Bella Bella

I've found another new (for me) challenge. Use It Tuesday is all about using up your crafty stash. In my entry I've used Pink Petticoat Big Dot papers (which I use fairly frequently) and some wooden kitchen utensils I bought years ago from Mad About Cards. I made the card for the owners of the Bella Napoli Restaurant in Laganas, Zakynthos. The restaurant is the best on the island and boasts a proper wood fired pizza oven.

Talking about stash I wonder if you have things you can't bear to use because you love them so much. Mine is this:

It's called 'fajita baby' and I have both the boy and girl. The product is discontinued now so those I have left will remain safely snuggled in their blankets and never used.

I'm entering my card into:

Use It Tuesday - Cooking Up Fun
Anything Goes Challenge - Stitches faux or real
Digital Tuesday - Anything goes
Incy Wincy Designs - Stitching faux or real
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Ooh La La - Stitching faux or real

Thanks for looking!
