Spring flowers and Ally Pally pics


Well I had a brilliant weekend. Had such a great time at Ally Pally and bought lots of lovely new stash, (see below for photos). It was so good to meet up with blogging friends too. Sunday we went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour which was also brilliant. I thoroughly recommend it, so interesting. Really want to see all the films again now. Good job I have them all.

I bought one of the gorgeous new sketch pads from LOTV last week, such great value, 30 images to colour for £6. I bought the vintage boys one at the show too. I love Spring flowers and when I have some daffodils I usually put them in a blue jug so that's what I went with for this card. I was inspired by the colours of daffodils, hyacinths, polyanthus and tulips.
Image - LOTV
Medium - Copics
Papers - Paermaina Persimmon
Sentiment - LOTV
Flowers - Wild Orchid
Leaves - MS punches
Butterfly - Cheery Lynn (sprayed with gold spray and sparkle)
Other - doily

So here is what I bought on Saturday.

Stocking up on basics. I got all that kraft card on the right for £6.


Fab toppers, LOTV sentiment and some masks. Never used them before so looking forward to trying them.


Lovely new dies. Can't wait to play.


Lovely new goodies.

I had no time to play yesterday but it is all put away. I need to find time to catch up on blogging now.

Thanks for visiting whilst I have been away xx
