Bloomin' Marvellous!

February was a good month in the crafty department, I was far more productive than usual and managed to show a whole 5 cards during the month ha!
March is a different story, but I already knew I had a lot of stuff going on this month and my play time/computer time would be almost nil. 
I do have a card made but haven't had a chance to photograph it yet.
I also have a little candy ready but haven't had a chance to photograph it yet.
*sigh* can someone come over and do my photo taking please?

The best thing about March is the Great Northern Papercraft Extravaganza (the craft show at Harrogate) which takes place this coming weekend. I am so looking forward to going!!
I don't actually need shopping list comprises of 3 items:

1) Pokey Tool
2) Staz-on cleaner 
3) Blank cards

A bit boring huh?? 
I'm sure there will be something there that I will NEED to buy, there always is.
The best part of the show for me is catching up with good friends, and I'm excited to be meeting up with Christine, t'other Christine, Mau and Jill, over a coffee and a natter (and I've just heard that Lisa will be going too)

I'll get back on here with something to show you as soon as I can, but this month is busy for just about all of it, so I hope you will excuse me if I'm not around much.

I'll leave you with this....

I've got two of these foam mounted stamp sets from Stampin' Up , and so a spare set if anybody wants this one?
I'll get my boy to pick out a name on Sunday afternoon.

Thanks for looking

  12. Hi Elaine. I will throw my name into the hat for the stamp set. I know what you mean about being busy - I really miss it when I am not able to do some 'crafting'

  13. wish I could come along too!! Not much crafting going on here either Elaine, roll on April and my holidays :-)

  14. wow what a gorgeous set! Thanks for the chance! And I so didn't know there was a cleaner for Staz-on ink! Totally going to have to invest in this too! Thanks!

  15. Hi Elaine
    What day you going to the show i am going on Saturday
    Hugs Dianne xx :)

  16. I'm sure you will buy more than 3 items Elaine!! Hope you have a good weekend!!


  17. Yay - you get to go to this one! Mmmm three items only - i don't think so. It will be interesting to see what you do buy.

    I will be there on Saturday (to shop) and Sunday to help out a lovely lady on her stand as she is a little short staffed.

    Hope I bump into you.

  18. Take care midst your busyness - my blogs are somewhat bare at present too. Enjoy your time at the show & catching up with friends. Please don't include me in your draw - I just didn't feel quite right not saying hello.

  19. I would love for a chance, thanks.

  20. Hi Elaine, I'm so pleased to hear that you have some me time planned for this weekend, nothing quite like a few hours of giggles with your female friends to cheer us up. I dare say there may be a few goodies leaping into your shopping bag, we need a wee treat now and then. Here's hoping the weather warms up a little for your shopping trip, have a lovely time with the girls...Trish

  21. If you're anything like me, I'd like to see pictures of all the things that AREN'T on your list. Hope you have a wonderful shopping & visiting day.
    Hugs, Janie
