My Sheri Crafts Challenge #73: Be Thankful

After seeing this awesome Grateful banner by Kelli on Pinterest, I knew what I would make for our challenge this week at My Sheri Crafts!  I gathered my supplies and went to work die cutting my pennants and banner basics' decorative strips. After having made this Halloween banner (which DD was thrilled to receive!), this second one went together pretty quickly.
Something about the word "gather" on Kelli's banner just spoke to me:  the thought of what the original Thanksgiving was truly all about -- a gathering in of the harvest and a gathering of family and friends together to equally share in the bounty of that harvest and the love and thankfulness everyone was feeling way back then in their new homeland.
I think this project is pretty straightforward as far as assembly goes, so I'll just add that if anyone has any questions about any project or product, please feel free to leave a comment or email me, as I'm always happy to share! I hope you'll take a peek at all the lovely projects our DT Ladies and our Guest Designer at My Sheri Crafts' created this week and perhaps leave a comment or two and PLEASE JOIN US by posting your own project!!! Always thankful you stopped by today!


Supplies:  Spellbinders' Pennants/Lacey Pennants/Banner Basics Three; DP - Autumn Abundance from Papertrey Ink; CS - brown Bazzill, Orange Zest & Summer Sunrise from PTI; Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest and flocked chipboard letters, source unknown; Creamsicle Gingham ribbon & Boshers from Bazzill Basics, various fibers.
