Two Cards

My mum and I went to a craft fair in The Dome in Doncaster on Sunday. It was really pants! If you like decoupage and Dufex then you'd be in your element but for us hearty stamps lovers there wasn't a lot to inspire us. It was very small too, we'd gone round all the stalls in an hour! The only other craft fair I've been to is the Great Northern Papercraft Extravaganza in Harrogate and that's fab. We get there for 10am and they are having to shove us out of the doors at 4.30pm because they want to pack up but we're still trying to buy!

In the end we went to another shop in Doncaster that my mum knew of that sold all sorts of things including craft stuff. We bought quite a few bits there and then we called in at Pontefract on the way back to another craft shop and bought some fab stuff from there. One of which was the wording stamp on the card below.
This card I made for my friend Sarah. It's a little late as her birthday was on Saturday. Whoops!
The papers are by Dovecraft.
The lady stamp is by Art Impressions
and the wording stamp is byInkadinkado

The wedding card I did for my friend Meghan who is going to her friends wedding on the 10th May. I thought I'd go with a traditional look.

The paper is by Dovecraft.
The wedding words stamp and the bride stamp are by Lavinia.
The wording at the bottom I did on the computer.

Loving the quote on the birthday card - fab!!

Hate it when you go to craft fairs and they are rubbish :( poor you. But glad you managed to find somewhere else to spend your cash lol!

That sentiment is so very cute! I love the wedding card you made. It's elegant and classic! Very nice! Have a great day!

I've already done a PIF on my blog, so I'm not commenting below, because I don't really have time to do another one! Bye for now!!

I have never managed to get to a craft fair....not sure that I could inflict that on Andy and I tend to be a bit of a lone crafter...I love the decadent lady and such great colours :-)

... Fe should have added that we ended up at Pontefract where she bought the 'How many fingers...' stamp. We just howled at the funny stamps there and could have come away with a barrow full! We laughed so much it was a real tonic and tears streamed down our faces and our jaws ached. The assistant came over and joined in with us too!!!! Won't go into the heater episode eh Fe!??
