The Runaway Train.....

Welcome to my two new followers Dr Sonia SV of Cards, Crafts and Kid's Projects and Mac Mable of The Sweetest of Peas.  Please pop over to their blogs to see their lovely creations. 

What fabulous weather we've had this weekend!  My DH and I have spent the weekend with twenty four friends, overlooking Saunton Sands and enjoying the North Devon coastline. 

Onto today's card, another of my Fiskarettes DT projects.
I used a Fiskars train stamp and banner punch.  The backing paper is by Anna Marie Designs.


 I find this the easiest way to make sure the letters land up in the middle of each banner, using the punch upside down.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
