Its the End of the Show!!!

Ali from Ali Craft and Clare AKA Charliejones2686 
Despite the wind, rain and snow that caused problems for so many trying to get to the Hobbycraft Show at the NEC this weekend we had a great time on the Ali Craft stand.  It was good to catch up with Ali and Ian, to meet every one who took part in my make and take sessions or called by the stand to say hi, and to meet crafters who stopped as they were passing the stand because they recognised my voice!!!!  If I'd have know two years ago I would be where I am today I would never have called my You Tube channel charliejones2686!!!!  

This year our stand was next to Sandra and Andrew AKA House of Zandra .  Do I love Sandra's templates and artwork.  She really is incredibly talented, and it's hard to choose things to indulge in.  I I could buy all of her decoupage sheets and templates.  I settled for just a few, one of which was this gorgeous Giraffe decoupage sheet.  My sister absolutely adores giraffes so he was a definite must have. Although I've been crafting for four days I had to come home and make him into a card so he can wing his way to Cornwall tomorrow.  So George the Giraffe met Graphic 45 and here's the finished card. How cute is he!

Happy crafting everyone :-) C

  2. Morning Clare, Glad you had a brilliant time at the NEC, you and Alison look great on your piccie. It was fantastic seeing you on C&C the other day and brilliant that I had my email read out, and was lucky, lucky, lucky, to win one of your cards, fantastic.
    I, too, love the House of Zandra products and bought a few of them when at the NEC last November, I love Master Giraffe, and your Sister will love him.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
