DL.ART Thankful Thursday January linky challenge


Hi  Friends,

Happy New Year! again

Welcome to the first linky challenge of 2014. I decided to post it a day early so the folks who had the day off yesterday could enter.

The  DL.ART Thankful Thursday: January LINKY  challenge
will be open until 11:55 PST  January 31, 2013

 Anything goes. Link up one entry per day. For future linky parties I will have the Mr. Linky icon up at 9:00 am.PST  and the Party will run until 11:55 pm PST the last day of each month
I am really looking forward to seeing all your creative projects. 

Without further ado I have one to share with you.

Does this look like six empty TP rolls?

I have had these TP rolls for awhile and  I have seen so many mini albums made from them, that I just had to try it. After I die cut and stamped the flower  I made the flower 3-D by using a burnishing tool to make it form a shape.

The DP papers  are from heartfelt creations, along with their stamps and dies

  I used Viva moss green paint and Viva pearl pen where ever you see a pearl

I punched holes at the top with my bind-it-all, then I ran organza ribbon through

I cut an extra piece of DP for the top to give it stability and add a  little extra something

I punched holes in the DP, then I added thin ribbon for the pulls

Here is the PRIZE for the January Linky party
A $15 credit to my ETSY store
