I spy with my little eye...MY BANNER!!!

Look behind the speaker. Bottom row 2nd from the left. They all look so great. I just visualized them hanging throughout the room, not stuck on a wall. Oh well to each his/her own vision.

"Pink"ing of you!

She volunteered to make 1000 or so cards for a Womens' Conference on Breast Cancer. I am donating 10. All the elements are from my stash of supplies. I stamped ATC's and wrapped verigated pink cording around them, embossed the 1st layer with various Cuttlebug embossing folders, wrapped patterned grosgrain ribbon and added little pink satin daisies that I added little pearls to the center. I lot of elements x10 and still did not make a dent in my supplies! I am happy to help in a small way.

First of 200 Felt Football Pins

Cricut makes it so much easier. Footballs cut from Sports Mania, Numbers cut from Varsity Letter. Puffy Paint on the ribbon tails personalized for each player. Only have to use pinking shears on the edge of one layer. So much easier than cutting everything by hand.

Garbage --- a Family favorite for Picnics and BBQs

My mother in law has made Garbage for years. I guess it got its' name at first because it could be made in a clean wastebasket. I immediately thought of Oscar the Grouch. Got my Sesame St cartridges out. The Gingham flowers are a Cuttlebug die cut. I hope you enjoy this project and try the recipe.
