Give Thanks Banner!


Today I want to share with you my Give Thanks banner!  I'm loving making banners, they are so cute and such a fun accomplishment when they are done!  And you can make them as simple as you like or it seems like you can just keep adding and adding and adding more little details!  Part of me that's a crafter at heart loves the simple fabric buntings that are so popular these days.  Last year I made some burplap wreaths and this year I added some burlap buntings to my home decor!

And how fitting to GIVE THANKS today - on Veteran's Day - thank you to all of our past and present service men and women that have fought for our freedoms and privileges and still fight to secure our safety for our future and that of our children and our country.  Sharing a picture from our SU! trip to Washington DC, from our evening Monuments by Moonlight bus tour ... so many favorites but this one really was striking, especially at night.

To be quick I will get right to the pictures because I'll probably be back in a bit with the new Weekly Deals - so come back to see what'll be on sale this week!

For this banner I decided it keep it a little bit simpler than the Halloween banner where I had a lot of fussy cutting and layering.  Instead on this one, I used the NEW Party Pennants Bigz die and the Fall DSP and then added in the letters with (oh my gosh I can't remember now ?) Champagne or Gold Glimmer Paper and the NEW Perfect Print Alphabet Bigz die.  I even fired up my little paper sewing machine!  I made it as two separate strands and then they link together at the clothespin and tie off into the bows on the ends.

A little bit closer up, I didn't add too much extra stuff to this one  
And here are my Fall Harvest Pumpkins with the Curvy Keepsake Box thinlit die
Well there ya have it!  Thanks for stopping by and see ya later with the Weekly Deals and stop by and visit me on Facebook too to see what else is happening!
