Drivers, start your engines!

Happy Saturday everyone.
Is summer officially over?
Can I get out my jumpers and thick woollies now? :-)

We want you to play along with another CES Challenge this week.
Our lovely host is Kaylou 
and she has chosen the theme 

 Banners, Bunting and Flags

If you need some inspiration check out the awesome work from the DT

I needed a 50th Birthday card for a friend, so flags and bunting were perfect.

I know this image is a bit different for a 50th birthday, 
but the person it's meant for has a car like this, that he and my hubby take circuit racing, so there is method in my madness!

I have used one of these 'On the Edge' card blanks from Crafty Emmas
Have you seen them? They are 6 x 6 smooth white card and you can get different edge designs.
DP is Fancy Pants 'It's the little things' also available at Emmas

The image is AJ the Racing Driver from the Stamping Boutique
coloured with Copics and some glossy accents on the tyres.
The numbers were cut on my slice machine - basic elements card
Bunting is a Molly Blooms stamp, paper pieced with the DP.

Pop along to Crafty Emma's this weekend and check out the 
GORGEOUS NEW STOCK that has just arrived. 
And, you know what 'new stock' means -
it means there is a massive SALE to make way for all the new goodies.
Grab yourself a bargain whilst you are over there.

And remember,  if you join us this week, you could win a £10 gift voucher 
to spend in the store (excl p&p).
