A Quilt for my BFF

My best friend loves the colors of fall and so for her Christmas gift I made a simple lap quilt using a charm pack of the Phenomenal Fall by Sandy Gervais for Moda Fabrics.

After exchanging gifts we took her two girls to see Christmas lights. Sharing good times with good friends is one of my favorite things to do at Christmas.

Christmas Banners

Banners are so popular this year!  And with all my scrapbooking supplies I knew I could duplicate all adorable ones I saw on Pinterest!  So here are the two I made.  The "Santa" one is done with 400pt font called Rosewood STD Regular.  I printed the letters red on cream cardstock and mounted them on red cardstock. Then I used my lace border punch to add a decorative touch and strung them on a red satin ribbon.  The "Believe" was printed with 300pt Rosewood on light tan cardstock and cut to look like flags.  I used simple twine to string them together.  You should try it.  It makes the house so festive!
