Sunday...

....so, after a lovely week, weather wise, and a gorgeous Saturday - where's the sun gone? my one day this week of catching up with housework and washing and its dull and miserable!! perhaps it will brighten up later.....

We had a FAB day yesterday. Ang, Janina, Angela, Janet, Liz, Karen and I all clambered into Ang's "bus" and off to Ally Pally we went... we all had a great day, got loads of ideas and all came away loaded with goodies and inspiration.

I also met up with my friend Claire, aka glitterface, and we had lunch, a chinwag and a show and tell session - it was really lovely to see her again....also, its her Birthday this month, and since I gave her her card and pressie and she's opened them I can show you here...

The background papers are from Basic Grey's "Ambrosia" pack, and were distressed before adhering to the inked card base, the ribbon is paper ribbon from k&co, image, obviously Daisy!!, which I stamped into a book and then ripped out - no fancy punches here!! lolxx, primas - one with a flower embellie, the other two have got shrink plastic flowers as centres which were coloured using alcohol inks and then stamped with a text stamp....little pearls, pins a rub on all finished the pieces off.....

I hope that everyone that went to Ally Pally yesterday (and boy were there some people!!) and those that go today have as much fun and laughter as we all did yesterday...Thanks for a great day girlies...xx

Thanks again Carol, I just love the card and little box filled with primas - not forgetting the tag either. Great to see you again - how did you get on in the afternoon? I got a few copic pens after watching a demo (managed to actually see what was going on for once!) x
