A SWEETHEART BANNER

Good morning everyone !

Well my overkill craft dilemma ( otherwise known as my OCD )  has gone into full gear this last week and I've gone banner or garland crazy
( what's the difference between the two - does anyone know? )

This latest one was created for my daughter's girlfriend's baby's ( ok that's just too many apostraphes for me to handle in the morning ) first birthday party - which falls on Valentine's day !


I'm not crafty - really I'm not - so you won't be seeing a lot of this type of thing here - except I bought a pad of construction paper so God only knows what's going to be happening - the scissors are flying my friends LOL !

First I cut out my hearts - making 2 holes on top to thread the ribbon through.


Next I cut out 2 little pieces of ribbon and glued them on


Next came a few layers of foam hearts that I've had for well over a hundred years - I actually sewed these on to the construction paper


and then covered that thread with stick on " diamonds " because they're a girl's best friend - even if she's only turning 1  ( again with the apostraphe's ??? )



So those plus the " faux " tin heart ones I did HERE


AND the teddy bear ones I'm working on now


Oh and did I mention the tag garland I made a couple of weeks ago?


John thought this next one was a bunch of fancy A's................. please tell me you recognize it


Does this mean it'll be a banner year for Simply Vintageous ???

Or a garland year ?


Anyway I have to run because I just had the most incredible idea for another one !!!
Have a wonderful day everyone

The new computer is in and set up - now I have to learn how to use it ( God help me ) AND there's a major problem happening with emails so I'll probably be on the phone half the day with my server

In other news I've joined Instagram................
That's it - I've joined it - don't ask me how to actually use it LMHO !

Have a wonderful day all - look for color :)
Hugs,
Me
