Missing in Action!!

I'm going to be missing in action for a few days............busy,busy action............in Birmingham............at the NEC...........a few weeks ago I won 2 tickets to Hobbycrafts and Crafts for Christmas at the NEC..........didn't think I'd be going as Birmingham is not a day trip from the South coast.........but OH suggested we went for weekend and combined it with xmas shopping [from he who hates shopping-though not as much as he hates IKEA!!!]............I didn't need asking twice...........we found a great weekend hotel deal on the net............ going with a couple of friends..........I think this means the boys will swim and then watch sports on super size TV all day Sunday.......but each to his own...............Gill and I will be in stash heaven at Hobbycrafts..............not to mention all the foodie treats at Crafts for Christmas........a perfect combination........all that craftiness.............followed by all the freebie tasting of yummy xmas food...........can't wait...........even though I'll return with a very poorly credit card...........and probably a poorly tummy!!!!!
Only downside will be missing the next 3 prompts for Blogging for Scrapbookers.........which means I'll be behind...........forever probably!!!!!
Sooooooo............a final card before I go..........might be the last for awhile as I'll be too busy drooling over my new stash to use it...........courtesy of Sketch and Stash.......the unused stash is the cutie snowman who got his first inking. He's been slightly coloured with SU watercolour crayons........papers are also SU........Doodlebug glitter brads.......Craft Barn ribbon..........SU punches.
Have a great weekend everybody......I certainly intend to!!!!!!

Thank you for the comments on my blog! I don't think you can really get behind, though. You can just do the prompts when it works for you. Good luck!

I hear you had a great time at the NEC - jealous much! Loving this card and (as always) the fabby paper layering. The snowman is a real cutie too - lovely.
