I have been running around like a crazed person this week trying to finish up some assignments and getting caught up with house stuff (not so much fun but necessary). There are many things I want to show you but for now just a quick post to display a baby banner I just completed for a friend. It's been a while since I have featured something I've made so here it is...
My friend, Barb, asked me to make a name banner for her grandniece's Baptism. She requested pink and green as the color scheme...which is such an easy one to work with.
The flower and butterfly shapes are chipboard.
The scalloped circles were cut using Nestibilities dies.
The letters were made with my wonderful Cricut machine.
After I put it all together, I decided that the letters looked too plain. Using some Quickutz dies, I made the flowers & stems for the "L" and "h" and punched the butterflies for the "e" and "a" using a Martha Stewart punch. I used a marker to color the butterfly bodies and draw the antennas. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them for detail. Baby gifts are always fun to make and you know how I love banners!
Now....I must get busy and finish my assignment for Elizabeth's Halloween banner swap.
I am the "W" in Halloween.
Just a peek for now!
Hope you all have a splendid Thursday!
