A crafty weekend

I have spent a lovely weekend in Glasgow ( my favourite city) attending the Hobbycrafts Show. A group of us take time out twice yearly to escape the pressures of our jobs in education. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have a laugh with a wonderful gaggle of girls. Susy and I are the serious crafters ( I know that the others won't mind my saying this!) and spend two days at the SECC trailing round the stalls several times over on both Saturday and Sunday.

I didn't go with any particular purchase in mind but, now that I am back home, am experiencing some guilt about the amount that I have spent!!! Anyway......we both succumbed to the allure of some of the Lili of the Valley rubber stamps. To assuage part of my guilt I have used one of my purchases to make the card below. I had been asked for a birthday card for a 1 yr old girl and had to have it ready for tomorrow ( no pressure!)

I stamped the dress and a shoe twice and coloured these before cutting them out and decoupaging.

other items used :

Promarkers , Fiskars border punch, Nestibility dies, gingham ribbon, background paper.

You must have been up late last night, I virtually went straight to bed and relaxed and watched tv. Lovely card. Not looked at my purchases again yet maybe tonight. See you Wednesday.
