Well, we girls from our Craft Club were up before dawn on Saturday - and on the road by half 6 !
We headed up the M4 in the rain - damp but no dampened spirits !
We reached Ally Pally by just after 10 and appreciated the free parking & friendly parking attendants & shuttle bus driver.
We always comment how different it is to the NEC which we visit in November - where they charge us £10 per car and are never exactly welcoming !
We quickly set to shopping of course - most of us had a little (!!!) list - but still got tempted by some new goodies !
Here we all are with bags a bulging !
Lynda & I were happy to see fellow desker Helen - also in shopping mode !
So on my desk today is my new stash - mainly stamps, stencils & inks
- with a few Fresco paints to replace ones I have used up !
And I just had time on Sunday - after catching up on chores & a dash round the shops - to make my Nephew's birthday card. I found these Pirate papers (which must have been a freebie with a magazine at some point) and thought they were fun for a boy's card !
Wednesday night we have our craft club meeting - everyone is bringing their bounty from Saturday - so we can all ooh & aah over lovely goodies and even share some of them !
Have a fun crafty week !
