Ok, ok, ok.... I know you all really want to know about my trip to the NEC craft show but first my card (cos I've already missed one challenge deadline!) I love this image... I won it in a challenge a while back but this is the first time I've used it. She's coloured with promarkers (what else???) and the papers are Henbury Lane. I got the silver trim at a car boot (bargain!) and I won the flowers and charm from Debs (thankyou!) and added some sparkle. Then I added some faux stitching with a brush marker. I used a sketch from Friday Sketchers but I missed the deadline because of my little excursion... :-)
I think I've managed to meet the deadline for these though:
Creative Inspirations - Glitter, Glamour, Girlie
Crafty Cardmakers - Stitching
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Sparkle
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Relish to Embellish
Anyway..... My little trip :-)!!! You don't want to know how early I got there - silly early! And there were still 9 people in front of me in the queue! Gutted! :-) I snapped up my essentials - some new stamps: My first (and second!) Tilda (although the Magnolia stand was missing!!! What's all that about????), one from Lili of the Valley (the new one's are gorgeous but I got an older one I'd been after), some christmas cuties and a lovely champagne glass. Then I got papers, and more scissors, and sticky stuff, and sparkley stuff, and flowers, and punches and some embossing powders because I've decided I really ought to give it another go....
I had so much fun! My legs are still aching! Spent a LOT of pennies. I just want to take this opportunity to thank my wonderful OH, Paul for making it all possible. Looking after the kids all day, cooking and cleaning, not to mention financing the expedition! I've got a good'un, Girls! And, no, you can't have him :-)
I hope those of you going over the next few days have as good a day as I did!
Love 'n' hugs,
