Grapefruit Mango

I love banners and pennants! I'm tempted to order the pennant stamp and die cut from Taylored Expressions. Cutting this out by hand is tedious - but worth the look. The TE stamps/die cut system is the bee's knees! No more guessing where the stamp will end up on the die cut. No more wondering if the die cut will cut exactly where you want in relation to the stamp. I may just have to do that...I could order and give it to me for Valentine's Day or St. Patrick's Day, or Easter, or just 'cuz! I know! February is national grapefruit month! Now THAT is something to celebrate.

Here is another card for friend Mary Lee's friend.

  4. A great use of the sketch Nancy, I think you love bunting even more than me. Your card is bright and full of fun energy! Unfortunately you do have to use at least one item from Stampin up for our challenge, but thank you for taking the time to join us at Simply Stampin'.
