Helloo and happy Thursday to you!
Gosh… it’s been one busy day today as I’ve been to the NEC Hobbycraft show.
It was absolutely fab but more about that in a bit…
First I want to tell you about the new challenge over at the
where the challenge is just a little different than normal!
As the challenge blog has provided you with lots of sketches over the past few months
we thought it might be nice to leave the choice this week up to you and choose your favorite..
My card is from the very first sketch given on Jan 1st 2009
using one of Leanne Ellis’s fabulous stamps.
Of course as things are a little different this time,
there is no ‘please include’ option this time around!
Just use any of the fabulous SUGARNELLIE stamps and away you go.
There is a galery of sketches over at the
blog and also the DT cards for your inspiration..
I haven’t had time to take a picture of my stash that I got from the NEC today but will show tomorrow…
As usual I’ve spend way more than I set out to spend..
but I sorta knew this was gonna happen so it didn’t came of such a shock.. lol
I was sooo pleased to get to the Magnolia stand and seen that they had the Pirate & Fantasy Princess stamps with them as well as the wedding ones,
and to top it all they had my all time favorite Tilda [with Tulip]
that I’ve been after for a looooong time as I’ve got sort of a crafty fettish with Tulips
[from Holland I suppose ;-)]
There weren’t any new mini stamps for me so I haven’t bought any of those!
It was a super nice surprise to get to the Lili of the Valley stand
to see the latest CM&PC magazine with their Fairies pinned to the wall..
it wasSo lovely to meet both Laila and Lisa * big waves * and thanks again for everything!!
Other than stamps I’ve got lots of new Nesties, punches, embellishments, paints and paper.
I’m having such fun stroking it all at the moment 🙂
Like I said, I will show more tomorrow.. absolutely shattered at the moment.
I’ve also got a poorly kitty to look after at the moment,
took him to the VET to be ‘done’ and they found some extra bits so he needed stitches..
now he has got one of those plastic cone things around his neck to stop him from licking the stitches
and I feel so sorry for him!!!
But it is for the best and only has to wear it for a week.
Then last but definately not least..
You might remember the blog hop Sugar Nellie had last month?
Well… the winner of my stamp ‘Reflections’ emailed me
with her first card made with her winning stamp
and I was so chuffed she was so thoughtful as to show me
I asked if I could show on my blog.. so here it is
Isn’t it gorgeous?
I absolutely love it Alison, Thanks so much for showing it 🙂
Well, have a good evening all and night, night for later..
