Harrogate Spending Spree and a Card

I had a marvelous time at the paper show in Harrogate at the weekend, it was really busy,  I've  never seen it so busy,  anyway here are just a few of my buys

You can tell I'm into Martha Stewert punches.  I have filled my new storage unit with my Tim Holtz inks.   I also went to the bead fair at the showground I bought far too many beads.
And I finally managed to make a card I think he is so sweet.

Mother's Day Card

The picture is not that great and I don't even like the card but never mind, I seem to be having a bad time with everything and anything I make at the moment.  On the bright side my friend runs a small craft outlet business and has been at the Birmingham trade show an she tells me there are some really exciting products about to be launched like Sugar Nellie decoupage.  Maybe that will bring back my mojo.
