Totally Gorjuss 221 - Sunny Colours.

Good morning everyone. I don't know about you but it's been a terrible week here weather-wise. It's been rainy, windy and really cold too. People keep talking about snow but so far so good. Fingers crossed it stays away, at least you can still get about in the rain!

Anyway my fingers are cold as I'm typing this on Friday evening so I'm going to make this short!

At Totally Gorjuss this week we'd like you to use "sunny colours." Not the sort of colours I usually use but I think it's worked out ok.

I used :-
Card :- Calypso Coral.
Image :- So Very Grateful
Stampin' Write markers.
Crochet lace trim.
All from Stampin' Up!

Well I hope you can join us this week for this nice easy challenge. We're sponsored by the Ribbon Girl this week so you can be sure of finding something nice to buy if you win.

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up with you all later.

The card my colleague chose.

At the weekend I showed the first card I made to let my colleague see. She asked for a birthday card for her Mum's 70th. Her Mum likes flowers and she wanted 70 on it. You might notice there's no 70 on it. There is now as this is the one she chose. I love white cards with a touch of colour so I was quite happy with it. I had a feeling she would choose this one lol!


I used :-
Image :- from LOTV's wild flowers art pad cut out with a nestie.
Sentiment :- LOTV.
Embossing folder :- Tied Together from Couture Creations.
Ribbon from stash.

Best go now as I've achieved nothing all day and I still have my DT card to make for Saturday.

Totally Gorjuss 217 - Ribbon.

Good morning everyone. I can't believe it's January again already! And I must admit I am extremely embarrassed that it's been so long since as I posted on this blog. My broadband connection was very bad for a long, long time but I think (fingers crossed) that my new connection is much better!

Our first challenge of 2014 at Totally Gorjussis "ribbon." How easy is that? After all most of us love ribbon don't we?

One of the girls at work asked me to make a birthday card for her Mum who will be 70 later this month.

Here's what I came up with. Not sure I like it very much but I'm intending to give her a choice between this one and another one. She wants 70 on it but I won't add it until she makes her choice.

I used :-
Image :- Wildflower Meadow.
Sentiment :- Memorable Moments & For My Family.
Colouring :- Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz & Old Olive.
Satin stitched ribbon in Primrose Petals.
Card :- Primrose Petals & Old Olive.
Candy dots :- Melon Mambo.
Designer vintage faceted buttons.
All from Stampin' Up!

Well after two days off work for New Year I was back to work yesterday afternoon and this morning. I'll catch up this afternoon as usual. I hope!

I'd love to hear what you think if you have time to leave a comment.

Joyful Christmas.

Hi everyone, I'm extremely embarrassed to see how long it is since I've posted here!

I decided to use some of my new Christmas goodies. I have some lovely new stamps and I didn't know which to use first.

Here's what I made with the lovely Joyful Christmas stamp set.

I stamped the Poinsettia twice in Cherry Cobbler and coloured with Real Red and my blender pen. I popped the centre up on pads for some dimension. The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive and I added some Washi tape from the Season of Style set.

I need to scoot now but I hope it's not as long till I manage to post here again!

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up later.

Less is More Handmade Flower.

Hi everyone, hope you're all enjoying this amazing weather. I haven't seen much of it but it's nice to walk the dogs without wearing a big jacket!

When I saw the challenge at Less is More was handmade flowers I knew what I wanted to do straight away. Not like me, it usually takes me a while to decide what to do! This time it's only taken me a while to get round to actually making a card.

Products used all from Stampin' Up!
Flower :- Tissue paper and dies from the Secret Garden set.
Embossing Folder :- Adorning Accents.
Sentiment :- Curly Cute.
Button and cardstock in Pool Party.

I'd also like to enter this card at Totally Papercrafts :- Make your own flowers.

Thanks for looking I think I'm going to relax with some knitting now.

Have a lovely weekend.

So here's my quick and simple card.

I used :-
Image and sentiment :- Crazy for Cupcakes - an old set from Stampin' Up!
Colouring :- Stampin' Write markers.

I've got a crop at my local craft shop this afternoon so I'll be round to see what everyone's doing this evening.
