I was very good and didn't bankrupt us and kept my spendy ways to a minimum, apart from a Magnolia or 2 and some beady stuff.
More in a sec, but first, as it's Sunday, it's time for another Anyone For Anya Challenge. And this week it's a recipe challenge - 3 papers or card (apart from the base card), 2 buttons and 1 bow.
I used Hope or Grace - never sure - and I coloured her with the old PMs. I had a bit of a disaster cos my Ivory pen , which I use to blend hair tones, is as dry as dry, so sorry if the poor mite's hair looks like a bad day at L'Oreal!!
Maybe that's why her cheeks are red ;) xxx
And that's the card with loads of dimension, paper piecing and 3D-ing!!
Have you noticed how quickly I've rattled through this bit!!! Not like me I know but I couldn't wait to share the pics from our day at the NEC yesterday.We had the most fab time and we met up with Bev, Marcea, Marlene, Caz, Jacqui, Rach, Tab, Kim P, Kim C and Kim D. Plus Zoe, Tara, Rica, and Jo plus Marlene and Rach's gorgeous daughters - pair of little stunners they are!!!
We all went to Wetherspoons for our lunch apart from poor Kim P and Tab as they were still working away doing their Magnolia things - totally awesome!!We put a couple of tables together and then we were joined by more and more so we kept nicking tables and joining them up - bet they loved us in there lol xxx
It was a great afternoon and I had the best time ever, so thank you to each and every one of the fab girlies xxx
So this is us.
We are actually all getting ready to sing Happy Birthday to Mrs Kath but sadly she was out. Probably as well as we might have got chucked out.
Marlene and Tara - deep in stash chat
Marcea, aka Super Magnolia Demo Girl taking a pic of me taking a pic of her lol xxx.
I loved the red from the camera on this pic so I had a fiddle in Photoshop.
Not sure who the peeps in the background are but I bet they were mighty sorry they sat by us lot!!!
I do have more pics but I cannot show you them because Bev for one will kill me.
And all too soon it was time to get the train home, but not before we managed to catch up with the sweetness that is Dulcie and her lovely Matthew. She was so busy but I do hope next time we manage to have a good old natter.
You won't be surprised to hear that we got the wrong train home, so we were late getting back!!! Well it was the right train in as much as it was going to Chester, but it went via Wales at about 30mph and stopped at every unpronounceable place you can imagine. Sometimes I think that I shouldn't be allowed out!!!
And finally, I have to say that it was really nice to see so many people wearing their poppies yesterday at the NEC. I would just like to thank every single member of the armed forces past and present for what they have done and are still doing so that people like me can sleep safely at night.
I am always moved to tears watching the march past the Cenotaph and the pride and sometimes sadness on the faces of those taking part, especially the old boys with their medals and their memories that I cannot begin to image.
And on that note, and before I start filling up again, I'm off to sort out dinner, do a bit of shopping and watch last nights, SCD. I know Craig went cos I cheated and watched the end of what I'd recorded before I went to bed last night, being the impatient and nosey madam that I am!!
But I want to see if there was another spat between Craig Revel Horrid - strangely attractive - and Len the Good Man. Last week's barney was awesome!!!
Have the fabbiest Sundays and hugs to all xxx
