To be fair, she was sooooo well behaved it worried me a bit - if you don't count the attempt to pull over a display :)
At one point I did make the mistake of allowing Mrs A off the reins to trot off to the loo. When I followed a few minutes later she'd only disappeared! So, I went and waited in our agreed 'meeting place', chewing my lip and waiting for all h*ll to break loose in the building. Not so, an excited little Playmate appeared squeaking with delight saying she'd found a stall selling off packs of cards and also A4 sized card at £2 a shot - wahoo, that got me running I can tell you! Sure enough, there were some great deals and I also stocked up (as you do!). Err, that was round about lunchtime and with no cloakroom to deposit stuff we spent the rest of the afternoon lugging VERY heavy bargains round.
Anyhow, it was a fabulous day and we had a great time! What was such fun as well was buying (say) six for the price of five toppers sheets and splitting them, several times over needless to say!
And last week I was stunned to receive a package out of the blue through the post from Hunkydory, I'd only gone and won a load of goodies from Quick Cards Made Easy magazine :)
It was everything from their 'Shimmering Watercolours' range, tons of card stock, toppers, inserts, ribbons - and even a load of sticky pads - the list is too long to go through.
So, I just made this little card:
It just explodes with flowers! Not brilliantly made and I've since done some trimming but I was like a kid with a new toy wanting to try the technique out :)
And the card I'd sent into QCME? It was this 'snippets' Bargello one from Week 64 in the Playground:
Just goes to show, if you don't enter then you're not in with a chance.
Thank you again Mrs A for a really fun day! And now I need to try and find out just why there's a parrot in the Playground :(
