Dance with me!!

Hello everyone,

I'm back home safe and sound, after my weekend jaunt at a craft show...

I had a great time, spent my money in the first 40 mins..lol..and wandered around looking at all the goodies people had to offer...but my main ambition was to get a MS leaf punch..and I did, then found a spellbinders die set with 4 leaves...so bought that too.


Fabulous buttons...[I really needed more buttons!!!]...but they were so cute.



AND........


then I found charms...brass..


AND... my picket fence die....finally found one.






From there it was ribbons, a few papers, some cheap flowers [I'm so budget..lol..]

My main reason for going ws to find things that we dont have here in our small craft shop..and I did..I'm a happy camper.

Back at the motel last night, I was so itching to have a play, but all I had was papers, nail scissors, glue stick[from the dairy] and I did take images to colour, so I did those and made a card, up to a point, and finished it at home this arvo.


Coloured with pencils and messed up the ground....so added lots of dots, made a bit of improvement,
papers are from DCWV Linen closet....image is Tilda and Edwin..so cute
Love the black/white ribbon and those brads...Added them at home, sentiment from computer.

There you go...going to enter this card in a challenge at For fun challenges  [kids at play]

Right...seems I have some catching up to do...so will blog around, and catch you up tomorrow.

Luv CHRISSYxx
