Ta da!!

Phew I finally finished my festive Christmas bunting inspired by Linda's fabulous 12 tags of Christmas Challenge. You can find all the details of the challenge here and see Linda's beautiful 12th tag here. The challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie boutique and there are some amazing prizes!  Although my camera is still poorly sick and drying out in a bowl of rice I did manage to get the pics from the memory card so I could show you the finished result. The bunting was so long I had to split it and I've put one on the dresser in our hall :


and the second in the dining room. 


And here's a pic of the final pennant:


I made this with a background stamp from Christmas Flourish by Chocolate Baroque, a bauble stamp (also from Chocolate Baroque) and lots of distress inks. I added some gold mesh ribbon from my stash, a stamped sentiment, a couple of die cut holly leaves and a poinsettia made from Crinoline fabric. The sprig of holly at the top of the pennant was actually a bit left over from putting up the Christmas decorations, you know how it is with all the bits on the floor? Well it seemed a shame to throw it away so I popped it on my pennant.

I'm also entering this project in the following challenges:
ABC Challenge : D is for Deck the halls
Brown Sugar: red green and cream
Come and get it: anything Christmas
Fussy and Fancy: tags and banners

The eagle eyed amongst you may notice that there are actually 11 pennants instead of 12, thats because our puppy Barney managed to get his paws on one and chew it up! He's full of mischief and I have to keep a beady eye on him while I'm crafting as he's always looking for something to chew.

Right before I go and watch Strictly, thanks for popping by and a huge thank you to Linda at The Funkie Junkie for such an inspirational challenge, I've really enjoyed every inky minute of it.
