Farnborough Show & Cards

Good afternoon, hope you are having a lovely Sunday? I just wanted to share some photos from the 'Make It' Farnborough show where I have been demoing all weekend. Here is a rare photo of me (not a great fan of having my photo taken lol!) and one of Steve busy with customers. We sold out of so many products, so well done to you if you managed to get what you wanted. What a show! It was my first time there and wow, it won't be my last, so much to see and purchase lol! It was manic on Friday and yesterday but such great fun. The highlight of which was meeting my lovely friend Brenda, who I have been blogging with for over a year now and also catching up with some lovely crafting friends, thanks to all that stopped by to say Hi! I managed to grab a few fantastic bargains as well - too many to mention, (don't tell David lol!).

Here are just a few cards that I made whilst there, more to follow.

Little Claire Large Flower decoupaged twice on peach check paper and Brown Bazzill . MS large heart punch and Doodlebug bling - bling!

Using the same LC Large Flower onto b/w dot paper, black & white bazzill with MS heart punch and SU lush black stones and sentiment.

Little Claire Small Flourish on Doodlebug Daisy paper, SU stones & sentiment and the lovely MS Heart punch again!

Little Claire 'Lily' and 'Flourish' stamps, Lilac Check Papers, SU sentiment and Kaisercraft Lilac stones.

Right am off to wrap pressies, Georgia's birthday this week, where have eleven years gone?? I have lots of pressies to wrap and an important birthday card to make as well as some DT work to do, enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Thanks for any lovely comments left, I really appreciate them,

big hugs

It was FABULOUS meeting up with you Heidi, and it seemed as though we'd known each other for ever not just meeting for the first time. Just amazing. So you managed to buy some bits and pieces then hehe. Loved your cards, the flower one is gorgeous. Hope you aren't too shattered and that you catch up quickly. Happy birthday to Georgia.
Take care.
