Too Cute To Send!

But I sent it anyway. ☺This is my banner style tag for Elizabeth's friendship banner swap. I hope it's not too heavy. I find it difficult to go light.

I forgot about putting holes in it till the end! Gulp! No way was I going to take a chance of ruining it as I have ruined one before! Hopefully, Elizabeth can do it.

I'm always happy with the end results of my paper crafting but this took me days to finish! Ha! I'm severely challenged when it comes to measuring and cutting. If all I had to do was design, it would be much easier. It's not that I always think crafting should be easy but I don't like it to be frustrating either so one tag is all I'm making. Thanks to everyone else who invited me to swap with them, though! ♥

House News:

Sort of ☺I talked to our loan lady today and she said we might have our loan in a few days!

Then all we have to do is have the house pass their inspection and we can make an offer!

Yikes! I'm trusting that adrenaline will come to my rescue because I haven't been sleeping well lately and I have zero energy!

Thank you all so much for helping me wait!

Holly, I hear you that is the way I felt, I was not going to be able to crank out a whole bunch of Banners. I did only two to swap I had to say no! When I get anytime to craft I need to use that time to make things to fill my Etsy Shop... your Banner is darling I just know E will love it! Hugs, Diane P.S. Sent your college sheets enjoy

This is darling. I love all your little touches. I find that the first one is always longer than the others. I use it as a copy and go from there. Best to you on the loan...smiles..Renee

Oh you always make the cutest things Holly, and this is no exception. It's adorable! Just like that sweet little house that I SO hope you get. It looks like it's already loaded with charm, but wait 'til you get your hands on it. Cutie Pie Cottage for sure!

Mecky said...

That is darling!!

It is so stresful buying a new home. I hope that we don't have to go through that again. I want a bigger house but don't want to move at all.

Amy said...

Holly, I'm a new follower to your adorable blog. I love your red vintage suitcase and the happy shelves above your sink. Will you have happy shelves like that at your new place?

Come for a visit sometime when you have a minute. I love vintage, too.


Nice banner. I'm trying to make 2 of things so that I have one too!

Chenille Cottage said...

Oh, what an exciting time this is for you, Holly! I pray that things work out in every way. I can see this house becoming your new "Cutie Pie Cottage"!

Oh...You are so skillful with your darling pennant. It is so detailed and so very sweet! I am so terrible when it comes to crafting with paper. I went on a scrapbooking retreat and after 2 days came home with one card made! Yikes!

Blessings and good wishes, my friend!

You said House, and I came running. Hoping with all my heart this goes through for you!
Holly, I absolutely adore your banner. The polka dots are so YOU! I was able to punch holes carefully into each corner. Just need to purchase sheer ribbon to hang above my craft desk!
Thank you again! Elizabeth

What a darling banner! How fun, a friendship swap! Nothing like friends! Good luck with all the house~stuff! I know it is stressful but in the end it is all worth it! xox

Sandy said...

This is so cute!!!! Just you to a "T"! I use to be ike that abotu measuring and such, then I got a Cricut, and my life opened up to more opportunities to craft....no more worrying about cutting just right. I have a Silhouette Cameo now and it is even more incredible! Meri has one also, both gifts from our hubby's and the things it can do are endless! You can even get it to cut out your images you put on items! How about that???? Every day I look to see if the loan has come through...I am really pulling for you! :) And that the inspection is not a nightmare....:) Sandy

Jacqueline said...

Oh Holly, how I hope and pray that your little wee house dream comes true and you can find a nest to call home for a very very long time. The house is adorable and so YOU!

Your button is unique and cuter than cute!

Holly I'm wondering how it's going with the potential buying of this home? Banner is lovely. I have two to make and have not done it yet as I'm sewing so much.

Love the banner Holly. So true, too cute to send. You are a sweetie and did it anyway. These things always take longer than what we think they will.
