WOYWW - Hoppy Easter !

Well just a quick post tonight.
I am waiting eagerly for tomorrow as my Sister, B.I.L. & 2 nephews are coming for Easter and I am very excited as I only get to see them a couple of times a year !

I just don't know where the days go !
I have so many crafty things I want to to do & never a moment to get to my desk !
All I have managed this week is to throw some bunnies together ! Just a few quick cards for the family !
 I do have a bit of an excuse for not getting much crafting done at the weekend - apart from the fact that Sunday was a gorgeous clear blue day and so I spent most of the day working in the garden !

On Saturday, 6 of us friends from Scrapclub squished into my car & at 6.30 am our little charabanc set off for London and the Big Stamping & scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace.
We had a good run up from our corner of West Wales & although its nearly 4 hours each way and a long old day, we all had a really fun trip !
It's our favourite of the shows as it focusses on all the paper crafting goodies that we love !

We saw some lovely inspiring samples of stamping & mixed media and many of the various stands were giving demos which were interesting to watch too !
I took some photos to inspire me when I get back to my desk !
Here's a few of them gathered together.
And of course the car was rather heavier on the way home as we had all been tempted by the goodies on sale !

So we now have a fun challenge that we should make something from what we bought and take it along to the next club meeting.

Hope to get to my desk long enough to show you next time !!

Have a lovely Easter !

  1. What a fun day we had and thank you for driving all the way! Have made my heart which was easy but been out in the garden too. Disaster today as new carpet arrived with holes in so no new carpet! Haven 't blogged as a bit stressed xx

  2. Lovely samples. Glad you got there and back safely, that is nearly a whole day in a car...8 hours! But then you had lots to chat about I am sure. Put a pic of my pink hair up for you on my blog. I have planted my winter pansies. Will post pics of them when they flower.

  3. The little green bunnies on your cards are SO cute! Glad you had a great time at AP, and look forward to seeing the fruits of your purchases and labour. Easter blessings, Chris # 31
