My dream house

Happy Monday everyone!

Hope that you are well and had a lovely weekend. I had the best day ever on Saturday at Westpoint Exeter craft show - WOW! OMG!
I have been there in previous years but not really known what to buy and dare I say it bought things and not used. But I had a list of things this year that I wanted/needed! so I knew what to look for.
I won't show you what I bought as then hubby would know exactly how many pennies I spent Shhhhh! But I did buy some stamps and dusters from Inkylicious which are fab. On previous years the demonstrations have been so crowded that I didn't stop but I got hooked this time!
Some peg stamps from Card-io made their way into my basket and so did a CD Rom called Fabulous Fashion by Katy Sue Designs. I also bought a couple of Penny Black Christmas stamps as I don't have any Christmassy ones. That's enough information for one day but you will see my goodies on future cards.
Here is my card for today:

Items used:
Inkylicious dusters to apply distress inks, Hobby Art Autumn Scene-it stamps, Aqua Markers, Embossing powder, Glossy Accents, Pink Petticoat sentiment, nail heads and Docrafts Wellington paper.

So that's it for today thanks for stopping by - TTFN
