Angel Tilda & NEC Update



Happy Sunday everyone. Well what a fantastic day I had yesterday at the NEC, I didn't spend much money and the money I did spend did me no good as somehow I lost the Bag containing my Mini Magnolias and Nesties, can you believe it!!!!! But this disaster was made up for by meeting so many lovely crafters who I feel as if I have known forever. There were too many to mention individually, and I would be so worried about leaving anyone out of the list but just say we took over the conservatory in Witherspoons and I laughed so much that my face is still hurting today, cannot wait to meet up with everyone again, I had the best day EVER!!!!!!!
Thanks to all of you, love you all MWAH!!!!!!!



Am a bit tired today but managed to make this little Tilda Card, I wanted to get it done quickly so I could remember all the fantastic tips I got from the wonderful Kim on how she uses Stickles on her flowers and around her cards. I have just noticed Tilda looks as if she is about to topple over, think she wasn't such an angel last night and had a tipple or two. As usual Tilda has been coloured with Distress Inks, the Paper is Magnolia and I have used the Silent Night Text stamp from Magnolia again, I has distressed all the edges with vintage photo inks.



Now I am off to try a bit of jewellery making, Dear Dawny P gave Rach and I a quick lesson, I cannot believe she got her pliers out right in the middle of the hall amongst the thousands of visitors and showed us how to coil wire what a darling she is, thanks sweetie, lets hope I can remember your instructions

UPDATE on my lost bag of goodies, it has been found!!!!!!!, I was sitting next to dear Caz at lunch and amongst all the fun and laughter our bags must have got mixed up and Caz took mine home by mistake. You can imagine how grateful I am that it has been found and Caz is sending it off to me thank you hun, what a darling you are MWAH xxxx

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx

Andie's Space said...

Hi Jacqui,
I so love this Tilda, she's just so sweet. What a shame you lost your stash. But at least you met up with loads of lovely people. In truth, I think it's the friends that we make rather than our creations themselves, that give us most pleasure from our hobby. Sadly, I could not make it to the NEC as I had hoped, but I am already saving up for next time!
Big Hugs for you!
Andie xx

This is so pretty, Jacqui. I don't mind if Tilda has been a bit naughty - she's a little darling! I love your little flowers - they are perfect. So glad you had a nice day out and found your stuff.
