A basket of strawberries

It's been a very busy week and I have spent today flopped out in my chair but I wanted to report on a lovely craft day I went to yesterday.

I'm sure someone would like this box of strawberries.
It was at Doncaster Racecourse (no silly, not on the track, in the hospitality area!) and there were about three hundred crafters there.  It is an annual event famed for its goody bags so everyone was there panting to see what we had received.  It was no disappointment - stamps and dies by Tattered Lace, big packs of all sorts of adhesives, paper, card, embellishments and plenty of stuff to make weep a women who is tying to declutter.  Don't worry, no need to pass the tissues, I'm stronger than that.

And someone else would like to play with this card 
Anyway, we made five cards and to be honest some of them were disappointments but it was a great day out anyway.  These two were my favourites so I thought I'd share them with you.

  1. I am always impressed by cards which have sliders, or pop-ups or other 'mechanical' devices. The strawberry one is fantastic!

  2. The strawberry card is a feast for the eyes, that is one clever card.

  3. I've never heard of an event for cardmaking. Interesting that there is something for all hobby enthusiasts. Stunning cards-lucky recipients.

  4. Impressive cards! Sounds like the goody bag was well worth the trip!I am glad you had a good time.

  5. What a super way to spend a day.

  6. The strawberries are so cool! Sounds like a VERY fun day.
