Earth day challenge

 Our card making group had an earth day challenge to use those items we usually throw away, since organizing my room I couldn't find some of the supplies I had saved but I had some more calendar images like I used on a card not too long ago, these are were on the back to show what each calendar page looks like. I can't remember if this banner sentiment was from a bag of goodies at the yard sale or if it was given to me, I just cut a tail on the end and cut off the string they had on it.

  • Old world stack paper
  • Butterflies from back of calendar
  • Thanks banner
  • sequins

I keep our cat Opie out of my craft room because he likes to chew on my clear stamps and other things, I have never had a cat that chewed on things like this one does.  Hubby came in to talk to me one day while I was making cards and Opie jumped up where I take my pictures, so hubby took a picture of him, he was on the move trying to figure out how to get down and away from my hubby so it is a bit blurred.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and I hope the week ahead is a good one!

Really pretty butterflies and card design Connie. Your cat is adorable, of course when he isn't chewing on your craft items.

Hugs Diane

Such a cute card and love the idea of using the calendar images! Your kitty is cute and so funny about him chewing on your craft things. They all have their own little personalities :) Hope your recovery is going well - thinking of you. Hugs and blessings xo Karen
