Off to Ally Pally!

This is a scheduled post as I will, well and truly be on my way to Ally Pally when this goes live. I enjoy ths show vry much and to see the designers work up close and personal and because it's run/sponsored by Hochanda, some of my favourite designers/companies will be there - Creative Expressions, Sue Wilson, Clarity stamps, Ali Reeve to name but a few. I'm not sure what I want to buy this time. I just love walking around and "ooh-ing and ah-ing" at all of the goodies I have a few ideas and a bit of a Wish List. I'm sure lots of things will jump into my basket!

My card today is a card I made a couple of years ago for our IT Manager. He is a similar age to me and even though he enjoys the job,  he often "wishes" the technology would "slow down"

I hope you all have a lovely week end. If you go to Ally Pally I hope you have fun (I know I will!)

  4. Hi Karen,
    what a very briliant card, and your design is really fab and so brilliant.
    I learnt to type on a very old typewriter many moons ago, and in those days you had to plonk the keys as they were not as easy as keyboards are today.
    My DH said when I first started using my computer keyboard why are you plonking at the keys there is no need.
    As they say old habits die hard.
    Today I do press the keys a little lighter though.
    Enjoy Ally Pally oh I do wish I could go one year.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  5. Hi Karen this is a stunning card. I hope you bought loads of crafty goodies. Take care. Hugs Jackie
