I arrived just before 11.00am and was only minutes into the hall when who should I bump into but my lovely crafty buds.....Lorraine and Gayle....we blethered and blethered and then the panic set in....it was time to meet up with the other lovelies for lunch and we hadn't yet made a purchase. To be honest I was a tad disappointed in the show this year....lots of regular retailers were missing so my crafty purchases were a little limited but hey I did find a real treasure trove of all things delish.....packed with Tim Holtz goodies SNAZZYS....so if you are going to the show and are a fan of the KING....make a beeline for their stand E03. I have to make apologies for the crappo pics....oh yes the weather here is just the same....DARK DISMAL AND RAINING.
Lots of Bazzill and some scrummy papers....Grunge Paper....Ink Tool and spare sponges....Distress Ink Pad...Mini Masks...sewing threads....oh yes another Hero Arts cling stamp and stocking up on the old 3D foam pads.....a real bargain at 50p a sheet.
It was absolutely lovely to meet up with all my lovely buds.....Lorraine & Ann...my gorgeous Fiskars buddies....Ann is looking great after her chemotherapy treatment and now has a luscious head of curly hair
and she brought me this gorgeous little pressie of MME papers and delish card
the gorgeous Cass...oh yes another one with luscious curly hair and my very special Funky Hand teamie Allison who gave me this scrummy assortment of goodies and another delish card made with one of my fave Polkadoodle papers
and her lovely friend Sandra.
It was an absolute pleasure to meet another two lovelies......Judy who lives just a stone's throw from me and her lovely sister and last by no means least....the one and only Gayle.....no longer a little bird....all scrummy plumpish round and gorgeously preggers and she is so naughty......bringing us all yummy cupcakes.
I am so lucky to have found all these wonderful crafty friends and thank you all for making the day so special.
And...this yummy delish pile of goodies from the lovely Julie Hickey at Craftwork Cards....don't know if I am supposed to share this with you all yet but hey ho I am in a naughty mood this morning....I have been asked to join their new DT and I am absolutely thrilled......been a fan for many many years.....can't wait to dive in and get some samples off to them.
Oh I am going to have such fun playing with all my new goodies but today is going to be a bit of a "feet up and relax" day....the old body needs a little time to recover from all the excitement yesterday.
Will catch up with you all tomorrow for another fabby challenge over at Penny Black Saturday.
