That would be me then!
Oh yes, since seeing you all for last week’s What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday my poor little tootsies have done a far few miles in the name of crafting and I spent Sunday ambling around all the lovely stands at the Alexandra Palace Big Scrap and Stamp Show.
In the past I’ve usually gone on the Saturday but Sunday was much nicer, you could actually get to the stands and see what you were looking at without getting pushed and shoved from this direction and that….all very civilized I must say!
Needless to say I came home with a few new goodies and didn’t over do it for once, Lol, but can you spot the deliberate mistake?
My new stash includes, Distress Stains, two sets of Marianne spiral flower dies, a beautiful Lili of the Valley stamp and some of their die cuts, pin flair glue and glue dots, two bags of Christmas Card Candi, some Platinum Stickles and no less than five Masks to use with the Distress Stain......and eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that one of the designs I’ve managed to buy from two separate stands...........what am I like!
Oh well never mind, I’ve decided to give it as blog Candi to one of my commenters this week so if you fancy having a play with a Christmas mask just leave me a comment and mention that you would like to win it and I’ll do a random draw and announce the winner next week.
So now onto my desk and what’s on it this week.
As you can see I’ve already been playing with some of the new stash and made a Christening card using the stamp, Flower dies and spotty mask.
I’ve also used the Sketch from Cutie Pie Challenge
The card for the lady who asked me about the wedding invitations last week and there’s some good news on that front too. She’s asked me to do them for her so I’ll have lots of work coming up but I don’t mind.
I’ve managed to track down the special card she wanted so my next job is to make a proof for her to sign off and then I can get stuck in. The wedding is in August next year so the bulk of the order can be done after Christmas but she would like to get her invites in the post in early January so the sooner I make a start on them the better………….so pleased I make an early start on the old Christmas cards now.
If you want to see more desks go and see head desk hopper Julia and she’ll set you on the right road to see the craft spaces of the world and I’ll be back next week to reveal who’s the lucky winner thanks to my stupidity.
Update :- Well they say that generosity is returned twofold and that seems to be the case here.
Ally Pally has certainly turned out to be a lucky day out for me because I’ve just received an email from The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show team informing me that I have won the prize draw on the Particrafts stand…………and to think I wasn’t even going to bother filling out the slip.
Do I need to tell you all I’m a very happy bunny!
