Just Words

Can’t stay away from Kraft cardstock for long . . . it sings me siren songs if I go more than a few days without spending some time with it . . .

A little while ago, I had need of a Washi paper background, so I took a cheerfully flowered red pattern, ironed the back of it onto the shiny side of freezer paper, and wound up with a good-sized piece of delicate Washi paper that now had a lot more body to it.  After trimming to the size I needed, I had enough leftover strips to use in making two cards.  After notching the ends of the strips, my new banners were ready to go . . . Happy Birthday this very day to my baby brother Gordy!
