Hi everyone!

Long time no post from me - AGAIN!!

I have the excuse that I started placement on Monday and already have loadssss to do and last week was spent tying up all the loose ends at uni.

I did get a day off on Saturday though and guess where I went .......

                                  GNPE in Harrogate !!!!!!!

My amazing bf took me all the way to Harrogate only to stand behind me holding my bags for four hours bless him! I spent an immense amount of money that Ive been saving for ages and got some awesome stuff - namely a lot of LOTV stamps (and a few old), some nesties and some FAB craftwork cards stuff! Ive always liked craftwork cards stuff but have never actually bought any but I am now in LOVE  with them and have a wish list of stuff I want from their website lol! I had a brilliant day and felt like a kid again. It was fab knowing that the things that I wanted I could actually buy instead of just looking and drooling!

Anyway enough about my brilliant day at my first ever craft show lol I have another purple card to show you all.

Now I swear I hid of my purple stash but it managed to worm its way on to this card!

The stamp is the ever so cute Ellie from Stamposaurus. I love her to bits! I coloured her with promarkers and gave her a little MS butterfly. I really like the simplicity and white space on this card for some reason!

Anyway I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Well off to do some planning! I get to teach my first lesson next week :s Its Science so I'm making it nice and practical lol!
