Oh Baubles

Last night I was planning a bath and an early night, then my best friend phoned to ask me for a link to the Lili of the Valley website. Before I knew where I was I'd started crafting and still hadn't had a bath or early night.
This weeks challenge on Winter Wonderland's blog is Oh Baubles, a Christmas card or project featuring baubles. I have recently sorted out a huge pile of rubber stamps to put on eBay. I have way too many and they are just not getting used. So I am having a good sort out and getting rid of a lot of them. This stamp was on the 'to go' pile, so i found it out and made this card.
I am now in a dilemma do I keep it or just let it go?

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.
