Flying by

Well the weeks are beginning to fly by, I can't believe its a week since I posted. I've been busy making up some samples for a class idea I have had for the Craft Box at Elsecar. This will not be one of my normal scrap booking classes. Here is a sneaky peek. I'll reveal once Lynn has seen it and decided if there is a room in the busy class schedule to add it in.
I've also made a card for this weeks Winter Wonderland challenge, the theme is Rudolph. I had a look around and I don't have any stamps where Rudolph is the main focus, then I remembered this little punch art Rudolph that was all over blogland last Christmas. I love his cheeky face and it fits the bill perfectly.
Can you believe its only 122 days to Christmas, don't shout at me I noticed it on the Winter Wonderland blog when I went over there just now. Better start buying the ingredients for my cake.

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.
