Pictures from Ally Pally and some challenges

Hi everyone. Hope you are enjoying this glorious weather. After last week trying to repair leaking roofs, this week we were pruning trees. So not a lot of time for crafting!!
I was at Ally Pally on Saturday. It was a lot quieter than The NEC or Olympia but we still sold a stack of Promarkers. I'm beginning to feel like the Promarker Queen!!!!!
Here are a few pics from the day, including my husband Michael ( he who hates all things crafty!!!) who was actually taking money for items and getting on very well with all the ladies. Hmmmm a bit of a charmer I think! He is with Sue who works on the Hotshotcrafts stand too.
It was great to meet up with Scrappymax. Hi Max. Hope you enjoyed the day. I will email you soon. There were a few others that I missed, Brenda and Lynne. Hope you both had a good day.
I did manage to buy, in one of my 10 minute- dash to the stand I like- buy what I want- get back again - moments, 2 LOTV stamps. One of them is posted here for some challenges.
Well I have a card lesson now and I am showing my ladies how to colour with distress inks. The cards below have been coloured this way. This is the first time I have coloured with them.
Speak to you soon
Love Sarah XXX
