My Autumn Banner

I wasn't sure I'd like the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, so I didn't order it.  When my friend, Pennie, invited me over to make a banner with her, I wasn't sure what to expect.  Well, what fun it turned out to be!  The kit has 18 blank canvas pennants, twine, and alphabet and image stencils.  I made an autumn banner to hang over the fireplace.  I decided not to use the letter stencils on this one, but now I wonder if I should have done "THANKFUL" like Pennie did on hers.  Nonetheless, I love it AND I had a lot of fun designing it.  Thanks, Pennie.  If you want to visit Pennie's blog, a link to it is in the right-hand column on my blog.

Until next time, happy autumn.

Downline Stamp Class

I had a stamp class with my downline earlier in the week.  Below is a picture of my downline:  Sandy, Judy, and Ryn.  As you can see, we were making Grinch Christmas cards.

Judy (below) is working on a washi tape Christmas card, the second card we made that day.

Ryn and Sandy (below l to r) are using the Big Shot.

Judy made some high heel cupcakes to share with us.  These were practice for the ones she and Sandy made later in the week for a church gathering.  If you look closely at the yellow ones in the center front, you can see the "high heels."  I wish I had taken a side view so you could really see the platform high heels.  Very cute.  As you can see, Judy is quite talented at cake-making as well as card-making.

Does seeing those cupcakes make you want one?  I generally don't care for cake (or pie or cookies...), but these make me want a taste.  Truth be told, Judy did share them with the group, so I had one for dessert that very day.  And yes, they were delicious as well as pretty.
