Food Glorious Food

Hooray, I made the top three over on Winter Wonderland with last weeks entry. That's three times now, I'm on a roll, so I'd better keep going while the mojo is still around. This weeks challenge is Food Glorious Food. Well that seems to be the theme in my house this week with me icing my Christmas cake and getting the ingredients together to make my mince ready for mince pies.
 I've also carried on with my sugarpaste class, learning how to make flowers from sugarpaste, obviously with Christmas coming up I wanted to make an OTT arrangement for my cake, the poinsettia and ivy are finished, now its just the Christmas roses.
 To continue with the trend of food and to enter the challenge I've used on of my favourite Molly Bloom stamps to create this card and I've gone away from traditional Christmas colours.

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.
