So sad

Hi blogworld

So how's we all doing then?  I'm a very happy bunny as I had a lovely day out on Sunday, well mostly anyway!, at the craft fair and have brought myself lots of new goodies.  The spending carried on until Monday morning as some companies were missing and I still had things on my to get list.  You will start to see the new things trickling through soon - there's even some on this card!!

I've had the post part of my spend arrive this morning so I'll take photos and do a sharing post later today and explain what it was that annoyed me on Sunday!!  Be prepared for one of Sarah's sagas ;-)

The so sad part is that Pollycraft is closing down, I will really miss Paula's digis - they are absolutely brilliant I've already done one mega bundle deal and I'm very verrrry tempted to go back and do another - but I wouldn't even mind missing out on the mega deals if she wasn't closing!   Then I went and missed the last challenge, I'd thought there'd be one to the last days of the shop but last weeks' was it and I missed it - pah!

I had my image all ready to go, but just ran out of time.  I then saw Paula doing a Linky Party over at Pollycrafts blog so I thought I'd link up with that.

Here's me card:

Side view to get the depth:

I used:

Pollycraft - Swings and Slides: Lollipop: (which was my prize for being a Pollycraft Favourite - I was sooooo chuffed when I was picked and I was picked twice!)  It's coloured with my Promarkers and chalked for the background.

First Edition:
Love Letters (new!)
Song Bird

Nesties for the image and circles
C.C. Designs - Teardrop Border

Everything else:
Buttons from stash
Stickles glitter glue

I've been frantically making cards first half of this week as the second half is busy.  Then next week it's half-term here and that will be chaos, plus we've got people in the holiday let.  Oh, wot a busy life I leads!!!!



A challenge, or two:

Sketch Saturday: Week #209

Oldie but a Goodie challenge: Anything Goes - everything except for one piece of patterned paper and the image are more than six months old.

I love Promarkers: Challenge #119 - Use a Digi

Hi Sarah,
You and I might have stood shoulder to shoulder on sunday without even knowing it! I assume you were at the showground craft fayre! As another Lincolnshire liver I have to say it does brighten up your day no end when it comes, roll on October 21sr I say.
Your card is gorgeous and I love the colouring and your whole colour scheme too, I agree about it being a pitty PollyCraft are closing down, especially when they have images of this quality eh!
Anyhoo, Good Luck and hope to see you again at I ♥ ProMarkers again very soon.
Take Care,
