New Year...Time for Recycling!

Happy Monday!
Was your weekend wonderful? The sun was shining and the temperatures were warmer here in Texas, so my weekend was wonderful!

For today's card I've done a bit of recycling.  You've seen me recycle lots of things like HERE, HERE or HERE, just to highlight a few, but today my card was fun because I added a little bit of a Kleenex box for patterned paper.  Can you tell which paper it is?  It's the blue floral print.  I took the 3 colors of the flower centers and added papers to go with those to complete my card.
I thought it was fun to keep a bit of something that we normally just discard and don't think twice about.  I suppose you could say, my Kleenex box forever lives on in this cute little card I created! LOL!
I also made a lace flower that I centered with a vintage button on some pearl dew drops.  To make the lace flower I cut out a circle from white card stock and then used hot glue to adhere the lace in a circular motion from the outside edge to the center.  The lace flower was then created.
I also added a Kim Hughes stamp to a velum circle tag and a bit of pearl lace along the bottom border and my card was done!
A very simple card to make. Do you ever recycle? Are you like me and when you are shopping, you say, "Oh that would make a pretty paper to use on a card?" LOL! Probably not huh?  I really just love to recycle or up-cycle things to incorporate them into my crafts. Waste not Want not is what I always say.
Before you go.....I really MUSTACHE you a you like my nails? LOL! I couldn't resist that one!  I found these little vinyl mustache decals on Groopdealz the other day.  I got 40 decals for $1.75!  The shop I ordered from is on Etsy HERE.  Check her out, she's got lots of fun stuff in her shop!

Thanks for stopping by today. Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Pin It!
