Ally Pally goodies and a wedding card

Hello All
Great to have you call again, if you are able to comment, then feel free I value all of your feedback.
Some of you asked for photos of my Ally Pally booty. I forgot to take photos! I was so keen to un pack and rearrange things that it didn't enter my head's the list

Sue Wilson dies Classic - Poinsettia open petal  (I'd already bought the closed petal earlier in the week!)
Sue Wilson dies - Butterflies in Flight
Sue Wilson Embossing folder - Contemporary Poinsettia
CE texture paste - Apple Red - Frosty Mink - polar White 
CE Embossing powder - bright gold
CE - Diamond Snow glitter
CE - Vintage gold card
pearl card - gold
Set of Junior plates for GC (I'm determined to keep one side of the cutting plates purely for white card)
Embossalicious A4 embossing folder - can't remember name but it's flowery!
Small embossing folder with baby's feet - packaging already thrown away by OH!
2x 6x6 card blanks
2 x Doo craft die storage folders
packs of Mei Flower pearls in various colours
Fiskars stamp thingy
and a mask that has stars all over it! I did add it all up and .....I'm not telling It was a lot! That's my craft spend now until next April (but I do have a birthday next month and of course Christmas!)

I'm showing this card today because it was a sort of happy accident. It is all made in Centura Pearl card and a slither of silver mirri board. I've gone off mirri but I think it looks great in small doses The font is a free one, the embossing folder was a buy from April's Ally Pally by Tri-Boss and the hearts are from a Tattered Lace. I used a mini Striplet outside edge to create 3 panels to emboss. I thought I'd calculated that I could place them onto my base card with a small gap in between each one uh huh! I hope you like it because I was very pleased in the end


  1. Hi Karen this is a gorgeous card. You bought some lovely things at Ally Pally I can't wait to see what you do with them. We must have been there at the same time it is a shame we didn't meet. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  2. Karen, no wonder you won't say what you spent - a small fortune I think? Love your beautiful wedding card, and yes that little bit of mirth card works. xxx

  3. Beautiful card & a great amount of craft stash! Who cares what it cost, it's the enjoyment it gives that's important!!!


  4. What a wonderful card Karen it is so elegant. Looks like youhad a good spend at Ally Pally. Enjoy playing with it all.

  6. Hi Karen,
    ooooooo! those Ally Pally goodies sound great.
    Wonderful Wedding card, and a great design too.
    I too don't use mirri half as often as I used to.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
