Pretty bunting

I just can't get enough of bunting at the moment, and it seems to be hanging up everywhere  right now, mostly the  red and white variety for some strange reason. :)
Tonight we are off to a 40th birthday party, (which  until yesterday i'd forgotten about), so i quickly rustled up this simple card this morning, based on the one i made for my Sister in May, and of course features bunting too.


 A few weeks ago dotcomgiftshop emailed me to ask if it was OK for them to add my blog to their top 50 craft blogs list, of course i agreed, then this week they emailed again to ask if i would review some of the bunting, maybe they had seen a few of my cards with bunting on. I said i would delighted to, thinking they would just send a small sample, that i could maybe play around with a incorporate into my paper crafting in some way, how wrong i was. 
This is what i actually received in the mail today .
 It's the whole 8 metres of fabulous Vintage Union Jack Bunting, i can't wait until the sun comes out, so i can hang it in the garden at the next BBQ. It's just so gorgeous, i just can't bare to use it for anything else other than what it's intended for, and i'm sure it will feature at many parties in the future.
