Fabulous Competition

It looks like its going to be another gorgeous day. I can't believe how things happen. I've just had 6 weeks sick leave and decided last week that the monotony was just too much. I elected to go back to work on Monday (tomorrow), albeit to limited duties. It is a little bit too early to go back but as I'm restricted to what I can do it's boring at home. There are only so many times that you can watch the soaps, I was watching each episode 4 times in a week! So the timing, my Internet is back, this I could spend all day playing with.With the return of the Internet I discovered that UK Scrappers are doing their Cybercrop this weekend, I loved this last time and made some gorgeous pages. I've got very excited about the new one and have spent ages getting my kits together, this would have kept me busy for the rest of this week and over the weekend. Not to mention my blog. Oh well things happen for a reason.Have you been over to the Craftwork Cards blog recently? Two things have happened in my absence, the first is, I was profiled recently, go here to see it. I was sent a little package with some stash in it and asked to just do what I could with it. The carnival colours are just beautiful and havne't come out as bright as they truly are, the green is a gorgeous lime. Go here to see the products. The end results were featured on my profile. The two main pieces were a clock and a butterfly mobile. The mobile was really difficult to photo and it didn't come out very well. It looks lovely in real life, here is my photo to try and show it from a different angle.
The second Craftwork Cards event is have you seen their new competition? It's a cracker! Go here for all of the details.

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.
