Delicate Blossoms - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
Ali and I had a lovely time at the craft show although the myth that "crafters are lovely people" is sooooo wrong when at a craft show! Good manners are left at the door & it's every woman for herself to barge through the crowds and shove people out the way to get their grubby mitts on what they want, say sorry and quickly move on to shove the next victim out the way & say "sorry" & repeat this move until they have either got everything they want, or run out of money lol. After many "sorry's" we realised this was how things were done when lots of women, lots of money & lots of craft goodies are all in one room & us waiting for people to finish looking & move on & then us squeeze in was wrong as when we got to the front it was boof "sorry" lol. I somehow escaped getting impaled on the hooks for the Memory Box dies by a very, very large lady who seemed to think she could squeeze in the non existent gap between Ali & I & she literally knocked me sideways & sent me staggering, but it was fine because she said the usual insincere "sorry" lol.

  1. Hi Mandy, craft shows remind me of car boot sales, I have been to a couple but won't be going any more, the last one I went to everyone was taking photo's of the handmade cards and were just blocking people who wanted to buy stuff, utter madness.

    Anyway back to your gorgeous card, I love the image and colours used and adore those butterflies, just gorgeous as always. Gaynor xx

  9. Gorgeous card Mandy :-) All the details are just sooo pretty :-)

    I have been to a few craft fairs and yes, thats typical but as I was there mainly to meet other crafty peeps I didn't mind not buying much. I prefer to buy from SSS and have it shipped ,, soo much easier than carrying it back with me :-)
