Monthly Challenge

Oh dear the blogging is slipping again, but with the gorgeous weather we are having this weekend I'm sure I can be let off. It seems a bit odd to be making Christmas cards with the sun shining but it will be here in no time at all. There are also some really good challenges going in and they are sparking my interest. This week I completed my next Scrap Whispers challenge but that can't be revealed until the last participant has completed their page. I have a few goodies that I have made all photographed now so hopefully i can catch up with the posts.
Today's card is for Lili of the Valleys monthly challenge, they want to see ribbon and lace on the card. So I  made this little card for my stash. I coloured the image a couple of weeks ago, it is from one the latest release of stamps from LOTV. The snowflakes die is from Memory Box and I bought in a sale, it has lay around and I think I've only cut it once but now it has been discovered again I love 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.
 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.
