Are we there yet?

I am sitting in my craft room waiting for the UKScrappers Cybercrop to start. I am surrounded by my snacks and kits, just beside myself waiting. So to keep my fingers busy I ate the Jelly Babies, this is not good they were supposed to last me all weekend! I'm like a kid bouncing on my chair and singing  are we there yet, are we there yet? Quite funny really the theme for this one is Monopoly and I'm in the cars team. Beep, Beep!

To distract me from the stash of goodies I've made my card for this weeks Winter Wonderland Challenge, this week its anything goes! I love this stamp and made a similar card at a card class but can't remember where. It's quick and easy to do as a production line.Well that kept me busy for an hour, only 45 minutes to go!

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
Florist wiresflorist paper tapepaper flowers - they need to have a 'tail' on them, I used these card stock to make leaveseither a leaf punch or die to cut leaves, I used these distress ink Cut as many leaves as you think you will need and ink …


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.
