Here are some goodies I treated myself too at theCraft Show at Manchester Central on the 4th February. I love the peels off that are the glittery gears! 6 sheets for a £5 pretty good I though. As was the Tim Holtz Distress pad £3.50, wished I would have got more at that price now! I always buy myself a Craftwork Cards Goody Bag as the Value is second to non! Its crammed with stuff for a mere £10'er! I decided to go for a punch around the page punch set, although I did not get the one I wanted :( Still I think the one I ended up with is pretty nice! I have been meaning to get a Krylon Gold leaf pen for ages, my Friend Phil actually sold me on them after he showed me the edging results on card-stock & how shiny it looked, my eyes glazed over :) I also picked up a little 1 1/2 inch scalloped punch I have searched for ages!!! Was chuffed at that find. Theres also a Marianne corners die, that looks fantastic cut out of foil & used with alcohol inks, for an aged look. And another corner type die by Joy Crafts, thats about 4inches long. The Tim Holtz Fragments were another want on my list as was the foil tape! There will be results of some of this in the next few weeks I hope! All in all a good day out! However I have heard that it will be the last Craft show at Manchester Central and the next one will be at the Trafford Center in September!
Finally though I would show you a Thank You Card I made for a Relative In Canada. She rang to say she was chuffed with it and said she was going to put it in a frame on the wall!!!! I did giggle a bit at that, but still it made her happy, shes the most Spritley 90 year old woman I have ever know! Shes a true English Eccentric too, makes me laugh, shes fab! Check this out she celebrated my card with a few Glasses of wine with her buddies & had to be carried to bed! Puts me to shame, one glass and I am yawning! Anyway I used lots of different stash for this one, including Rub On's, Peel off's, DCWV Luxury Cardstock, Digi print outs of the Boot & Postcard images, distress inks and some liquid pearls. All in all I think it turned out ok!
