Daring Cardmakers

Look at me two posts in one day. The weather is gorgeous and I've been out in the garden making it all pretty. I had to come in for a drink and a bit of a cool down so what better way to cool down and ignore the football than to make a card? Daring Cardmakers have a great challenge this week, a sketch (yippeee!) and the design team got to use the lovely Nikki Sivils scrapbooker papers, who is sponsoring this weeks challenge. 
I was lucky enough to attend a class run by one of their design team Anna Bowkis, where we used the flaming butterflies papers. Here is a link to the page we made, just gorgeous. I haven't put a picture on mine yet.
This weeks challenge is also sponsored by Sarah's Cards, who run the most fabulous kit club. I subscribe to the scrapbook kit but they do an excellent card kit as well.The Nikki Sivils papers can be bought there as well. So without further ado here is my card.
Don't you just love those rows of dogs. These papers are all from the Anglomania collection by Craftwork Cards. I'm so loving these papers at the moment. If you want a day of crafting with their beautiful products Julie Hickey is hosting a day of summertime fun, why not join us?

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.
