Spot my deliberate mistake winner

Well you spotted my deliberate mistake. The sponsor of this weeks Totally Gorjuss challenge, Joanna Sheen, was not giving away a £10m ( million) voucher. Has anyone told her???!!!

I must be more careful when i type my posts lol!

The voucher is for £10, but i think we could all spend £10m on crafty goodies.

So i am putting up some more candy tomorrow, with this in mind so please check back.

So who has one some candy for correctly spotting my mistake?

Jan from Jan loves to craft. Could you email me your address and i will send something out to you.xx

Check my post tomorrow for another chance to win some candy

Plain and simple

Here is a card i made with my class on Saturday.

I was inspired by a card i saw on Pinterest.

I cut a piece of card the same size as the card blank, then cut a circle aperture out of the centre. I then stamped the music stamp through this. I overstamped the flowers and the word Hope. How simple is that?

I hope you will have a go too.

Not Square

Happy Saturday everyone,

Today sees a new challenge at Totally Gorjuss.  Our theme is

Not Square.

So for this week only put away your square cards. I have used one of my Go Kreate dies to create my DT card for this week.
I have also used another die to cut out the plate stand to stand the card on.

I have used one of the gorgeous Saturated Canary images. I don't usually use light greens in my card but i loved the papers in this stack  ( First Edition by Trimcraft

I added flowers and die cuts to finish my card and i coloured the image with Promarkers.

Our sponsor this week is The Hobby House

Thank you for your visit.

That was how we did the first card.

Plain and Simple

Plain and Simple

That's what we want at Totally Gorjuss this week. So don't worry about, flowers, flourishes, buttons or other embellishments.

I couldn't choose 1 card i made so here are all 4!

The stamps are ones i bought at the NEC last weekend.

After stamping the image i swiped some Pan Pastels over it and then added some Stickles, which doesn't really show up on the pics .

Our sponsor this week is Heathers Hobbie Haven

We hope you will join us this week.

This type of card is so easy to make and you could make up a few to give as gift sets.
