CAS-ual Fridays: Banners & Flags


Happy Friday!  I've had a busy back from vacation week at work so I'm definitely doing the Friday dance today!  On Monday all the boys will be back in school (nothing like starting off the year with a full week!) and so we should all be getting a touch more sleep :)  No more texting Ryan to say it's time to come home from hanging out with his friends...until the next weekend!

But enough about what's going on in our neck of the woods...it's Friday which means it is time for another challenge at CAS-ual Fridays! This week our challenge is to use banners or flags on your cards.  I went ultra CAS an used some of my favorite Christmas papers from Lily Bee Designs.  Made three different size banners and added a Hero Arts sentiment.  Love the gorgeous font on the sentiment.  A twine bow and we're finished!
 
Be sure to stop by the CAS-ual Fridays blog and check out the work of all the fabulous designers.  We have a lot of different types of flags/banners and you're sure to be inspired!

What a fun idea to use the banners for a Christmas card, Lynn!! Beautifully done!

My youngest doesn't start school until after Labor Day - we'll be squeezing out a little more summer fun next week - and to answer your question - come on over! I'd LOVE to craft with you! (hee, hee!)
