Holiday Makes & Spends

Hello All,

Well that's me back from our hols, we traveled back up the road today, the last part of the journey was through blizzards!!! Lots of fun!!!!

I had sooooooo much fun!!!! Crafting with my Auntie was fun, I made a few card, but because I was using someone else's stash they didn't seem to be my usual style!

This card I used some "Kanban" stamps, the flamenco lady and the blossom detail around the edge of the mat & the large rose and leaf detail. I have coloured the image with my copics and I have glittered it up within an inch of its life!! with gorgeous "Martha Stewart Glitters!! I had to do a close up as I used "Martha Stewart- Micro beads" and I just LOVE the effect they give. the ribbon and vellum was from my Aunties craft stash!

This is my entry for:

Spoonful of Sugar - Anything Goes
Fab&Funky - Go with the Flow
Creative Belli - R ( I have gone for Red and Ribbon)

My Auntie and I were such a bad influence on each other, we spent a fortune on the Internet, on crafting goodies. I bought a few bits and pieces from Dawn Bibbys shop,......But I have to tell you about my most exciting purchase....................I bought a WRMK Cinch!!!!......

I have been drooling over the Cinch for months! On holiday I went to the QVC shop, this is where all returned goods are sent, they reduce everything by 50% and then each section had a further reduction, the craft section has a further 25% off it. I went as I was needing winter coats...which I did get one cost me £11 the other £12! Anyway as I was saying I have been watching the cinch for ages, in fact I was upset as the last time it was on air it was on 4 easy pay and I missed it! however when I walked in the shop and saw a a returned one just sitting there.....rather bruised and battered I have to say (not sure how the previous owners managed to do that in just 30 days!!!) anyway it now has a loving home, and I cant wait to have a play!

I must head off to bed now I am just exhausted! I hope to catch up with you all as soon as possible, and also I hope to be back soon with a very exciting post!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hugs all round
