Sign of Summer

Mowing the lawn is a chore my husband absolutely hates. Don't ask me why, considering our teeny lawn area that takes maybe 15 minutes at the most to mow. It usually takes many "gentle" reminders before he'll wheel out the mower, but this time I nearly fell over when he did it on his own without any prodding whatsoever from me! Go hubby! I keep telling him it's the little things that make me happy...but I guess to him, the mowing is a big thing. Oh well.

Now on to the details. Funny thing about this page is that he doesn't even know I got these pictures. LOL Pattern papers on this page are October Afternoon, Farm Fresh. One of my faves, but most everything OA is a fave really.


I used the Cottage Cutz lawn mower cuz, well, how could I not for these pics!?? I used the grass from the pumpkin scarecrows and you can see I "trimmed" the grass behind the mower. Hee hee!


For my subtitle, I used one of the flags from the Cottage Cutz plain pennant die. The top of the flagpole is the dot for the 'i' that I didn't use with the letter. Letters are QK Blossom mini alphabet.



And the main title banner is done using both the plain pennant and the pinking pennant dies from the birthday release. These are both must-haves for layering. Super cute! I popped the letters with foam tape, and added tiny buttons to the twine for even more dimension. Title letters are QK Diesel Classic, lower case.


These pennants have endless possibilties. Great for party invites, thank you cards, birthday or any celebratory occasion. How cute would it be to make a mini banner for a bake sale table at church, or lemonade stand in the summer...endless. :)

Thanks for coming by today. Hope you'll be inspired to create a fun banner for one of your projects this week!
