My Time to Craft Challenge - It's Raining, It's Pouring!!

The challenge this week at My Time to Craft is 'It's Raining, It's Pouring!' I used this cute Sugar Nellie Stamp of Maggie splashing in a puddle! I coloured her with Pro Markers in two of my favourite colour combos, blue and brown! I added some embossed card stock, the blue card has been sanded to expose the white core. I did a bit of stitching and then finished it with a printed tied ribbon by Et Cetera.
I am so sorry that I've not visited all your blogs so far this week! I did visit some last night and I'm visiting more this afternoon so I will get around to you all eventually!!
On Sunday I went to the NEC with my friend Arline, her mum and friend, and her sister and friend!! We had a great time and everyone came back with bags full of stuff!! I bought mostly stamps, unfortunately there wasn't many Tilda or Nellie ones left, but I did get some Lili of The Valley ones and Little Claire which I'd been after! As well as loads of cheeky OAP stamps!! There was also a stand selling loads of Penny Black stamps so I stocked up on some of those (from the bargain box!!!) Apart from stamps I also bought 24 rolls of DS tape which should last me into the new year (hopefully!) and a few flowers and brads!!
I also saw the Children in Need card and my friend and I spotted Rach's card straight away!! It was a great day, there were lots of crafting 'celebrities' there but I've grown out of being star struck lol!! It was so busy though, you had to have your wits about you and a lot of patience! I told my friend that next year I'm going to take a sign saying 'I need my space' lol!!
Love Becky xx
