Lovin' Diamonds

Hi Everybody,

I had a lovely day out yesterday and we visited the   Sincerely Yours Craft Show   in Leigh.  These shows are held all over the country and so click the link to find out if there is one being held near you.

And a really big "Thank You" to everyone who took the time to say  "Hello"  because they recognised me from Create and Craft ... it was all  my pleasure and really nice to stand and chat with you if only for a little while

I always go armed to these shows with my pennies all clutched in my hot little hand ready to spend and yesterday was no exception.  I bought lots of goodies from my favorite suppliers and tomorrow I will be playing again with the items that I bought.

Amongst my buys are some really pretty satin ribbons from  Mei Flower  as they always tie into a wonderful bow to add to your designs.

I bought some lovely card in pastel colors  at 250 gsm from  AnnaMarie Designs   and this is excellent quality for use as your base card or for matting and layering  And craft shows are always a good place to stock up on many of your staples like glues or embossing powders, acetate or card as you are sure to save some pennies if you do.

So todays card is  from the Spellbinders Laced with Love Collection and this one is called  Lovin Diamonds    It is a 6" square card front and makes creating your card so easy.  Once cut you can add any shaped labels to the front with the verse of your choice.

The one I have used is a stamped sentiment from  Lili of the Valley  It has been stamped in pink and then heat embossed it with clear powder.

The ribbon is from  Mei Flower  and it is tied in a single bow and the dazzler in the centre of the bow is from   Wild Orchid Crafts   ... but no flowers are added to this one ... don't ask me why not !!

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  3. Glad you had a good day yesterday. I did as you suggested and checked out the company website for show dates. Unfortunately it seems that I live in the vast track of the UK between Manchester and Scotland that does not craft and they don't run shows near me.Oh well back to the internet.
    Love the card,like so many of yours that inspire me to keep crafting.

  7. Morning Christina,
    I do love the card, but not the bow. I think you already know me and bows don't go.

  12. Good Morning Christina. I'm so happy you had such a lovely day enjoying a craft show. We love to go to craft shows too in our area and go a couple of times in the summer. Todays card is very beautiful and the "diamond" glitter really enhances the diamond panel. Thank you so much for sharing. Enjoy your day.
