No pennies left

Hi all, yes I did meet up with The Scottish Posse and yes Jenny I am one too. Lovely chat with the girls and made tentative arrangements to join them for their trip to NEC Birmingham later in the year, look out AngThe Ducks Doodahs (Tales from a happy crafter ))and ChristineChristine's Cards and Crafts) I heard about your shenanigans .  Also look out KateI Love Socks and Cards!!) I am joining them on their visit to you too hopefully.

My card today is another wedding one, requested for a lady's granddaughter, she wanted bling but did not know the colour theme for the wedding so we went for red.  She loved it, just waiting on her granddaughters reaction.

I won't go into detail with this card as it is much the same ingredients as in the past really must find a different style that the ladies appreciate as I am getting fed up making a variation on a theme, the ladies all adore this style of card.

Well I had a wonderful walk around the stalls today but feel they are getting less and less every year, what's with Scotland that the exhibitors do not want to come up to show their wares.  I bought some A3 card and 7" cards and envelopes from Anna Marie Designs, some chipboard rings hearts and oblong pieces , red double sided tape and a few more bits from the "Everything a Pound" stall, adhesive pearls from Mei Flower and a big bottle of Cosmic Shimmer PVA Glue, don,t know where that was from, some polystyrene rings for a project I saw on Remnant King's stall, some stencils and brushes for another project I saw demonstrated, to be revealed is I ever get round to doing them.

Now I am exhausted ready for bed.  Before I go as soon as I arrived home from Glasgow, Christopher, adopted grandchild from next door, was waiting for me in a tizz.  He had a project to be handed in by Monday, making a clock, and he had only received the project from his teacher late Friday afternoon.  Well long story from him, swimming on Friday evening, out with his dad today and on a school visit tomorrow and how was he going to fit this project in.  I sat him down and asked what was required and was given the low down so we set to work cutting out circles, numbers and clock hands and he got stuck up with glue trying to place the numbers on the clock but we got there and he is away happy that we achieved something.  His parting words were "I don't know what I would do without you", I love him to bits, he appreciates everything we do and I do miss having grandchildren up here.

Take care now off to bed after Casualty won't take long before I am dead to the world.

  1. Great card, I love that shape,you make quite a lot like that and I keep meaning to get some .... Still not got any.
    One "happy chappy" glad you managed to help him out of his "tizz" makes you feel so good when they appreciate the help.
    Great day, like you I will not need much rocking tonight. Waiting for John bringing me a cuppa then it's bed for me.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend

  2. beautiful card Wilma, love this design, gorgeous embossing and beautiful flowers.
    glad you enjoyed your day.

  3. Great card Wilma. Glad you enjoyed the show - If you think there are fewer exhibitors at your show you want to see the pathetic shows that we get here in Northern Ireland. They are not worth the expense of going to which is such a pity.

  4. Fab card Wilma and glad you had a good day I am also going to the NEC meeting up with Christine and hopefully Ang and Sue P (Planetsusie) is also going so hope to meet you too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! would be fab lol have a great sleep sounds like the little guy had fun huggles Sue xxx

  5. Sounds like a fun day. xxx

    Gorgeous card too. xxx

  6. Good morning Wilma, I hope you got a good nights sleep? Your card is beautiful and I love the shape of these cards. Just going off out with the dog for his walk and I think it might be back to bed for me - I have got a sore throat and the start of a cold, I think the air on the bus to the show and back hasn't helped, will see after I get some fresh air. Have a good day crafting. Hazel

  7. Morning Wilma,
    Love the shape of your card, very unusual love it.

  8. Stunning wedding card Wilma...Yes I agree with you about craft fair, Farnborough seem to get less and less every year and so does Exeter they are the two I usually go to... still I think I have enough craft staff to last me for another 10 years...



  9. Hello Wilma, beautiful Wedding card, love the unusual design and the gorgeous dies.

    Pleased you had a super day with the girls, and it would be great to see you up here to.

    Your wee lad from next door sounds a little gen, glad you could help him out, hugs Kate x

  10. Really lovely card Wilma. Your little neighbour sounds a great little chap! Well, I can't wait for November now for more fun! Mind you, I don't know why Ang and I got the blame - we were led astray I can assure you!!!! Hugs Christine xx

  11. Hi Wilma,
    another of your very beautiful cards. I do love these shape cards you make.
    No wonder they were pleased with it.
    Sounds like the Posse did lots of rounding up with their hard earned pennies, as they were soooooo tired. I bet it was all that girly laughing that really wore you out. lol.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
