Playing with my new stash

I've had a lovely couple of days away. We drove up to Birmingham Wednesday lunchtime and stayed overnight and then I went off to the NEC yesterday with Lynsey and Lisa and hubby drove down to Gaydon Motor Museum. We all had a lovely time. I had kept some Christmas money and had been saving a bit most weeks so that I could get lots of lovely new stash at the show. I met several blogging and Facebook friends, some of whom I hadn't met before. It was so lovely to meet people and I'm only sorry we couldn't chat longer but we all wanted a good look round the show.

You'll be seeing lots of my new stash over the next few days and weeks I'm sure and this card is no exception. I absolutely had to use this fabulous multi layered sketch from Christmas Challenges with Sketches so I was very pleased that one of the new stamps I bought on the LOTV stand was a Christmas one. Everything used on this card with the exception of the Marianne snowflake die and white glitter card are new. Bo Bunny Snowflake papers which are gorgeous, LOTV image and sentiment, doily coloured with chalk and part of a Memory box die. I've coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and added glitter to her wings and used a Sakura Bluestar pen.

Other challenges:
Incy Wincy Things with wings
Creative Inspirations Anything Goes
Scrapbook Sisters Anything Goes
Crafty Purple Frog Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday Anything Goes
I could have spent all my money in the first half an hour buying Memory Box dies and LOTV stamps but restricted myself. I did pick up 3 of the new stamps and 2 from the last 2 releases. There's lots of dies left on my wish list. Here is my lovely new stash.


I also bought some stuff for my next candy. In the meantime don't forget if you want to enter my candy please add a comment to the post above. Every post you comment on between 20th and 31st March will gain you another entry.

I managed to do some commenting whilst we were on the road on Wednesday, thanks to my IPad. However I fell behind with it all now so will catch up with you as soon as I can.
