Quixotic Challenges DT Card-Judy's Sketch and I Heart Bunting

Afternoon everyone! Hope you're all well and enjoying the gorgeous weather we're having at the moment! We've had a 2 week break over at Quixotic Challenges while we sorted out the new challenge rules etc so do make yourself familiar with them, I wouldn't want you to miss out on the fabulous prizes on offer! So this week Judy has provided us with a fab sketch-was so fun to use-I'll definetly use it again!

A while ago I bought this Mo Manning stamp 'Jack and Ginger' from Elaine and haven't had chance to get it inked up yet! Whilst I do love digi given the choice I would always go for rubbah so am loving the new Mo Manning stamps which have come out by Stamping Bella which you can grab here. The papers I've used are October Afternoon Thrift Shop, and the flower was made using some spellbinders dies. By the way if you've not checked out all the new arrivals at Quixotic Paperie I would suggest you get yourself over there pronto-tons of goodies have arrived from the new BG Oliver and Olivia papers to Grungepaper-there's lots!

I'm going to enter this card over at Papertake Weekly who want to see stitches. For anyone that's interested I'll be listing this card in My Etsy Shop shortly! Here's a close up piccie:

I also have a bit of news to tell ya. Recently I was contacted by theDotComGiftShop letting me know they'd included me in their 50 Superb Craft Blogs List and after a couple of emails they asked if I'd like to review a product of theirs-which I jumped at! Well guess what they sent me?! Bunting!!! Now I am mad on bunting-if such a thing as a bunting coinesseur exists I am probably one of em as I've purchased quite a few different bunting sets and am always hunting different ones out! Take a looky at the fab set they sent:

Isn't it fab! You can purchase this bunting set here, I honestly couldn't believe they were only £19.95-the pennants are such a good size and the length is massive-the set fits round half of Leo's bedroom! He's absolutely thrilled with them! If you're on the look out for some bunting then I would definetly recommend this set-such superb value for money! Thanks so much to the DotComGiftShip for sending them to me!

Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you might leave-love hearing from you!
