If you ever go to a NEC hobby craft exhibition be sure to watch out for the card makers tsunami with their trolleys! Wow they were everywhere! I didn’t need a trolley and I only bought a few things for card making; I enjoyed all the demos and watched with amazement as seemingly ordinary looking women produced cards with so many different elements and techniques that I felt my usual efforts of a bit of different piece coloured card trimmed with one of those crinkly scissors, a stick on pic.and a ribbon was paltry compared to what they were making. I wouldn’t have the patience to do so many things to produce just one card, nor the time.
This I chose with my Ladies Group birthdays in mind.
The beads are to make some more scissor fobs, the photo isn't good enough to see but they are pink, mauve and purple pearl beads, very pretty I thought.
And these rubber stamps just blew me away... cake cards are just me! They are not on a wooden base, but you stick them on the white card thing pictured behind the stamps. They then had them stuck on perspex but too costly for me so I shall sort something out myself. And I couldn't not buy some double sided sticky tape always useful. I bought with different needs in mind and am well pleased with my buys.
Now to get round to make the cards!!
So watch this space I shall have smoking needles and making progress on it this coming week!
I did thoroughly enjoy the day and am looking forward to the August Quilting one when I might just get myself a trolley, fabric is much heavier than card making materials!!
This is a post script to my Awards post... how strange that some of those to whom I gave the award wouldn't take it because of viruses??? If like me you have paid (and quite a bit I might add) for an anti-virus package, then no way could you get a virus from a posted picture.
Every few days when I go to log onto my blogs my anti-virus program pops up and tells me my blogs are safe sites.
I shall chose my blog award friends even more carefully should there be a next time. I was very disappointed by some of the comments.
And for those of you who have had negative comments? Well you can't please everybody all of the time is my outlook on life.
