Pencil lines challenge 126

Where did this week go? I've been really busy with my new office/craft room and the time has just flown. It looks fantastic, even better than I had imagined. Just a couple of finishing touches and I'll be able to take pictures.

I bought an office chair from Argos but it looked so big and black in my lovely light room. It's a shame that there really isn't much choice in colours unless you want to pay a fortune., so I bought some fabric to match the blind and turned this:

into this:

I love it and it's really comfortable. It's still a bit too black but I can live with it better now. The added bonus was that it was free. I asked if I could use my nectar points that I've been collecting towards it, and I had enough to pay for it. I love free!

I've completed this weeks Pencil Lines challenge Sketch 126 and this what I came up with.

I had to turn it on it's side because of the photos orientation but I think it still worked. I'm so happy with my new crafting area that I was working on this until 2AM. I was back up early this morning so I will need to have a nap today to catch up. Luckily I'm not back to work until Tuesday so I get another 'play day'.

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

Birthday Cards for Men

Cards for men really are quite difficult, so when I find a colour combination that isn't just blue and can work for men I use it. One of my favourite combinations is a bright blue, bright red and white. I think its modern and bright. Over the last weekend I made a few cards with this colour scheme, those of you who visit me regularly will also know I like simple. We have worked our way through all the previous cards I made for the boys at work so another batch was called for beginning with this one.
