Banner Month - week 5:

This week: the "M" pennant
and
The COMPLETED Banners!
(Are you as excited as I am?)

The optional directive for this Week 5
Incorporate either a clock or a key into your design.

And now.........


My completed DREAM Banner!

I can hardly wait to see all of yours! Anticipation has been building since Week 1!

I really hope everyone had as much fun with this challenge as I did! I am truly honored that all of you played along. Based on your comments and emails in response to the hints I've dropped, I think we should do it again! Let's take a couple of weeks off and begin a SPRING banner on Wednesday, February 20.

I hope to see all of the January participants return. We would also love to encourage some new players to join us!


As usual, sign in with Mr. Linky and please leave a comment.

I love the ribbon you chose to tie them together. I also like the way you put only half of the clock on the banner. Isn't that just like dreams? They seem to last so long but are really only half (if that!) the time.

The whole thing is stunning!

Ooh, your banner looks wonderful all up together. This has been such a great project - thank you. Especially thanks as your mind has quite rightly been on your grandson. Our prayers continue for him.

Hi Lisa, I worked on my last banner this afternoon and will finish it tomorrow. I feel like I'm a weeek behind everybody but I had to wait to find out what the optional element was so I could write my haiku to coordinate.

I don't get much done during the week (tired!) so have to wait for the weekend.

I haven't gone to look at the others yet but will tomorrow after I post mine.

I loved this challenge and enjoyed doing it. Thank you so much for envisioning and hosting it! Everything was handled so professionally. The only thing I would suggest is that the opotional element be posted earlier, maybe even be listed at the beginning. I know that would have helped me be more on time. For example, since you are beginning the next one on Feb.
20th, if I knew what the optional elements were ahead of time, I could get all of them completed during my shcool vacation beginning on Feb. 23rd. Other than that, this was a great experience!

I check Amy's site daily and am cheering about Alan's progress! What a wonderful mom and grandma you are to be there for her! And to deal with this, too!

BTW, Love that "Home" collage you did! Isn't it amazing what we can accomplish when we just look around us?

Well Lisa, I have been so looking forward to commenting on your beautiful 'M' pennant and completed banner! I was so impressed last Wednesday when I saw it, made me feel so proud to be part of something so special and unique. I look forward to more...and wonderful, continued inspiration.
