OSAAT challenge #198 - Anything Goes

Good morning my friends!

I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend.  It was so warm here yesterday that Matt, Louie & I took a nice 45 minute beautiful walk by the bay.  It felt so good to feel the sun on my face!

This weeks challenge #198 for One Stitch At A Time is "Anything Goes" I chose this gorgeous Vintage Valentine Pack from Reece's Scrap Pieces.

I love it when you can buy Holiday paper to use over and over 
again without having to find a place to store it in your craft room.  If you
Would like to purchase this great item please click HERE.

I made this banner from Cameo Silhouette Store with it.

I wish you could see how beautiful this paper is!  Just lovely!  I used my new Trendy Twine to string it all together.  Here is a little tip.  When you are stringing something on to a banner; wet the ends first with some thick glue and let it dry, the ends then act like needles.

I am entering this banner into the following challenges:
