Recycle

Can you find what recycle item I used on this card?  I used a sketch from My Favorite Things for this card and when I was wondering what I would use for the strips I looked over at my empty Puffs tissue box and thought I could use that it is a pretty design, so I looked through my papers and found some I thought would work with it.


You can see the picture cast a bit of a shine on the tissue box strip.  While our Michaels was rearranging their store they had a bunch of their stamps quite cheap and I liked the collage look of this one so I picked it up.

DCWV-- Linen Closet paper
Hampton Art -- stamp
Spellbinders -- Classic Rectangles, Eyelet circles and Flower bouquet dies
Inking and shading done with Vintage photo distress ink
Liquid Pearls -- Copper pearl

I have saved a few boxes because I like the pattern so you may see some more tissue boxes on my cards :)  Maybe you will be inspired to look around and see what you would like to recycle and put on your cards.

Our Sunday School class is going out to a family run farm here in the area called Eckerts tomorrow night.  They have all kinds of family acitivities, apple and pumpkin picking,  they shoot pumpkins out of a cannon, have pig races, pony rides ect.  At the end of the evening they have fire pits that you can rent for your groups and we all get together roast hot dogs and have great fellowship. There is rain in the forecast so I am hoping it isn't very hard or very long.

Hope you have something wonderful planned for this fall weekend.
Thanks so much for stopping by,

Connie

Great card, Connie! I love using cards that people have given me for birthday's, Mother's Day, etc, and putting them on cards that I make :)
