Ally Pally

I hadn't planned to spend too much at Ally Pally yesterday but I blew the budget and dipped into the credit card just a little. So many tempting goodies and I really wanted some Memory Box dies as I am finding them so lovely to use, the card just falls out of the die, no prodding around to get them out. I restricted myself to 5 and only bought 2 stamps and 1 paper pad. It's Bo Bunny and such gorgeous blues and browns, very vintage. I also bought some die cuts from Little Claire and LOTV as I have so many craft fairs coming up I will need to make some quicker cards and these are ideal.

I met so many lovely people including Vicky, Teresa, Jo, Heidi and Steve at Little Claire, Leoni Pujol, Jayne at Stamposaurus, Jacqui and Claire at Crafter's Companion and also bumped into Nandia, one of my CC DT members.
Here I am with Vicky and Teresa.

I'm feeling tired tonight after three days away and two days of walking round shows, first The Gadget Show Live and then BSSB so I'm going to leave adding a card and will wait until tomorrow when hopefully I will feel fresher. Have lots to share with you this week. Need to catch up with visiting you too.

Waving hello to my lovely two new followers, Annie and Teresa.

Oooh looks like you've loads of lovely goodies there! Lucky you getting to go to Ally Pally ... our craft show in Belfast doesn't have half the suppliers. I'd say the Gadget Show would be good fun too!
