NEC update and LotV challenge

Only just about got over the busy day yesterday!!
but I’m all set to do it all over again tomorrow!!!! lol

Boy was it busy!!! It was a superfun day and yep..
I’ve spend up, got no penny’s left!!!!
[I’ve tried to take a picture of my stash.. but my camera didn’t seem to have stopped working! heehe]

My first stop was the magnolia stand as I hoped the new Christmas Tilda’s would be there..
and they sure were!!
So many to choose from, think I had to get nearly all of them 😉
Then John asked me if I knew that one of my cards was in the Magnolia Ink Magazine that was out..
and I can tell you that I whooped with joy when I seen that my card was shown at the back
to promote the next Issue out in February!!


It was also superfun to meet some fabulous Blog Ladies *big waves* and Tracy at Crafts you Love,
I’m glad I left some stamps for you.. heehe!
I really can’t wait until tomorrow when I hope to meet up with tonnes more blog friends 🙂

Then it was a big, big pleasure to meet Dulcie on the Origin Publishing [magazine] stand
where she was demo-ing her fabulous WILD ROSE STUDIO stamps,
they are just the cutest!!



Right, back to my card:
Over at the Lili of the Valley challenge blog they have a recipe for you to follow:

3 Papers, 2 Stamps [one can be a sentiment] and 1 type of Embellishment.

I got myself some of the new yummie LotV stamps at the NEC yesterday..
and used this little fella for my card today.

The papers are MME Everyday Tango,
colouring medium is copics and I’ve used my new spica glitter pens that Bryony is now selling over at
SU! sentiment and punches, as my embellishment type I’ve gone for bling!

I’ve really enjoyed myself.. Thanks for the Challenge 🙂


Don’t forget you have until Sunday Evening to join in with my Lottie Candy..

Read all about it HERE and once again.. Good Luck!

Hugs, Marlene x
