Good Morning!
Wet and Windy again today, so I've time to play..
Went to the NEC on Thursday with two of my bowling friends. Arriving just before Lunch..
How Ruth got us back out and onto the Motorway on the home journey?? Have know idea, the traffic was Horrendous!! Talk of us stopping over night next year.
They both make 'Memory Bears' So left them at the door to do their 'thing'. Whilst I went off to do mine..I know I was on my own lol..but, surprising how many Crafty folks you can talk too. Came back with lots of new goodies, and monies to spare! Was hoping that  House Mouse  would be there, but, unfortunately the stand was missing..

Another Christmas card. Only 6 weeks to go!
Coloured with Copics..These two stamps come from Crafter's Companion.
Papers LOTV .  Embellishments from stash..The little holly from All Occasions was also coloured with Copics and tiny gems from stash.. Spellbinder die used.

Love you cute figgy pudding Chrissy, lovely design and that luscious chocolate coloured bow! Wish I lived near enough to go to the NEC, would definitely have to be an overnighter for me! Maybe next year!

Superb card Chrissie, love the image and the gorgeous bow.
Only been to the NEC once and it was also a nightmare coming home as my BILaw was driving and when possible he was driving like an idiot on the outside lane and he missed the turn off, and till I said something we were nearly in Blackpool.
Not seen daylight yet today.

How cute! I've heard about others going to NEC, where is that? One never knows, maybe I'll go abroad one year as an early Christmas gift from me to me, lol.

Marie B. said...

Lol, super cute and chuckle-worthy! :)

Jacee said...

Fabulous card Chrissy, love the cute image and that bow looks fabulous!

I was at the NEC on that day too, sorry to hear that you had trouble with the traffic, we were OK, we sailed out of there and had a good journey home, we get there when it first opens and then leave early afternoon so that we miss all the traffic on the motorway, I know it can be horrendous at times, we come on the toll road so as to miss it on the way but we always go home on just the ordinary motorway, no rush to get home so might as well save on the toll fee, doing it this way has served us well over the years of going to the show, it works well for us anyway, bet you enjoyed the show though.
