Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

August 31, 2014

Craft show "Goodies" ...

Hi Everybody,

What a lovely day I have had out in the sunshine and going to the craft show.

I bought quite a few items  but mostly essential stuff like card and glues.

But some of the pretty things that you can see in the photo are some lovely  strings of pearls   from Anna Marie Designs and they are going to look fabulous on my cards.

I bought lots of card from AnnaMarie too and also some from Limetree Craft and they have a really good display of card in all different weights and colors.

My favorite ribbon was there too and I bought loads of satin ribbon in white to color myself from Mei Flower

I bought some new craft knives and blades and tweezers too ... along with scissors as they are always needed in the craft room.

And from the ever useful Pound stall I bought lots of magnetic sheets to store my Spellbinders on and at £1 they are an absolute bargain ... and the deal was buy 12 and pay for 10 so I bought lots of them.

I also got some really pretty embellishments to add to cards for a truly luxury finish from   Chloes Creative Cards  but do price these into your cards carefully if you sell them.

I also met some lovely ladies who recognised me from my visit to Create and Craft TV ... and that was a very strange feeling ... but very nice.

So after a really lovely day out and a wonderful roast beef Sunday Lunch I am home again ... tired,  happy and full.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
