Sing a Christmas Carol and the NEC

It's my challenge this week at Winter Wonderland and I have set "Sing a Christmas Carol" This is another image someone stamped for me a while ago and I've never used before, but I'm sure this one is a SN image. Papers are Papermania Winter's Tale. I used the MS zigzag punch again, added some flowers, brads and Sizzix cut leaves, some gems and corners for the lovely sketch at Sketch and Stash. I hope you'll join in the singing this week. The lucky winner will win 4 digis from Pink Gem.

What a great time I had at the NEC yesterday with my friend Lynsey. We met Leann and Sara on the Crafter's Companion stand and had a chat with 2 lovely customers, helping them to spend their money. They were so complimentary about our cards when Leann told them we are on the CC DT. We almost felt famous for a moment, lol! (From left to right Lynsey, Sara, Leann, me).

We were lucky enough to get some fo the new LOTV stamps which are gorgeous. You can see some of my cards on the LOTV inspirations blog here. I got home about 9pm last night and I've been out all day today so my stash is still everywhere. I've bought some new things to try out, embossing powder and a heat gun and some Aquamarkers. I'm now going to put it all away and then do a bit of blogging. I've just been checking the challenges and found I've won the MAWTT challenge, thanks girls. Have a great weekend everyone. We're off the to see The Nutcracker ballet at the theatre tomorrow night.

Oooh Marianne, what a happy 'lot' you look! Would have loved to have been there this year but am going to the USA for 3 weeks at the end of November (and that needs saving for!!!) So pleased that you had a nice time and will look forward to all the new things you will be making!! Jill x
