Good morning everyone. Hope this finds you in good health and good spirits (not the alcoholic ones at this time of day I hope, although some of my creations may look better when enhanced by gin lol!!!)
Thank you for the kind comments on my DT cards. And now you have the third days post in a row (just like buses eh?).
Just a snap of my GBCF purchases today. Didn't think to take pics at the show, doh! Too busy yapping with John and going "Ooooh, look at this" and "Cooooo, look at that"
The day started with collecting breakfast of sausage batches (baps/barms/rolls-delete as appropriate for your area of the UK) from a local cafe. I then met John in a layby off the A46, in torrential rain, in a very ineffective waterproof, trying not to look as if something shifty was going on.
John then followed me to Stoneleigh, where he got to park under cover and I was outside! By the time I got under cover, my hair was plastered to my face and I smelt like wet dog!. . . . . . not the most attractive of looks!
We troffed our brekkie then dashed outside to the exhibition hall.
It was fairly quiet as it had just opened, so we had a good natter and browse without the usual rugby scrum scenes that happen when it gets busy. I introduced John to my local craft shop owner, Wendy (Daisy's Jewels and Crafts) as they had a stall and we picked up the same item to buy lol! (Not for the last time either!)
Met Christine at 12 for coffee and a catch up. Christine's friend had come along as she is thinking of starting to craft and I think we bamboozled the poor lady with some technical talk. It was lovely catching up with Christine as she's a smashing gal.
Back to the stalls again. I was on my own at one point and had just picked up a pack of peel offs to look at when my phone rang. . . . . John! I thought, blimey, he must have some sort of anti peel off device trained on me. I half expected a tannoy saying "Ang, step away from the peel offs" lol!!!
So, laughs had, purchases made and finally left as they were closing the doors. John then gave me some fab holographic card, some Chino shop pearls and gems and one of his gorgeous cards.
Led John back to the M69 then home to get showered, changed and off Nesta's surprise party (More on that later in the week with Nesta's gift bag).
Looking forward to November at the NEC with the Scottish Posse coming down again (but without Elaine, boo hoo) Christine and John and anyone else who wants to join us, the more the merrier!
Ththththththththat's all folks. See you later in the week.
Ps. . . . .yes, those rectangle dies in the snap are A4 size!
PPs. . . .there was some acetate purchased too but that's not interesting to photograph lol!
