Harrogate Papercrafts Show .....

I just thought I would post the card that we made at the breakfast workshop yesterday, (I went with my friend Liz) not only did we get to make this gorgeous card but we also got to keep this Tilda stamp and the 7 copic markers that we used to colour her with!! I have to say, I love those pens, but almost have the full set of the current promarkers, so just have to stick with those!! I guess you will see quite alot of these colours as they do seem to be perfect for Christmas, lol!! The workshop was by Samuel Taylor with a very talented lady called Jo, all this for the bargain price of £11!!

I did it again, spent so much more than I intended!! Ooops!! I bought some gorgeous new stamps from Lili of the Valley and lots of gorgeous ribbon (I think it's one of my obsessions!!), and so many other goodies!! Its also nice to meet other people who share this "addiction" and see some of the gorgeous cards on display. The only disappointment was the lack of good quality papers, I didnt get the kind of papers I was hoping for, although I did buy a few sets of the new Craftwork Cards Christmas papers.

It has been a glorious weekend, we had a BBQ when we got home on saturday, probably the last this year but it was a perfect evening and good to relax, althought the craft shopping had to be left unpacked a little longer!!

I have won a set of stamps from Tracy at Dies to Die for the sponsor of last weeks Anyone for Anya Challenge, Wow, I'm not usually so lucky!! lol

Hope you have had a good weekend too,

For some reason I can't see the card, this has happened a few times with other blog's and should appear at some point, so I would just like to say that your workshop sounded fab.. with the added exta bonus of keeping the goodies ( it was a bargain price )

Congrat's on your win too
