Having a Play with my Harrogate Goodies , and a Little Humphrey gorgeousness

Morning all, I have been having a play with my fabulous new goodies I bought at Harrogate, yes I know I was there to work  but I just had to have a quick look round,  and you know me a look turns into a must buy!!!!!!, I actually didn’t visit many stalls as my first stop was  The Hobby House stand and as usual Jill had the stand looking awesome with an absolute endless supply of must haves, and I spent more than three quarters of my budget on her stand.

My first buy on The Hobby House stand was 4 lovely Nellie Snellen  stamps, this one is Dawn006, sweet isn’t it and the other 3 are just as gorgeous.  A Couple of weeks ago I was sent the New Fleximarker Pens from Letraset to try but have had so much commissioned work that I have not had time to try them until now, I am in love, these pens are just the tops, the pastel colours are perfect and the nibs!!!!!!! do I need to say more.    I have used a mixture of Fleximarkers and Copics to colour this image. (Colours below).   The papers are from Nitwits Collections , Material Flowers,  Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch, Self Adhesive Gems and Doily are all more of my Hobby House Buys.

Did you catch the Humphrey Pick of the Day on Ideal World Last Night,  if you didn’t don’t worry ’cos there will be lots of shows on today, Crafters Companion  have pulled all the stops out with this fantastic Christmas Collection, 2 CDs and 2 sets,  of 6 stamps  I had the pleasure of working with this gorgeous collection and just loved every minute of it, even though I didn’t make many cards due to lots of background work I was working on at the time.

Here is one of them, it was coloured with Spectrum Noirs and the papers were from the twin CD Rom.  Swirls are a Doo Hickey Die, and Snowflakes are also from a  Doo Hickey Die set called Mistletoe, both of which can be purchased from Crafts U Love
I am not really one for CDs but I think the papers on this set are stunning and will be so useful for Christmas I know you will be seeing more on my Christmas this year. 
Thanks for visiting and don’t forget you still have until Midnight tonight to join in my Lili of the Valley Candy just scroll down to the post below.
