I'm a 45 year old SAHM. I live on the East coast of Suffolk with my lovely hubby, our 17 year old son and our totally mad 13 year old Labradoodle. I love all papercrafts, but at the moment my passion is for cardmaking and scrapbooking. Thanks for visiting.
If you like what you see here, please feel free to take inspiration from any of my designs for your own personnal use, but please don't copy them and pass them off as your own and not give me credit (that's not a nice thing to do), or enter them into competitions, or submit them for publication. If you do make anything inspired by my work, please let me know, i'd love to see it.
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.
