Summer Celebration - Blog Hop

Welcome to our July Blog Hop! Be sure to hop all the way back to me so that you know you made it the whole way through. Comments are greatly appreciated by all.

First I decided to make a "Summer" banner. The entire thing was done with the Big Shot TM so I think my right arm will be just a little bit stronger now. As for the antique window, I found it in the wall when I was turning my garage into a stamp room. Score!

Next I made the invitation card to match the banner. I almost made the banner say "Picnic" since that is what I was imagining while I was making these items.

And then I made some pinwheels. These are 4-1/2 x 4-1/2 squares. I stuck them on some garden hooks with Dimensionals. They would make a great border or entry to a garden party.
