a bit late with my post for Totally Gorjuss. I don't think I've ever been as late as this but my broadband has been a complete nightmare.  In the last few weeks it has gone from being really bad to completely impossible. Most evenings I've been unable to get online and even in the morning I can't get online either. Since I was working full time for the last two weeks I haven't seen much online at all. Luckily I can use my iPad at lunchtime at work as the 3G signal is better there than it is at home so at least I've been able to keep up with my DT commenting. Unfortunately I haven't seen much at all of my favourite blogs and I'm sure anyone who visits me must think I've given up blogging!

I'm at my daughter's for 4 days to do the school run with Poppy and pick up Oliver from nursery so now I can get online. I have tried my broadband helpline but after 30 mins and not getting through, 45 minutes another day and being told to run 3 speed tests over 24 hours and get back to them and to crown it all nearly an hour the next day and getting someone who obviously didn't know anything!!!!!!!!!!! I'm sure you can imagine how I reacted when he said "everything looks fine from here."

But enough of my woes, here's the card I should have blogged on Saturday.

I used:-
Image:- Oh dear!!! I've forgotten, I can picture the packaging so maybe I'll go and have a look at some online shops to see if I can find it. Phew I was right when I thought it was from Woodware, I just didn't want to say it was and then find I'd got it wrong lol!
Just stamped very simply with SU markers and some sparkle added to the stars.

I'm going to quit while I'm ahead here and get back to my crochet. I must show you what I've been making. Probably tomorrow! 

I'm off to check my camera to make sure I've got a photo of next weeks Totally Gorjuss card so I can schedule next Saturday's post while I'm here with decent Internet access.

Thanks for looking. I hope somebody visits me in spite of me being such a bad blogger recently.
