Goodness me would you look at that!

Look at the time that's gone by since I last blogged. *hangs head in shame* I was at the craft fair at the SECC today. Last night I was like one of the kids on Christmas Eve, I was soooo excited! I went from having nothing on my shopping list to buying loads of stuff. The first thing I bought was a couple of the Sassy stamps from Sugar Nellie, where it was great to meet Ali Watson who I've chatted to on Facebook for ages, lovely to meet you in the flesh Ali and I hope next time we can have a much longer gab!! Ali, however, gave me into trouble for not updating my blog. So here we go, the start of a new me...... yeah, right. We'll see how long it lasts. Can't wait for the kids to go to bed so I can have a play with my new toys. I bought the Sassy stamps, a couple of LotV stamps (one of which I've christened Stroppy Cow) - have a look at their website and see which one it is you think I mean!! Also got some Tim Holtz stuff and DH told me if I saw anything I liked I could buy it for my birthday. I figured the Vagabond or the Big Shot pro were out the question so I went with some Tim stamps and an extended cuts of his tickets. Looking forward to getting to use them in April!! I've been very naughty on the crafting front too, I spend most evenings sitting on the laptop which is not good when I could be crafting! I've looked at loads of blogs but it hasn't transferred into any action! Anyway, here's a photo of a card I did recently for a wee girl in Craig's class at school for her 9th birthday. The image is Pom Pom Fairy from LotV and she's coloured with promarkers. The name is cut using the Groovy Girl Sizzix extended cuts and the wee sentiment is from the Stampin' Up Circle of Friendship set. Hopefully see you tomorrow! Susan x
