Love You Banner - Fab Friday 10

  I know that it's been 2 weeks since I've posted, have you missed me?!?  At least make me feel good and lie!   I promise that I've been stamping but it's mostly been for my stamp club on Tuesday so it's a secret….Shhhhhh!  You'll have to come on the 22nd to see.  Just shoot me an e-mail if you're planning on attending.  Friday (tonight) at 8pm is the cut off!

  I think I'm finally back into a routine with the boys and will be posting regularly.  I have many new Spring Catalog and Sale-a-bration items that need love.

  I used a few new products to create my card for today's Fab Friday Challenge.  This time around we have a fun set of colors to work with!  At first I was wondering how I was going to get all of these colors onto one card but they coordinate so well it wasn't hard at all!

  I don't usually send out a lot of Valentines but of course I do need a few for the handsome guys in my life!  I don't know how they will feel about the Pink Pirouette but at least it's a start right?

  The base is Very Vanilla and then a smaller layer of Very Vanilla with rounded corners and run through the Big Shot with the new Honeycomb e.f..  They I took some scraps of the challenge colors and ran those through with the Honeycomb e.f.  Using my paper snips I cut out the the inside part of each hexagon and then glued it down inside the embossed areas.

  Next I stamped my hearts and then used the Hearts a Flutter banner framelit to cut them out.  I stamped another Cherry Cobbler heart and cut that out with the matching heart framelit.  It is popped up on the banner with a dimensional.  The mini banner from Itty Bitty Banners was stamped in Crumb Cake and then cut out and adhered and a small rhinestone was added.

  I wrapped some linen thread around 2 Vintage Trinket brads to "hang" my banners.  I accented the brads with a few rhinestones just for good measure.  The banners are just adhered with dimensionals.

  There you have it!  Head over to the Fab Friday Challenge to see our wonderful group of designers and all the genius ideas they've got!  Remember you've got lots of time to enter so no excuses right?  I can't wait to see your take on the challenge colors!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
