Merry Christmas!!!

I know it is only September, but never to early to start thinking of the cards to send out, right?

I was playing around with a new stamp set the other day. I then thought that this was an image of a hanging sign so I got the bright idea to make it swing. It was a little extra and I really like the idea of a banner swinging.

I used my rectangle nestablilities to make the border around the whole sign. When I got to looking at it, it reminded me of a picture frame.

It is fairly simple to do. It just took a little extra for the rings on the sign. First I bought some little jump rings from the jewelry making aisle but I was having a hard time with them, my fingers just kept getting in the way. LOL! Then I had some wire so I cut a couple of pieces and used that which was a little easier. I decided usually around Christmas (not very often around here) that there is snow so I used some stickles on top of the banner and the post to make it look like there was snow outside.

Here is a close up of the sign so you can actually see that it is cut out.

I am going to play around with a few more and see what I like the best or maybe just make different designs instead of mass producing.

Thank you for coming by!
Have a wonderful day,
