A little friend from church was turning seventeen this week and I wanted to make her something. The amazing part of this story is that I:
#1 actually thought of it in advance
#2 actually decided on something and
#3 actually finished it.
I'll give you a moment to be impressed with that astonishing news.
And may I interject right here, purely for my own satisfaction, that I did banners before they were cool. Or hot, as the case may be. Back in the day when I was trying to come up with an original idea for an art challenge, I dreamed up a pennant swap (here, here, and here) and looked high and low across the webisphere to find examples to show the participants what I had in mind, and only found a few. Now they are everywhere! Do I think I started them? Ha! Ha! Har! Har!--that's me laughing a preposterous snort--of course not!! I just want to state for the record (my own personal one that no one else cares about) that I did banners when banners weren't cool.
Thank you for indulging me........... I feel so much better with that off my chest........My one and only claim to cutting edge and all......
And you are quite welcome for that song. :)
Moving along...... I had bookmarked this little pretty the other day and used it for inspiration.
I knew I would be working with a pink and black palette. This is what I came up with.
I must say, the gift was well received. My backup plan was to lop off the last three letters and just use it myself, but I could tell right off I wasn't going to get a chance at it! Enjoy, Lisanne!
