Just Fabulous

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a WONDERFUL Mother’s Day yesterday. Maybe you planted some flowers? Unfortunately, that was not the case here in Northern Colorado, as we were dealing with SNOW all day! It certainly was cozy, but not the kind of weather you would expect on Mother’s Day. 🙂

Its been a little while since I’ve made a pennant, and thought that a glamorous one would be fitting for Mother’s Day. I think many times moms get so busy taking care of the family’s needs, that they often forget their own. I’m sure many of us can relate to that on occasion! So, I thought this little pennant would be a fun reminder of the fabulous, deep- down glamorous women moms are!  paperdoll-pennant-3To create the base of the pennant, I simply traced a star shape onto cardstock, and trimmed with Platinum Stickles.  The Hollywood-style “mom” image is a vintage paperdoll that I scanned, sized down a bit, and printed onto cardstock. Love her fancy, ready for brunch, ensemble. To play up the corsage on her jacket, I bundled vintage forget-me-nots, and glued them to another glittery star.

I left the wooden dowel unpainted this time, but topped it off with even more sparkle. Vintage tinsel, a vintage bulb and vintage silver cording. Maybe a bit like a magic wand mom’s are known to carry? 🙂

I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday!

Happy Creating,
