New Pennant Parade

Hellooooooo there have you had a good weekend? I had my launch on Saturday and yesterday I spent the whole day exhibiting at the KC Stadium in Hull helping a downline get her business of the ground. So if you stopped by our stand yesterday big **wave**
What do you think of the new book? Are you loving it? Is your wish list HUGE? If it is, NOWis the perfect time to join a Virtual Club!!!
 I am starting another one at the end of the month and I have 9 places available, read more HERE then contact me.
Personally I am excited beyond words about the new book, we have a fabulous offering this year and I have lots of fabulous projects to share with you already as I spent a lot of time creating with the new stuff over the last weeks building samples.
And I am sharing today the make n take everyone did at my launch on Saturday. It was a beautiful day and all my lovely friends and dear customers came to support me and my launch, we had a fabulous time and the day whizzed by far to quickly like it always does when you’re having fun. So if you was there a huge THANK YOU to you from me.
Here’s the card
Love Calypso Coral ( I know, I keep telling you that) and the ladies all fell in love with it as well, as they were stamping the pennants(bunting) before punching them out with the matching pennant punch I could hear them saying  *oooh that is SUCH a nice colour* Open-mouthed smile
I paired it with Pool Party, Real Red and Daffodil Delight. The flowers were punched with the Boho blossom punch and the Itty Bitty one and topped with rhinestones.
mnt close
the sentiment from the same was stamped in real Red before punching it out with the 3/4” circle punch and layered onto the bigger flower from the Boho Blossom punch.

And onto the next card I have to show you, in the same set you have a pot stamp as well because the pennants can be easily transformed into trees and Christmas trees, and I did just that with this next card made my pennants in to a Christmas tree..

This time Pool Party a new in colour was paired with Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip and Lucky Limeade(another new in colour)
I used markers to ink the fabby A LA Carte Christmas stamp called Something For Christmas.
