Mickey Mouse & a little spend or 2!

Some of you know I went to the max papercraft show in Sunderland yesterday, the hall was less than half full due to the heavy snowfall but there was some lovely stuff there aswell as some highly overpriced stuff! But both Jane and I had a good time noseying around! 

I bought the most beautiful die, which is just perfect for my childrens christmas cards, ok so I know it isn't to everyones taste, but we are a Disney mad household, even OH who is 35 and myself at 28 still sit and watch disney films! Anyway I couldn't wait to use it so here are our childrens christmas cards. 



I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges

I used glitter card for the shape of the die, which is harder to see on the pink but still looks great! then mounted it on normal cardstock! I LOVE these cards and this die! ... another couple of christmas cards off the to do list! 


Here is a couple of pictures of what  I bought yesterday at the craft show. 



Also last week (wednesday) I met up with Jane again, and we stopped for a quick cuppa before heading to the papermill shop to see what closing down bargains they had. To be honest the shelves were pretty much bare, but I did manage to grab a couple of things. Like penny black stamps down from £12.99 to £4.99 and a couple of other bits and pieces. 




Thats it for today ... off to watch The little Mermaid with my kiddies, then out to build a snowman! ... School is closed today!
