Valentine banner 2010 - MMM
















Thanks to my friend Charlotte for teaching us how to create this Valentine banner at our altered book club yesterday. I added three hearts to it yesterday to help it stretch all the way across my mantle. The red, white and black flowers were a present from my friend, Dorothy and I thought that they would look perfect on my banner.
My friend, Barbara has encouraged me to join the challenge this week at Mixed Media Monday so I am going to add my banner to their art there where their challenge for this week is something new.

WOW! Your banner is so fabulous, Nancy!! Please consider submitting it to Mixed Media Monday tomorrow (or probably even later today, as new themes are often posted on Australia time) for the "something new" theme! It's perfect for the theme, and it's perfectly fantastic!!

Nancy, this is just great! You know I am a banner chic, so I'm thrilled to see a new idea. Charlotte really outdid herself. But then, of course she did! Hope I get to see this in person.
