Cybercrop And Allsorts Challenges

It's off and running the Cybercrop over on the Studio Challenges Blog began at 8am. I'm loving the sketches so far, but that's always my favourite way of getting started with a page. It takes me longer to sort out the papers then a couple of hours to make the page, its almost a full time job! This is one of the great things about this crop I've got until the 4th September to upload everything, perfect! I can take my time and get the housework done as well.. The 12 o'clock challenge was to make a card using one of the Cosmo Cricket lines of paper, I've used the Cogsmo range. I've also made a little gift card 3X3 for the challenge over on the allsorts challenge blog. Their challenge is to make a 3x3 miniature, so while I had the papers out for the Cybercrop I made a matching gift tag.
Here is the tag for allsorts.
and here is the card for the Cybercrop. Ellephantastic also have a challenge for male projects, right up my street as I have so many male cards to  make for work so I'm entering my card into that challenge.
 Also go over to Anna's blog she's celebrating 200 sketches on Pencil lines with a great giveaway. I'd love a copy of this book.

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.
