I'm Back..........WOYWW and winner of Card Candi

 Hi everyone, I haven't been able to post from Frankfurt, but I am back with lots of photos to show you over the next few days of all the gorgeous samples that were at the show. 


I drew a winner of the Card Candi last night, and the name that came up was 


CyndiU

Congratulations, email me with your address and I will get your goodies in the post

Joining in again with the fun over at Julia Dunnit's blog for WOYWW, well, there's a whole heap of stuff on mine, unpacked from the suitcase and ready to put away. I don't think these will last long though - bags of delicious chocs, and some honey and cranberry stirring spoons, a present from Diane (Capadia) 





and here's one of the make and takes I did, a cute fish candle holder, the fish is covered with fabric.......


and I found these lacy squares in a little shop, they are plastic, but look just like linen, so I can see them finding their way onto a card very, very soon......


and here are some of the really fabulous eyelets I picked up as samples from the show, look at those teensy little coathangers, I have some ideas on using these as well...........


I did try very hard at the next stand to get a sample, well we can all use something ornamental can't we? Not able to put him in my suitcase, so have to make do with a photo....shame!


and here are just a few of the things that caught my eye on the first day, rosettes made from cupcake papers.....


and gorgeous balls made from doilies.........




and how would you like a whole scraproom fitted out with eco-friendly recycled cardboard? It was amazingly sturdy, and the chair was really comfortable. The company was from Hungary..........





They even had cardboard vases to put your paper flowers in......


Here are Diane and Mandy, tucking into breakfast on the tube, on the way to the show.......



but we did have rather nicer food for dinner..........



I need to edit my photos, will post lots of inspiration for you tomorrow

My goodness--so much to look at here! I'm a huge brad fan. And you can't go wrong with doilies either.

Brenda B said...

Great photos, looks like a fantastic trip. Probably a good thing that *certain* samples couldn't fit into your case! My American card magazine has a flower tutorial this month using cupcakes too. Love the cardboard furniture but I bet it costs an arm and a leg!

JoZart said...

Looks like you had fun at CHA, I'm so sad I can't be there this year. I too have some of those brads from last year but they're too cute to use!!
BTW.... the ice disc was my daughter's find from pinterest. I can't make a claim for the idea. Wouldn't last long in the California sun!

Oh, looks like you had a real fun time! The desserts are making my mouth water. Not sure about the bloke!

The cardboard furniture is amazing though - I'd be up for it but I don't think it would take the punishment I'd give it!

Thanks for stopping by....
