Receiving Loud and Clear

Phew! I'm back on line, Bye Bye to the rude customer services at Talk Talk and hello BT Total Broadband. Talk Talk even had the cheek to call and ask me why I was moving. It took all of my will power to not say well you try crawling round on the floor and running up and down stairs repeating mindless tests , all only 14 days after having your stomach cut open and bits removed. While a young man tells you to shut up repeating that they had promised normal service after 24 hours. He being the one that kept repeating that he wanted me to go and knock on a neighbours door to see if they would let me test my equipment on their computer????? How much time did I want to reconsider, ooh it took me only one second! I now have lovely normal service and not only that BT's equipment is all modern and shiny, I like.
Well I haven't been idle in my absence, I have done a bit of crafting so I'll post my efforts over the next few days, I'm still catching up with the backlog off being in the Internet wilderness so I'll also drip feed the goings on of the last few weeks along with my piccies.

This is a page for my brother, he recently took the boys to Scarborough for the weekend. I used up loads of summer themed paper scraps and ribbon scraps and copied the layout of a page that we made when I recently went to the Inspired Retreat in Chester. Emma Trout was the fabulous teacher and I knew this would be a layout I would repeat often with different themed papers.
It's good to be back!

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.
