Month by Month Signs

Well summer is getting close to being over and soon the little goblins will coming around the neighborhood.  I love fall because of the cooler weather that comes with it!

My daughter ask last week if I would make her something to place by Wesley's monthly pictures to show how much he will grow.  Nothing fancy but just to show.  So I thought for awhile and thought I would just go with the same theme we used for her baby shower, elephants and white and yellow chevrons.

I still had some paper left over and decided to make a banner that would not be too small or too big either and I really like how it came out too!

I used my Top Note die (retired) and traced the banner onto the back of the paper so I could hand cut it out, very easy.  Then I dug into the craft closet and got out my old Sizziz alphabet dies called Playground!  The elephant is from Zoo Babies and I stamped it in Smoky Slate.  The card stock is Smoky Slate also and I use SU silver glimmer paper!  I like how well it turned out too!  All I need to do is add ribbon for a hanger, if the daughter wants one.

Well off to make some more cards!  Mary
