A huge NEC stash - Just Magnolia week 81-Sketch by Donalda + Cute Card Thursday-Anything Goes

Good morning everyone how are you all, well and happy I hope... did you miss me, bet some of you didn't even notice I was gone lol...I had a fantastic time and yyyyoooohhhooooo to all the wonderful crafter's I met at the NEC I will so be going to the next one, the NEC is huge and modern and Wetherspoons was brill for eating and meeting too, and my wonderful Phil came with me would you believe, everyone was astounded at his patience and support, he really is a darling he even drove me from Newcastle and back again hows that for dedication...right my card for today is for our new challenge over at Just Magnolia challenge, which is a lush sketch by our wonderful teamie Donalda, I used one of the new Tilda's called Tilda with Christmas ribbon I bought at the NEC coloured with Distress inks, I must admit to be being a bit miffed that Magnolia didn't turn up at the show but I managed to find some anyway so got over it fast lol...you can buy her from Bunny Zoe's Crafts too though...the stunning papers are Basicgrey but I haven't a clue which ones I'm afraid...isn't this ribbon just stunning, I found a teeny stall selling American style bits and pieces and bought three rolls of these amazing hessian type ribbon spools...the sentiment is from my mate Liza, Im entering this for the Cute Card Thursday challenge Anything Goes...I hope you like it

now how huge is this stash I bought at the NEC and underneath this lot is a Hougie board and a huge amount of papers which you cant see...you know whats even more shocking is this isn't all of it, I bought goodies for my candy which I cant show you yet and a bag full of goodies while I was in Newcastle too...the massive lump at the front is all ribbons, poor Jane had to almost drag me away from the ribbons, now that's one serious addiction I have lol...sssshhhhhh dont tell her but I sneaked back to them the next day when she wasnt there...have a wonderful day everyone and when you have time hop on over to Just Magnolia to see the amazing work of the rest of our DT...have a fantastic day everyone

Hi Mina. Beautiful card. Love the colour combination. Cute Tilda image and the ribbon is gorgeous. What an amazing amount of stash you bought. I got some punches at the show in Belfast yesterday - Crafty Devils were selling Martha Stewart punches for £9.50, what a bargain. He was having a dispute with another exhibitor so slashed his prices. Hope you have a nice weekend. Donna

I absolutely love how you did the white clothes on Tilda. It turned out so pretty Mina. What colors did you use around the edges. It is so soft yet it pops off of the page. Wow girlie it looks like you had some fun! So glad you had a fun trip.
Hugs,
Pam

Annika said...

I think it's one of my favorite cards from yours - I can't even explain why. Maybe it's the soft warm blues and very delicately coloured Tilda. Absolutely adore it anyway!!
And oh so jealous of your new goodies, especially that butterfly punch!!
