A couple of cards

What a busy day I've had so far, I was hoping for a nice relaxing week. A couple of weeks ago a lady opened her car door onto mine in the supermarket car park. I was walking to wards the car so saw it all. She managed to chip the paint on my door and seemed to be a little bit upset when I didn't say it was OK, in fact she was upset that her car had been chipped. In fairness it's a very small problem but it needs repairing and that will mean it has to be paid for, and I don't think it should be out of my pocket. I got a quote done but then she asked for three quotes, in fairness the first quote was being done through somebody I know so is being done very reasonably, but no she wants 3 quotes, which means I've had to go round getting them. Anyway to prove my point the other two quotes are twice as much as the original. Hopefully she will be a bit more careful when she's getting out of the car in future.
I've also booked appointments at the doctors, opticians and the car for it's annual service, Phew! time for a couple of cards. The first is another man's card for one of the boys at work, the next one is for a young lady who turns 18 this week. The 18th birthday card is using the gorgeous a touch of glamour clear stamps, they are really lovely to work with and always give a beautiful crisp image.
Off to sit in my garden in the gorgeous sun, hope this keeps up for the rest of the week.

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.

Lost Contact

I've had no telephone or broadband since I last posted, isn't it amazing how we become so used to something then when it's taken away we can't live without it. I had made a few pages and cards to post but then no broadband. AAAGH! Anyway a lovely man came out today and it's all fixed, that nasty jack frost had caused the wires to break, fortunately it was outside or it would have cost me money. I spent my time wisely, I purged and organised. I've only had my craft room for 10 months and OMG what a mess. I have so much rubbish that I bought thinking it was a great bargain and haven't used,like cheap glitter glue coming out of my ears. I have every colour of Stickles that I love and always use, so why did I waste money on cheap stuff, anyway no more its gone. (Well actually its laying at the top of the stairs waiting to be boxed up and given away.) I've also outed a pile of punches, I don't need them now that I have my beloved Cricut, why oh why did …

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.
