Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party 

#170 Anything but a Card 

Optional Theme: Wall Banners

My Design Team Project

Isn't this cute!?!!

This is from the Cricut Make It Now section of Design Space.
I made it a little smaller, and added several more banner pennants so it could spell MEOW.

The original Cricut Make It Now project HERE

My altered Meow Banner HERE

All images are print and cuts.
Meow font is Cricut Alphabet.
Letters and images adhered with foam tape.
Lime green tulle
Lime green linen thread

I hung this one on the wall in my craft area above my HAPPY banner.

Thanks for visiting me today.
Hope you'll come play with us at Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party this week.
Create anything but a card, and if you are feeling really adventurous, 
the optional theme is Wall Banners.

Easter already?! Seems like I was just wishing it would hurry up and snow, and now winter has come and gone and Spring has arrived.

Inside mat 3 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Outside mat 3 5/8" x 5 1/4"
