Creativity Boot Camp - Day 10

Oh boy what a day I've had today! The auditors have been in and as the only trainer in the company I was it! Why do we put pressure on ourselves? I am my own worst enemy for this. Happily we were OK. Then I went for lunch and passed a message on for somebody, which unfortunately made me the mouth piece for some unwelcome news. This disturbed me a bit because the recipient is very dear to me. All I could think about was coming home to this (can you see my reflection in the first one?)
 Very unusual for me because I very rarely drink, but today this full bodied glass of wine was calling me. Fortunately everything is all OK with the world again. This led me nicely to our Creativity Boot Camp prompt for today, yes you're ahead of me full bodied. I did think of Guinness first, but I deffo wouldn't drink it, so I killed two birds with one stone took the pictures and I am now sipping the wine. Hic!
Have you made your card for the Craftwork Cards Wags sketch challenge? You've only got until Friday, when a new sketch will be published. Hop over to see some of the lovely entries that have been submitted.

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.
