Harrogate Papercrafts Extravaganza & Eamon

Good Evening All,
Had a great weekend with my brother-in-law Eamon, he came down to visit us from Darlington where he lives just now.
Saturday we all went to the Harrogate Papercrafts Extravaganza show, I say we I mean me, Ewan and Eamon went for a nice walk around Harrogate while I spent time looking and buying new crafting goodies and chatting away!.
I purchased a few new Penny Black Rubber Stamps, fantasy 3880K, Adornment 3996J and Joy, hop 3028F and I am having a play with them tonight using Dew Drop ink pads and stardust stickles. Will post some photos later.
I also couldn't stop myself from buying this new punch from EK success, it's called the binding edge! I just seem so into punches just now, I think it's because the designs & technology has goten better and you can use them with card. My faves are the Martha Stewart ones, mmmm delish.
While at the show bumped into the lovely Kirsty Wiseman http://www.limegreenbogiegirl.blogspot.com/, she is adorable, I haven't see her for ages so was great to catch up.
Watch out for her on QVC at the next craft day, she will be showcasing her new Patti Picklissious CD.
Saturday night was a bit crazy, unlike the stay at home couple we now are, Eamon encouraged us to go clubbing till 4am. Sunday was a bit of a waste, sleeping in and hanging around the house, although sometimes that's just what one needs!
Anyway me thinks it's time of Holby City, really the only program I watch regular apart from X Factor & SCD.
So tomorrows the big day, I'll be drawing the Blog Candy name tomorrow and someone with be having a fab weekend with there new stash!
Catch you later,
Love Sarah xxx

You are so lucky being able to go to Harrowgate last weekend. T'was a bit far for me to travel. Love PB stamps with a bit of a soft spot for the hedgies especially and aren't Dew Drop Inks just fab? I ordered a set of them a while ago from QVC and just love them to bits.
Used to enjoy lazy Sundays, especially ones spent in jim-jams, getting stuck into bacon and egg rolls. BC of course ... Before Children =)

Glad you had a good time. LOVE the stamps, have a weakness for PB myself (- well most rubber stamps!!!) I use Dewdrop inks nearly all the time - love them! xxx
