I haven't had much time for crafting this week as I have been busy making items for Girls Brigade for their craft fair in a few weeks time. I also went to the craft show in Belfast on Thursday.  This is my first time going to this one as I normally would only go in March/April time.  Anyway the first stand was Crafty Devils and I was looking for a couple of Martha Stewart edge puches (picket fence and zig zag).  I have seen these on some cards and really like them.  He was selling these punches for £9.50, the deep edge for £12.00 and around the page for £17.99.  Quite a few people were asking was this a misprint but he said he was in dispute with another exhibitor so he cut his prices.  At these prices I got a few more edger punches.  May not use them yet but at least they are on the shelf gathering dust with everything else. Got some ribbon, pearls/gems, foam tape and double sided tape.  Quite enjoyed it.  Also was the first time I went on my own as the girls were at school.

Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a good weekend.  Weather dry and sunny with a slight nip in the air today.  Not complaining as we had gale force winds and rain on Thursday evening. Hopefully get another card made over the weekend.
