Not really missing

I'm not really missing, I have just had a couple of busy days. I went out with my friends from work yesterday to celebrate my friend Vicky's and my birthday. I didn't come home until 2 this morning. SO not like me but we had a lovely evening and the weather was perfect so nobody wanted to go home.I was driving so no drink was involved but my goodness today I am shot!
I checked the blogs for challenges this morning and I've done it again, I have won one of the prizes over on Penny Black Saturday Challenge with this card. I'm doing well at the moment, its not the fact that I get anything more that people actually like my work.
So for all my craft followers I'll post a couple of cards that I absolutely cased from Paula Pascual. I hold my hands up they are NOT my idea, but when I saw her version here I fell in love with it. Paula does the most beautiful work, very simple in design but with huge Wow factor, if you don't know her already you have to go and check out her beautiful work. These are the two cards I made and although the recipients loved them I know they are a poor copy of the original.
I now have a whole week off work so I plan to fumigate the house and finish all my half done projects, check back for more crafting posts but first I need a little lie down!

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.
