Thankful for Big Shot!

Good evening! Today, I started my 3 day weekend, since I have Monday off for Columbus Day. I am super excited!  I spent some time making some stamping things this afternoon, and tried out my Big Shot Pennant die to make a banner for the fall.  I am in love with how this turned out! I used the Haiku dp from SU! and cardstock to make the pennants.  I also used the stamp set "True Friend" to stamp the images.  For the letters, I used the Simon on board chipboard letters, which I coated with chocolate chip craft ink and then coated with clear embossing powder and heated them. This gives them a glossy look.  On my stamped images I coated some with Stickles, and added rhinestone brads, or filigree brads.  I've included a picture of the banner on my dining room mantel, and them close-ups of each pennant.

Now I've got lots of gift ideas floating through my head!
