Yesterday I went to the Creative Stitches and Hobbycraft Show in Exeter. It's an annual event for me and my mum - there's so much craft stuff I feel like a kid in a candy store! So here are the things I bought...
The box at the top was a show offer by Inkilicious - (I spent most of my money at that stall!) It had ink duster brushes, some card, an anti-static bag, some tags and some Christmas stamps.
If I was going to be using the ink dusters of course I needed distress inks, so bought Faded Jeans, Fired Brick and Dusty Concord! I also bought a load of different ribbons.
There was a stall full of wooden buttons called "Button It" and they were just gorgeous. It was so difficult trying to decide which ones to buy. I am working on a daybook for our recent holiday in Wales so had to get the Wales shield and Beside the Seaside for that and some Christmassy ones. They can be also be coloured with pens or pencils.
Now I just have to find space to put all this in my craft room! Watch this space for the cards etc I make with my new goodies!!

I've been bad at blogging recently! I've been on holiday though so haven't done much crafting. I had been eyeing up the Docrafts Hot Diggity Dog collection for a while and finally bought the papers and some other bits recently, so used it for Hubby's birthday card. I was making some other cards and thought I would start to think about what I would do for his card and ended up making it fairly quickly - I surprised myself! It's quite simple but was pleased with it.
I would love to know what you think of it!
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

I haven't been blogging much lately, because I haven't done much cardmaking. I have been crafting however - I am working on something, which I will blog when I have finished so watch this space!!
I was going through the photos on my camera and came across this wedding card I made a little while ago for some friends. I went to University with one of the couple so it was great to see him again after so long. At the start I really wasn't sure what to do for this card, but was really pleased with the way it turned out. I used New Leaf papers - I really like the peach with the brown and greens and thought they were nice soft colours for a wedding card.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes

Whoospi Daisy - Ribbon and/or lace
