Well, here in Canada, Thanksgiving is coming up soon. This weekend, in fact! Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, pumpkin pie... Mmmm... is it dinner time yet, Mom? :) We're so blessed to be invited to my parent's for Thanksgiving dinner on Monday. It's one of my favourite times of year.
For Thanksgiving, I like to add some extra touches to my fall decor. I made this Thanksgiving banner to display at this time of year.
I started with 8x8 squares of patterned paper. Then, I wanted to round the corners off to make them look "leaf-ish". I actually used a soup bowl to trace the rounded edge & free cut them.
-inked the edges
-cut the letters with my cricut
-stamped leaves in fall-ish colours & cut them out
-gathered all my fall type stickers, etc.
Then I punched holes in the top of each "leaf" & used ribbon to connect them into a banner. I hung it under my bar top between the living room & kitchen.
Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!
I'm thankful for:
My loving Saviour, Jesus Christ
My wonderful husband
My precious children
My warm, comfy home
My fabulous friends
My great church family
And really, what else do I need?
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
Enjoy your day!
