Penny Black Saturday Challenge

I'm so excited that I just can't hide it! Today I have an appointment, any guesses?
 I'll have to keep you in suspense until tomorrow, but I am so looking forward to today. While you are guessing have a look at this sketch.
This is the challenge set by Penny Black Saturday Challenge for this week, it didn't take me long to decide what to do. I have to say I find the sketch challenges the easiest, its probably because that's one of my favourite methods of getting my scrapbook pages going. I also decided to use bright summer colours that were suggested for the Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge.This looks like its gearing up to be a great challenge blog, with some fabulous prizes on offer. Here is the card I came up with, there's no greeting on it because sometimes you need a card for no reason at all!
Edited to add: Forgot to link this to the challenge. Learn from my mistake and always link if you've entered a challenge. I only just made 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.

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.
