Shepton Mallet Show and Gary's Birthday card


Another lovely day here in somerset, I am surprised that the weather has stayed reasonably good for the last month.

On Sunday I went to the show at the Bath and West showground at Shepton Mallet, It was the usual a small show in the showering pavilion, ( showerings was the company who made the Babycham drink, the factory today is still making Babycham, along with cider, which Somerset is well known for). There was some stalls missing this year and of course a few new ones. Every year it seems to get smaller, which is very disappointing seeing this is a local show and a show case for firms to come and sell us craft items. It is great to see new products and new ideas, unfortunately I don't feel there was as many people this year for a Sunday I could walk around very easily with no pushing and shoving.

Vernon my Hubby brought me three sets of pro makers, Spring, Autumn and skin tones. I have never used pro makers, although I have heard so much about them. I saw on pinkgem-janets blog some tutorials about pro makers so I will having a long look at her blog and find out some tips about using pro makers. Vernon also brought me three large stamps, I want to make scenes, these stamps should make some lovely scenes for cards. I already have some ideas which I will be playing with over the next few weeks, so keep your eyes open as I intend to do some new things.

Now for my latest card, it was Gary's birthday (our step son) over the weekend, so this is his birthday card, he was before he started going blind into cars and motor bikes.

It is very hard to make a card for someone who can't see very much, this image I got from the paper-craft-tutor, for a male card I felt it was a great image with matching backing paper. I hope he liked his card.

Have a nice day
