Happy First  of  August  Friends,

Welcome to another DL.ART Thankful Thursday: LINKY  challenge

 and the Party will run until 11:55 pm PST August 31, 2013 
I am really looking forward to seeing all your creative projects. There were
597 entries  last month, I love seeing them and I love to come to your blog and visit. I sure hope your loving these linky parties, I know I do

This graphics 45  "Place In Time"12 x 12 paper pad I have been using for the monthly challenge design is really beautiful, each month it has scenes that are relevant to that particular month and the season of the year.

This month is no different I will use this pad all year for the linky challenges.

I particularly like the vintage look of these papers. For my base I used  PTI vanilla cream card stock and all the other papers are G-45.  I did use crinkle ribbon from my friend Karen (LSP) and viva Pearl pen, white ice.
It is my Hubs B-day today- but he follows my blog, so I am not posting his card until later.

I used the Tuesday morning sketches  # 209 for the design-

The PRIZE for this Linky party is:
