Winter Wonderland Challenge

I am so enjoying my card making at the moment, I went through a period of not wanting to make any because I had hundreds. At Christmas I used as many from stock as I could then I just boxed everything else up and sent them off with friends. i didn't care what happened to them, I was just happy they were gone. With a fresh start I now make them and either use them or give them away straight away. The only exception is Christmas cards, after all I will need about 60 when that time rolls around again. That's why I'm following the Winter Wonderland blog and making one a week for their challenges, but wait a minute what's this? Make a card to celebrate Baby's 1st Christmas, what the heck??? I thought about this for a while, what on earth am I going to do with this? That's what a challenge is about isn't it? Well I made it, and I can give it to my BFF who can give it to her grandchild who will make an entry to this world in a couple of months. Job done and brownie points from my BFF. Here's my card. (Love these ovals from Craftwork Cards.)

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.
