Milly-May's Easter Bonnet
Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all ok, sadly there are a few of you that are feeling under the weather and I want to send you all a gentle hug 🤗
We are off to Farnborough today, sadly Sue and Pat are both unable to come with us as they both feel poorly, I hope they both start feeling better soon, Brenda and Brenda Little lamb are both going so we will be looking out for them, for me it's the friends that make the day, the shopping is fun too!
Let's get on to today's crafts and shopping and then we have Michele's magazine Review of course.
Milly-May's Easter Bonnet starts us off today, it is absolutely beautiful, Milly-May started with a pretty pink hat and then picked out a selection of Easter themed decorations to add to it, the Roses weren't quite the right colour, that was no problem for Milly-May, she took a brayer and added ink to them! So clever, Cheryl made sure that she was confident with the 'Cool Melt' Glue gun before allowing her to use it, clever little lady used a 'Lolly stick' (why didn't I think of that?).
The most impressive part of this beautiful hat is how Symmetrical it is, Milly-May has shown incredible skill in her planning and decoration of gorgeous Easter Bonnet, please join me in telling her what an amazingly talented crafter she is. I can't wait to see your next project Milly-May, thank you so much for sharing it with us xxx
Karen has shared her Stamperama Shopping with us, I can't wait for your review on that 'Versatile card for crafters' Karen, I haven't seen it before so I can't wait to hear if it lives up to it's name. I love both of the sentiment stamps you bought, I also have the Honey Doo Paint splats, (although I haven't used them yet) I have seen some fantastic Brightly coloured cards made with this set, which would be perfect for this weeks challenge. The Spectrum Noir sparkle pens are great and give an incredibly even coat of glitter to any surface, love the SW Tag set, really versatile set. I'm not sure what the 'Eclipse' thingy is at the top of your photo so I will leave that for you to describe.
Thank you so much for sharing your shopping with us, I can't wait to see what you create with it.
I really didn't buy that much last weekend, partly because I knew I had Farnborough this week too.
I have wanted to try the Alcohol ink Lift off pad for some time, so I picked that up. I went with the gorgeous Aall & Create Masks on my shopping list, I want to use them with my Gelli Plate !
The other thing on my list was Sentiment stamps, I really like the Woodware ones, as there was a good variety on there, the Dragonfly was an impulse buy, because I loved it.!
The last photo is of my Card-I-O collection, after watching the lovely lady demo them and make it look so easy I just couldn't resist, (I didn't find it quite as easy but enjoyed playing with them)!
No doubt I will be adding to this lot today!

Thank's so much Michele for another fantastic review, I will definitely be buying this magazine as I LOVE that free die and stamp set, Ferns are just so pretty! I really like Paula too, there is loads of inspiration in the magazine too.
The 'Cards for Men' piece is really interesting too, Sue and I saw those stamps on so many different stands last weekend, they are perfect for men cards.
Thanks again Michele XXX
