PPA 186 - Color Challenge

 I made this for Pals Paper Arts Challenge #186.  It's for my son and daughter-in-law's first anniversary coming up.  I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Express Yourself, which is a hostess set.  I love my sentiment stamps!  I cut these banners myself but there is an easier way!  The Occasions Catalog has a set of banner dies (product #132173) and stamps to match.  See page 27 of the Occasions Catalog in my previous post.  If you order both, you save 15%!

We just had a big snow storm and ended up with two extra days off!  I was so happy to get the first text on Thursday at 6:25 a.m.  I was getting in the shower late after dragging my feet, hoping for no school.  I was even more excited to get the second text in the afternoon saying that we had no work today either!  I thought I would stamp today but ended up cleaning and grocery shopping late afternoon.  The roads were not great.  I hope it warms up soon.  It's been incredibly cold with the wind chill factor!  The temp today was 7 at one point.  Not sure how low it is now, but I thank God I don't live in Wisconsin!  I read about temps of -55 degrees!  I couldn't take that.  I think I would just hibernate.

Thanks for looking and leaving a comment!
