Quixotic Challenges DT on a Friday!

Evening all:) Hope everyone's well! Oooo it's been gorgeous here the past few days! Doesn't it make you feel good when the weather's nice? I've ordered some new Summer clothes so hopefully the weather will stay nice long enough for me to wear some of em:) Bit late again this week, been another busy one but hey it reminds you to join in right?

So this week at Quixotic Challenges the challenge is to use Word Art as your main focus rather than an image. Quite a fun one for those of us who always use images and are used to colouring. The sentiment I've used is by Paper Makeup Stamps-they have the most gorgeous word art:) The papers I've used are from the new scrummy Capella Range which you get from Elaine here. Did you get your Roll Call kit? Ooo I did-such good value-haven't had time to ink those cuties up yet though! I'm going to enter this card over at Basic Grey Challenges who want us to punch it (doily lace) and use Basic Grey, Gingersnaps who want us to use a quote, and Practical Scrapperswho want to see patterned paper.

Making that DT card inspired me to make an Alice in Wonderland card set. I went quite simple really but I think it's quite effective! They're available to buy here on etsy and here on folksy if you're in the UK.
I've had quite a few pieces of good news this week too-a few different people have got in touch and said they'd featured my etsy shop on their blog or website. Today EtsyGreetings have featured my shop on their blog-you can have a peek here if you fancy! I think it must be my lucky week!
Right that's it from me, not going to waffle on-still haven't had my dinner yet but hubby's cooking enchiladas and they smell yummy! Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you might leave! xxx
