Fabulous Finds Friday — Bannerific!

Oh, my, I have been quite absent here, haven’t I?

Today I’ll post a project I made in June — a banner. Banners have been big for a while, and I’ve had this set from Close To My Heart for several months…

… but I was never sure what to do with it. Until I met a spritely woman who lives in the same senior complex as my mom. Doreen uses a scooter to tool around and she loves to decorate it in monthly themes. June showcased bride and groom bears; July sported a red, white and blue star-spangled theme.  I knew she’d appreciate a banner to drape over her scooter basket. I picked six of the flags — one for each letter of her name — and set about to decorate them in bright colors. Side one:

And the other side, with her name:

She loved it!

Here’s a close up:

It was such fun to see the delight on her face, and fun to see her tool around with my banner front and center.
