Pennant Card

Today I have created my very first blog (this is my first post too).  For a long time I have wanted to do this so that I could share with my friends and family all of my fun creations!  I love all things crafty but I am currently excited about coloring stamped or digital printed pictures with my Copic pens. I then use those colored pictures and create beautiful cards or gift boxes/bags for family and friends.

My favorite digital pictures to color these days are from Saturated Canary by Krista Smith you can find her images on her web site   I just can't get enough of them and already own more than 50 images from her.  They are just the cutest!!!

So today I am going to post a little pennant card I made recently.  My inspiration came from the many pennant banners I've seen.  I started out thinking of making a banner for my granddaughter's birthday, but then decided to turn one of the pennant pieces into a card (never did finish making the rest of the banner for my granddaughter!).  The card doesn't stand well but I love how it looks.  I didn't give it to anyone, instead I found these cute hanger clips at one of my favorite craft stores and I am going to hang it on my craft room wall as decoration.  I hope you like it...
