Little Blue Baby Banner

Happy Wednesday!

Since I retired, I really don't know what day of the week is....until Wednesday.  That's the night my girls and I all go out to dinner.  We've been doing it for about 15 years....so I have Wednesdays down for sure.

I made this little banner as a design team project for The Crafty Scrapper.  Sometimes my assigned projects don't include any dies....but I still want you to see them.  This certainly COULD have been done with a die because Spellbinders makes a great pennant die.  These just happen to be premade by Maya Road.  I painted the lacy pennants with craft paint and then used some distress ink to age the paint a bit.  I sanded also.  Sanding and inking make a great combo for distressing.  After that, adhering the papers and the little clothespins went quickly.  Then I just added a few pretties and called it done!

And just for fun, I decided to enter this project in the current challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Be sure to click over and see all the wonderful designer projects.

Well, that's it for Leap Day.  Tomorrow will be March first and I'll be sharing with you a new project and also information about a St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop.

I hope I'll see you soon.
