I started the cute card below, over a year ago at a Scrapbooking Convention. I went with my SIL. (Fun times, Cindy)! But just recently I finished it up and gave it along with a graduation gift.
And then, I meant to share this with you weeks ago. But I couldn't publish it until AFTER my sister received it in case it would spoil her surprise. If you remember, my Dad use to call her his "little firecracker" because of her July 4th birthday. So I went a little crazy with the envelope. No surprises there!
Some of you may remember when I made this purse using a placemat for part of it last year. That's a real Levis Strauss pocket, with real Levis belt loops to hold on the straps. : )
Okay, onto the frolic...
I stayed up 'til the wee hours of the night with this guy.
This fun banner may not look like much work, but I had to cut out three patterns for each triangle, then fancy cut each one. I could have made three, but the layered look was too hard to resist. I got my inspiration from two places...a photo in a Mary Engelbreit magazine and a post on Style Sisters last year. I asked her where she got hers and she said she found it in a little boutique in her neck of the woods and she bought the last two. Hers actually said: Halloween.
