I'm back

Finally I'm back, I went into hospital lat Monday and didn't get discharged until yesterday. I have been sooo sick. I know it's going to be a long road to complete recovery but with the next 6 weeks (at least) of work it gives me time to craft, If I take it slowly. At the moment getting dressed renders me exhausted and I have to have a nap. Things might be a bit slow on here until normal business is resumed but I can't think of a better therapy. While I was in hospital I completely missed being able to post the card I'd made for the final leg of the Craftwork Cards competition, fortunately it was posted on their blog because I love this card.

So here have been my entries for the whole competition C.R.A.F.T.W.O.R.K., just click on the letter to see the card or project. This weekend sees the brilliant Northern Papercraft Extravaganza and they are running their version of the Oscars, just make a card and take it along to the show on Saturday to enter. As always fabulous prizes are on offer, see the details here.
After complaining I wasn't too keen on the card I made last week for Winter Wonderland's challenge I made the top 3!Right this post had to be done in two stages and I'm shattered so I'm off to lie down and dream of crafty things.

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.
 Firstly you will need to gather your supplies

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.
