Ally Pally

Good morning everyone hope that you all had a nice weekend... I know I did!  My crafty friend Beryl and I went off to Ally Pally on Saturday and had a great day - spent far too much money - ha ha!  I popped along to see the lovely Julie and Sue from Craftwork Cards and couldn't resist buying the Sweet Pea Sweetheart Buds Collection - just gorgeous!  Whilst at Craftwork Cards stand a lovely lady came up to me and asked if I was "Sparklygirl-Tina" - how lovely - her name is Jane (*waving*) she recognised me from my blog photo and pops over here from time to time!  It was lovely to meet you Jane and don't forget if you ever start a blog do pop back here leave me a comment and I'll come right back and follow you! So pleased that you came and said hello it was really lovely...

Whilst at Ally Pally I had also arranged to meet up with another blogging buddy Sylvie (Gibmiss).  Well I sent Sylvie a text and was waiting to hear back... then I was standing at a demo by Leonie Pujol and a lady came up I look over then looked away then looked back and you've guessed it - it was the lovely Sylvie!!  She had phoned me - but I hadn't received a call on my phone and she hadn't got my text - damn technology when you need it eh!  But luckily we did meet up and it was so lovely to meet you Sylvie in the flesh and to have a catch up.  Hope that you and your friends enjoyed the rest of your visit and your second day of shopping at Ally Pally and no doubt we can meet up again when you are next over....

So I've made a card with my new paper collection and thought I would share it with you all.  I had intended to make lots of cards but then I started unpacking all my new goodies and ended up sorting out the whole of my craft room (you know the job you wish you hadn't started.... but then when its finished you are pleased you did - LOL).





I created my own little concertina folded border so easy and then highlighted each fold with some glitter glue..
 So that's my little share for today.  Hope you all have a good week.  Until next time..

Happy Crafting

Beautiful card Tina! Love the folds but can I ask what envelope would you use to post it? Im finding that Im wanting to make deeper and deeper cards but the envelope issue is off putting!

Sounds like you had a super visit to AP! Lucky girl!
