Snowed in!

I'm all snowed in! I got up for work this morning at 6.30, nothing, even though the predictions were that I would get up to 4 inches of snow. So I did my normal morning things and opened the door at 7.30 am with the intention of getting to work early to tackle my mountain of tasks and WHAT! Where did it come from? I did set off but after skidding a couple of times and only getting a mile in 15 minutes I gave up and came home. It is now 9.00 am and about 1.5 inches of snow covers everything, and its still snowing heavily. What's a girl to do other than craft?

I taken a picture of my wellies, I bought these to try and help with walking in the snow. When I got them home they fit great but because I'm only 5'2" they came right up to my knee which meant I couldn't bend my leg, so to sort that out I've chopped about 4" off the top. Everybody found this really funny, I just thought it was practical, but have photographed them to record the story.

Edited: Here is the 10AM measurement
and the 11AM measurement
12PM ok I've had enough now!
1PM and its still coming thick and fast

3PM4PM and it hasn't stopped all dayI had a bit of an inspiration overload last night, we have a lot of 'special' birthdays coming up at work this year. Mostly male 30th birthdays and one male 60th so this is my challenge this year. I'll post the cards over the next few days, here is the first one.

I've taken a few pictures already today, so that's the start of my Document 2010 project.

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.
