Yay it's Friday!

It's Friday and you all know what that means....yep another Friday Mashup challenge!  This week Kim brings us another great challege, slightly away from normal, which I love. 

Kim is asking us to create a project that has a Belly Band, now if you're not sure what that's a strip of card that wraps around the card like a belt!  It usually just slides easily off so you can open your card.  The Mashup option is to use twine.

  1. Make a project featuring "A Belly Band".
  2. Or Make a project using "Twine".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project "Using Twine with a Belly Band".
*For Directions on how to make a Belly Band there is a link to a tutorial on the Friday Mashup site.
(sorry I scheduled this post before the link went up!)

I made my card with no stamping at all!  It is very generic slightly masculine card which may end up with a sentiment when the time comes to give it to someone.

Here is a photo of the card open, I used lots of circles of both card stock and DSP to add some interest, I couldn't decide on which stamps I wanted to use so came up with that!  LOL it works for me!

Head on over to the Friday Mashup challenge blog and check out the creations the very talented Design Team has made for your inspiration.
