Winter Wonderland Challenge

Today has been very still, although it was warm the sun never really broke through and the atmosphere was very quiet and still. I took advantage of the peace and have made a scrapbook page, unfortunately I can't share it as its a potential class page. I also made some more Christmas cards, this weeks challenge at Winter Wonderland is winter sports. 
I searched through my Christmas stamps and found this cute little boy going sledging with his teddy. I don't need much of an excuse to have a go with my Promarkers. I made two using some new papers that I recently purchased, they are from Docrafts and its their back to basics Christmas pack.


Hi kathy love your cards! So glad u decided to do a class at the heritage unfortunately I can't make it as my hubby is on call that day, I'm going to the project class tho. Hope to maybe be c u there or I will try to get on another of your classes. Hugs xx cara xx

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.
 Firstly you will need to gather your supplies

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.
