Christmas Banner

Howdy all!
I couldn't resist using Everyday Prints to make this super festive banner!
It just came together so quickly and easily with a few pieces of fabric tape in between each tag. Of course I had to heat emboss "joy" with gold e.p. to make it really stand out, but it didn't take long because I stamped them all at the same time on the same sheet of CS!

Here's a bigger picture so you can see the entire banner.

Terrible lighting, I know, but it's my upstairs foyer and there is only one window on this side.
Know what my favorite part of this banner is? The adorable little Christmas trees in the top section! They are just too cute!

Now that I realize just how simple it is to make a banner using these easy-to-cut-out tag images I can't wait to make one for other occasions too! How about New Year's with blue and gold? Or St. Valentine's Day with pink and purple and the words "Love You"? 
Eeeek, I'm already excited about the myriad of possibilities!

Be sure to stop by Karen, Paulina, and Courtney's blogs to see all the other projects the DT created for this release. You won't be disappointed!

Both Rejoice and Everyday Prints will be released at midnight tonight at Practicing Creativity Designs so be there or be square! *giggle*

Let me know what you all think,
Hugs,

Dana

That is SO cute! I hesitate to make banners cause I always think they are really difficult. You make it "seem" easy peasy. :) I might have to try. I like the colors and pictures of the boys are too cute!
