Late post

I'm a bit late posting today, I've been working in Liverpool so haven't had access to a computer. I went with a colleague and when we were going over the Snake Pass we saw this.

How amazing is this, there was nothing other than this patch of icicles, it looks like the puddle below them was the icicles melting, but as cars came round the corner the puddle was sprayed back over the ice. As it didn't get above 2 degrees all day they were still there on the way home so we stopped to take a photo. This will probably find its way into my document 2010 project for February.
Meanwhile the Craftwork Cards challenge continues with T for template, just make a card or project using one of their templates and send a photo of the results to them. Simples! As I have said I can't win a prize but I can have the fun, so here is my card using the build a fairy template. I just didn't put the wings or wand on and made it a card for a teenage girl. Go on have a go, you've got until 19th February to get your entries in. Don't forget the flowers part of the challenge ends tomorrow, go here to see the entries so far. Good luck!

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.
