Oliver's name hanging.

I was going to enter the Allsorts challenge which is "Rags to riches" ie to alter something. Unfortunately I am too late!!
I think it also fit the Creative Inspirations Sunday challenge :- Anything but a card.

What I altered is 6 beer mats like this one. A friend got some for a few of us and I have already made a name hanging for Poppy. So I decided that Oliver needs one too.

This is what I made. I covered both sides of the beer mats with some lovely double sided Fancy Pants DP. The other side is striped like the letters. I rounded the corners of the paper to fit the beer mats and edged with a cloudy blue Adirondack paint dabber. The letters were cut out using my Cricut and added to the squares with foam pads. I used some of the smaller Penny Black images from different sets of transparent stamps. These were coloured with Promarkers, cut out and attached with foam pads. I also added some buttons to each square. I tied each square to the next one with grosgrain ribbon. I hope Catriona likes it. Oliver is a bit too young to have an opinion lol!!

I'm really looking forward to seeing them all tomorrow. We will not be home till some time on Monday so after tonight I am not going to be able to visit my favourite blogs till then. By the time it comes to Monday I am going to be really missing blogging.
Enjoy your weekend, see you on Monday.
