Hi peeps and I hope that you are all having a very nice weekend.
I got back from the NEC last night, tired but happy cos I had a fab day. Didn't do much in the way of shopping, but there was lots of chatting and laughing. More in a sec.
As it’s Sunday, that means that it’s time for another Anyone For Anya challenge. Before I share with you, I have some news re the challenge. We’ve been thinking for a while that it might be nice to include some other images as well so that more peeps can join in. Well you probably know that I love the Emmas and Trevors and in fact all the CC Designs images. So I asked Christine and she said yes, we can include them as well. So thank you to her for this cos I know I'm not the only one who loves these sweet images. So you can now not only use your Anyas and TGF images but you can get your Swiss Pixies out as well (ooh matron!!)
So meanwhile, back at the challenge, as it’s the last one of the month, we always have a sketch.
And this week ……
The Copics were out again plus one or 2 PMs (otherwise they’ll only have a hissy fit!!). Now I have to say that I have not the first clue what I’ve done to poor Anya’s face but she looks like she has Hives here. But warts and all I am (mainly warts lol xx) so here we are.
Don't you just love lilac and lime together!!
Those little flat backed pearls were from The Hobby House and I got them yesterday. They were on offer so I bought loads -I expect they’ll be used quite a bit in the future.
Now onto yesterday.
Well the highlight for me was meeting up again with my cyber twin Mrs Kath. En and I had a terrible job keeping her under control and out of mischief and in the end we had to enlist the help of a couple of storm troopers who happened to be handy.
And thank God they were there cos there is no telling what might have happened otherwise ;)
You see, she’s smiling here but 10 minutes before I took this pic, you would not believe what was going on!!! All I will say is God help Birmingham last night, although to be fair to her, there was nothing on the news this morning!!!!!!
But anyway calm and order was resumed and we got on with the job in hand, namely sitting in Wetherspoons and gabbing (you surely didn't think we were there to shop did you???).
I did do a bit of retail therapy but I have to say that I was fairly restrained, all things considered, and I didn’t get that much really. But I did get some card from Sue at Craftwork Cards (and thank you to her for she knows what xxx) and I’m dying to try it out so watch this space!! I paid Mr Magnolia a little visit and I went to see Bev at The Hobby House stand and just had to get some templates and pearls – the ones I used on this card.
And I managed to meet Lisa and Laila LOTV who are just the sweetest girls ever, and also Jayne Nesterenko who is also the sweetest. And how fab that I met Sarah at last who was demoing for Hotshot Crafts and my pickled onion pal, Christine Dark xxxx
And of course my wonderful blog buds, the sickeningly- gorgeous- but- she- is- so- sweet- with- it- that- I- just-can’t-dislike-her-and- love-her-to bits Marlene, Mummy Fairy Jacqui, Bevalicious, Kim queen-of-all-things-Magnolia P, Tab, Jo Monkey, Kim C, Linda, Lorraine, Sonia (thanks for the company on the train chick xxx), and last but by no means least, the loveliness that is En xxx
Girls, thank you for another fab day and I cannot wait until the next one and if I missed anyone out, please forgive me but I am still a tad tired from it all xxxx
So on that note, I’m off to sweep the floor and Hoover the bedrooms. I know I make it sound so glamorous and I suppose it is, but someone has to do it :(
Have the best day and hugs to all xxxx
