My Nec goodies and a card

Yesterday i went to the nec with a crafty friend of mine angela, she hasnt got a blog or anything but has a fabulous crafty space and jumped at the chance to come along when i told her i was going to the nec, as usual i had an amazing time, i bought loads as id saved alot of pennies up from sales of my cards etc, but even with this fab lot i came home with £65 still lol, dont tell hubby im saving it lol
Here is a close up of my fave bits, isnt it just gorgeous?what a sight dont ya think, i love it lol, i came across a embossing folder that has happy birthday written all over it in small text and it was only £2.99 so i had to get that too, the deep edge martha stewart punch was only £9 and the other one £10.99, plus one of those nesties were a mere £10, of course i had to visit lily of the valley...they are fast becomming one of my most faves along with my maggies/gorjuss girls and greeting farm stamps, We walked s0 much my feet were killing me, and during the day i met up with rozzy and maxine from trimmie which was lovely, we had a chat but it was sooo busy we couldnt for too long :-(
Any way i guess you dont want all the inns and outs do you lol,
so here is a card ive made with a new kanban stamp set i bought,isnt he fabulous, the papers are dovecraft basics and i used a dark purple for the matting and layering, lots of silver stickles to give some bling, and used the matching kanban sentiments and thats it, no embellies at all, i didnt think it actually needed it??? what do you think?

Here is a slightly closer view of it,
I would like to enter this card into a few challenges which i think it fits into,

i love promarkers-glitter and glitz/passion for promarkers-a day at the zoo

Perfect card, and I agree with Theresa it doesn't need anything else.

I hope you soaked your feet and are now fully recovered from the NEC, what a fun day you had by all accounts, and we all know a large part of the fun of crafting is acquiring the goodies in the first place!

Thanks for joining us at Dream Valley this time.
