Mum and Dad's Anniversary Card

This was one of the first cards I made when I started card making in January,

As my stash levels were very low then it was created by using random scraps of paper and  the Bigshot Grandad and Angie gave me, the letters are coloured in using chalk and all the embellishments are cut on the bigshot as well,

Creative Stitches Show Exeter,

Last Saturday Sarah and I ventured north and attended the Creative Stitches and Papercraft show at Exeter's Westpoint arena, it was not as large as the ones at the NEC or Ally Pally, but it did have a lot of craft stalls and it was lovely to see things in person instead of just on a web page, I even met the lady who designed the Hougie Board. I did however get some new stash.

I ended up with ,
4 sugar nellie stamps,
3 sets of ollyfants stamps,
new sizzix clear mats and flourish dies,
2 laura ashley paper pads
one LLB paper pad,
some beautiful glitter and the pots,
a bow maker
2 sets of nesting shapes templates
A messy mat and some tiny scissors

We then ventured down to Trago Mills where I got,

Some more glue,
gilttery paper ribbons,
2 docrafts christmas paper packs
an embossing folder,
a metal ruler and craft knife and My Craft Room lines and waves embossing mat,
we had a good day shopping, just have to find the time to play with the new stash now
