Harrogate Haul!

Hello friends!
I hope you are all well. The sunshine here has been replaced with rain and gales today and it is cooler too. I guess it is normal for March.

Another week gone and time is 'March'ing on (see what I did there?).....sorry , I can hear you all groaning.

Well I got to Harrogate and got my Glossy Accents........and .....well see below....

Can you spot the glossy accents?...just a small bottle as I don't use a lot.
It was a very busy show and rather more of a crush than anything in the morning....I have to say I lost the will to live at one point! It wasn't till after lunch that it calmed down and one could see a bit and get near the stalls. Anyway a good day overall as I bumped into a few people from craft club and  met up with a couple of friends for coffee and then went out for tea with more friends after the show.

Despite my new purchases my time this week has been taken up with other things so no crafting taken place so instead just showing you a few makes from the monthly craft club I go to. The first two were using a Sue Wilson die and if you remember the Thank You card I did the other week...that was made with left over pieces from craft class that I kept to use later.

This next one is a papercuts die and was a fairly quick card to do.

Have a good weekend and I will hopefully see you all again next week,
Thank you for stopping by.....I do appreciate your visits and all the lovely comments you leave me that make my day.

  1. Looks about right Carole - well you had to justify the petrol. I bought those Honey Doo backgrounds at Doncaster and not sure where they are which means they've not seen ink. Pretty cards and especially like the black and white one.


  2. I'm so glad it calmed down enough for you to buy a few new goodies. I've got a bottle of glossy acents in the cupboard and it must be about 5 years old now!
    Three super cards, the colours and flower on the first two are so pretty but I love the black + white elegant design of the last xx

  3. You naughty Girlie.... all them goodies!!! LOL
    A nice array of cards though Carole - love them all. Been the same here today - a perfect excuse not to move out of the craft room chair! x

  4. Beautiful cards Carole and love the sentiment on the black and white one. Haven't seen it before. Glad to hear you had a good time at Harrogate. Have a great weekend, hugs, Carol S.xx

  5. Nice haul Carole, enjoy playing with your goodies when you get chance. Your cards are super and my favourite is the classy black and white one, its very cleverly designed x

  6. These are lovely Carole, some of the dies you can get now are fab for quick cards that are really eye catching
    Sorry I missed you at the show it would have been nice to have a catch up. I wanted a polkadoodle stamp but couldn't get near, I gave up!

  7. Ooh, new stash! We have a show near here and discovered that it's much easier to get round later in the day. Earlier you can barely move. I'm sure you'll have fun with this lot. That black and white card is very striking. What a great idea. x

  8. Hi Carole

    Fabulous cards as always .. .. and a lovely selection of new goodies from your trip to Harrogate. I can see you having hours of fun with those!

    The Honey Doo stamp set looks interesting!

    Hope you are having a good day today. We started with snow and now have beautiful sunshine .. .. but still with the strong winds.

    Love Jules xx

  9. What a lovely collection of cars Carole and I love the subtle sparkle on the rose cards. I'm glad you enjoyed the show and I'm looking forward to seeing you put those goodies to good use!

  11. Oooh! Naughty girl, but I like it! I don't like crowds and I can imagine it was packed there! Love the cards you made, the yellow rose is beautiful... Loving the look of the stamp you got with the yachts too!

  12. Those blooms are gorgeous! I just love that rose. AND luck you..what a great haul!! Love your new goodies!

  13. Oooh, that last card took my breath away, Carole! It's stunning! I love the rose cards, too! A very productive and talented class! And I just about fell off my chair laughing at the photo of your "glossy accents." So true, whether in person or online. I'm glad you recovered from the crush and went on to live and enjoy your crafty pals!! Hugs, Darnell
