Birthday cards

What a day, last night I was driving past the office and my exhaust fell off. Yep just fell off! The car was bought brand new and is only 2 years old. So its booked into the dealership tomorrow to be looked at. I still have another years warranty on it but they have to look at it first to say if its covered. So its OK for a two year old cars exhaust to just fall off? We'll have to see what happens tomorrow.
In the mean time, we have three men at work who will be celebrating the big 40. I had an idea for something very simple and rather than make cards one at a time, this year I'm going to make them in batches. Here are three to kick this idea off.
 
 
all the same but a bit different.

Hello Chuck
Long time no see. Hope you are keeping well and that you're car gets sorted on its warranty. I love the idea of doing cards in bulk. I did that for my xmas cards, don't know why I didn't think to do it for birthday cards too. It would definitely save on all the midnight to 2am mad dashes to get a card finished for the following day. Take Care

Oooops...that should say cards. I guess 'cars' are not the top of your 'happiness' list right now!

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.
