My NEC goodies....and my pumpkins.....


Had a fabby time at the craft show at the NEC yesterday.... :-) I thought I'd show you what I bought....

A daylight lamp - woohoo! Finally! Shame I've got to wait for Father Christmas to wrap and deliver it though..... :-) Some card blanks and mirri card, an ink pad, some christmas papers and LOTS of glue runners - I need them for my wedding invites and the removable ones to fix my unmounted stamps to my acrylic block!

Some fab punches (only £1 each!) and some dies - corners, snowflakes, leaves and a rolled rose. And two of the new LOTV stamps.... I ordered one of the Pudsey bear ones too so I can make some cards to sell for children in need. They'd sold out at the show but they're going to post it to me :-)

Little Claire's butterfly tree stamp, some buttons, card candi, flowers, stickles and ribbons.... Oh and some of those fine tips for my promarkers..... :-)

Unfortunately most of this lot is my christmas pressie from my lovely fella so I won't get to play with it for a while..... I can have all the christmas stuff now though, and a few other bits and bobs :-)

I promised you I'd show you all what I did with my pumpkins from my allotment too.... Now my carvings aren't the best but I was quite happy with these and the kids seemed to like them :-)

And I managed to scoop out the flesh and make pumpkin soup too - yummy! Definitely making this again :-)

Also on the menu at my halloween party were chocolate spider webs - me and the kids had a lot of fun making (and eating!) these :-) I think they look quite good!

Right, I should be getting the kids ready for school.... Catch up with you all soon!

Love 'n' hugs,
