Let's fly

Well what a great weekend I have had. The craft fair on Friday was amazing, the best I have ever done. I sold 44 cards, a notebook and a doorhanger. The one on Saturday was very well organised but unfortunately not very busy, still sold another 10 cards so made a little money after paying for my stall. Will be busy restocking now. Yesterday started well as I found out I won the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge, prize guest designer next month, 2 digis and 2 rubber stamps. EB stamps from Sugar Nellie were some of my first stamps and I have always loved her images. We went into the city and I bought some Gabor boots reduced from £95 to £45, beautiful soft leather ankle boots, found a lovely top, hubby used some vouchers to get a free box of Adnams real ale and we had a free lunch at House of Fraser (that's a long story as to why it was free). Last night was the last episode of my fave TV programme, Once Upon a Time and what a fantastic ending. Can't wait for the new series next year.

So hubby is off to watch some powerboat racing this afternoon and I will be crafting. I made this card when I got home yesterday using one of my new Sugar Nellie stamps. I have wanted Little Aviator for a while and he is so lovely to colour with Promarkers and Flexmarkers of course. The papers are Echo Park A Boy's Life, The backing paper suits the image so well ad I love the colours of these papers as well as the fact they are double sided and both sides are gorgeous. I've used my MS zigzag punch and added some star buttons tied with baker's twine.
