Fantastic Weekend!!

Afternoon all! I have had a wonderful weekend, I thought I should warn you that this post may be a bit long winded as I have lots to tell and show you!

Firstly I went to Jule's SU class yesterday afternoon and had a fantastic time. Jules is a wonderful hostess and even made a coffee and walnut cake and some delicious muffins!! Here is what we made:

I love the opening of this card and we even decorated the inside!!

Then we made a waterfall card {think this is what you call this style}!

And finally a card made with a tie template from craft work cards.

So after a fabulous afternoon of making these cards, and having a laugh with Jill, Julie did a raffle for those who had placed an order and I won this lovely prize:


Some fab SU CS, papers and ribbons, perfect for making some male cards with! Thanks so much Jules!

Then today I have been to Stamp Magic at the Doncaster Dome with my mum! I met the lovely Bev, who was demonstrating on the Hobby House stall. It's so nice to put a face to a name {&blog}!! Well I stuck to my budget and even came back with £5 to spare, that's my birthday money all spent now though!! Lol! Here's a few pics of the lovely goodies I got!

I got some yummy prima fowers, spacers and charms from the Hobby House, along with a pot of what can only be descibed as 'crushed glass', it gives a lovely sugared crystal effect which can be seen here on the snowflakes on a card that Bev has made .

Some more nesties to add to my ever expanding collection {I really don't think I can possibly have that many more to collect now!} Lol!

I also got some staple items, CS, cello bags, EZ mount, envelopes etc that aren't so interesting to look at so I've not bothered showing you them!! Lol!

Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend in the sun. I'm off now to do a bit of hopping and to go and play with my new goodies before bedtime!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments. I really appreciate it!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
