Happy Anniversary

ere is a Wedding Anniversary card that was commisoned this week my best friend at work, he asked if I had time to make a card for his lovely wife. This couple are so lovely it was really an honour to make it for him. Thankfully he is very pleased with it and I hope his wife likes it when it is handed over. Bless him, he has just brought a lovely bottle of Pinot Grigio Blush to my desk. I shall toast their anniversary while I sip it in my garden this weekend. All of it! The card is a lovely 8X8 white card from Craftwork Cards.
 The challenge this week over on Daring Cardmakers is a card to celebrate an Anniversary, I am happy to enter this card. Also over on the Allsorts Challenge blog they wanted to see a card with a tag or label on it.

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.
