Challenges and new stash

Firstly here's my entry into the latest challenges at the following:

I've used these super cute images from Teddybo which are a joy to colour and work with. I've used some new dies (see rest of post below) and some yummy papers from basis grey, the image is coloured with promarkers, added some buttons, flowers and tiny bit of pretty ribbon. Hope you like? Sorry about the quality of the photo of the card my batteries have gone in my camera so I had to use my mobile and it's rubbish for photos.

Anyway I've had a lovely morning out with my Mum, I won, via the local radio (Thank you Midwest) tickets to the Stitch & Creative show being held at the Bath & West showroom ground in Shepton Mallet. So check out the new stash, I love the shows you always get good deals on things, 2 packs of 12 promarkers for £24 and 5 distress ink pads for £17. Loads of yummy ribbons and buttons, also 2 Nellie multiframes for £15. Not bad!
I'm a bit disappointed at the lack of choice in designer papers there and very few stamp companies with the sort of thing I like, just fussy I suppose? I really wanted to buy some more basis grey papers but didn't see any. I suppose the guys that sell that sort of stuff go to the really big shows, well come to Somerset more often and I'll spend my hard earned pennies with you. Anyway we were done in just over a hour and half and by then I'd run out of money and was getting sore from being pushed and shoved in the crowds. Mum had a good old haul of knitting yarns and also got some bargains so she was happy. We filled our faces with a yummy scrummy cheese, potato and onion pasty and then went home.
Check out the photo's of my new goodies.
