DL.ART Thankful Thursday #171 - New Years

Happy Thursday and Happy Christmas Eve!! Christmas has finally arrived!! Santa's going to need to borrow Noah's Ark to deliver presents here...we've had strong storms and non-stop rain with temps in the high 60's. It totally doesn't seem like Christmas.


It's time for a new Thankful Thursday at DL.ART and the theme this week is New Years. I created a couple of cards and an ornament to celebrate 2016 using gorgeous Cabernet Ribbon from Diana's Vintage Vineyard Bundle.


For the ornament, I used the same technique I used for the Southwestern Bison ornament HERE. I also added some of Diana's beautiful Twine to the Poppystamps Stitched Button.


For the cards I used papers from my favorite Bo Bunny's Altitude stack and stitched it to heavyweight cardstock. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA. A Spellbinders Curved Borders 1 die was used beneath the flowers, which are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Cherry Lynn Flourishes, Memory Box Chloe Stems and Sue Wilson Faux Quilled Leaves were also tucked under the blooms. The happy die and new year stamp are from My Creative Time, with some Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves Distress Ink along the edges.


Now it's your turn...head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your New Years project!! I can't wait to see what you create :)


I won't be around blogland until after the first of the year. I'm headed down to my sister's house in Kentucky as she's having surgery. I'm not sure that I'll be able to get online so I will catch up with all of you when I return. I wish you all a safe and happy holiday season!! Merry Christmas!! Big hugs :)

  7. Gorgeous cards my friend! I just LOVE the paper~one of my favorites!!!! Your details are all amazing! The placement of everything is perfect! The dimension looks fabulous and wow, the ribbon~such a rich, pretty color! Love it!!
    I hope the weather shapes up for you especially since you are traveling! We had about 3 inches of snow~first started out as rain and then snow~so slippery under the snow. My son should be pulling in from NY today~so excited to see him! All the kids will be home. Looking forward to a lot of fun with these little ones!
    Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year! Be safe!
