So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  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".*
*Belly Band: A strip of card stock (or you can use ribbon) wrapped around the middle of a card like a belt. It is made slightly loose around the card so it can be slid off to read the text beneath or inside.
(not sure why the two different ways it saved it but seems I can't changed it )sorry....
So here is my try at the Friday Mashup...
My band is made of the words Merry Christmas on the ribbon...
Hope you like the card .....
Recollection Red paper...

Hi Judy -

Looks like you've been productive Judy - you are really good at following the sketches and coming up with lovely takes on them. hehe, I'm glad we get the simple one though, for its going to take a mind shift for me to get creative again.

Very nice, thanks for showing and sharing,

Love ya,
SIL
