Ally Pally and Pumpkin Emma
Well, what a fantastic weekend I have had ! It was my first time ever time at Ally Pally and my goodness did I enjoy it ! The shopping was fantastic but the highlight of my life was meeting these wonderful girls who, like it or not, are now my friends for life !!! Here we all are having the time of our lives.

I would like to say a huge, huge thank you to "Babe" Kim, Kim and Chris for making our day so special and one I shall remember for the rest of my life. This isn't the end though, oh no, we shall be hitting the NEC in Birmingham in November so if you fancy meeting up with us then please email any one of us and we can arrange a rendevous ! We will have an extra buddy joining us in November and that will be my gorgeous friend Tara who sadly couldn't make it to Ally Pally.
On Friday, to steady my nerves and ease my excitement I made a card from some new yummy CC Design stamps.
The DP's are from a kit called "Harvest Time" designed by Krista of "Designs by Krista"
The whole image I made took some time and for me, skill ! There was a lot of masking involved ! I used the Sugarplum Spooky Scenery set which consisted of the fence, moon, cloud, bat and grass (and also has others which I didn't use) and also Pumpkin Emma. I coloured it all with ProMarkers with exception to the dark sky which is black soot distress ink.
The ribbon is from my stash.
The leaves are a Quickutz die.
I had loads of fun making this card although the image turned out rather large !
Early night for me tonight. I haven't slept properly for 3 nights, the first two with anticipation and last night because I had so many ideas and thoughts going round in my head ! I think I shall just zonk tonight !!!
Thank you for your visit and for any comments you leave, they mean so much.
