Get Well Soon

Its always sad when somebody has to have an operation, but it makes it worse when the operation goes wrong. I recently spent some time with somebody who needed the same operation that I had 2 years ago, she was very worried and I tried to do my best to settle her mind. It was difficult because my op developed complications. Two weeks ago she was admitted and unfortunalty as they began the operation they cut an artery. She has been very ill and to make matters worse the original procedure has still not been done. It has been a very stressful time, especially for her family but she is now improving. 
With this sort of sutuation how do you say get well soon? I had to leave it until I knew she had improved enough to know she was due to be discharged then I made her a card
I love this image, it made me smile while I was making it and I hope it made her smile when she got 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.

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

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.
