halloween banner

Happy Monday! Okay, I know I'm weird but I am excited that it is finally Monday! I don't know why that would be...LOL!

Anyway, Todd called me today and asked me to meet him real quick while he was at work so...I did. He had an RAK for me but wouldn't tell me where it came from so I took it home, pulled it out of it's envelope and look what it is! Holy cow everyone...look at this gorgeous Halloween Banner! I've taken four different pictures, as you can see. I wanted to make sure that you can see all the details this banner has. All the letters and pumpkins are embossed...all the papers are glittery and embossed, and the ribbon is a super grosgrain black with white polka dots. This is quite the work of art and must have taken forever to make!

So...now for the guessing part of where this came from. I'm going to guess that none of Todd's co-workers can make something like this so I'll say it isn't anyone there. I can think of only one or two other place that Todd goes that might be where he got it from but I'm not going to say. Whoever it is...Thank You I completely and totally love it!

As you know tomorrow is Created by Courtney Challenge Tuesday. I will give you a little hint and let you know that it is a sketch challenge and one I think you'll like! So...with that...I hope you have just a super Monday! See ya tomorrow!

Wow, this is awesome. I'm sure it can be replicated to an extent. We could use left over Halloween cards from years past to make this or cards from friends too. I think I may have to try it. Lucky girl you are.

Lorie,
I know the suspense is probably driving your crazy. This is the first time I have commented on your blog but I have been admiring it for over a year after Todd told me about it. I dispatch for your husband when he is at work. Because I go to school and work full time I don't have a lot of time to dedicate to my hobby but I really enjoy living vicariously through all your projects. You always have such a big heart and are constantly encouraging people to do nice things I thought of you when I had an extra banner left over from an event that I did at my home and I thought you would appreciate receiving it. I am very glad to see that you like it as much as I do. I hope you have a great monday! Thanks for being such a great inspiration. Stacy

I was going to say "Lucky Duck" but then I realized out of all the people i know in the blogging world, YOU'RE the dude that deserves it the most! There's no luck to it. You're just that awesome. Speaking of which, THANKS SO MUCH for the BEAUTIFUL RAK that you sent me for Thanksgiving! I love it and was so happy to find it in my mailbox today (so far being a pretty turdy day)! You RAWK, Madame Ames. I'm proud to count you amongst my friends!
