Forest Swap...using a recycled item.

Good Morning Friends!

Today's card is the one I submitted recently for a card swap that did with my friends at Splitcoaststampers, a online craft site. We needed to use something that was repurposed/recycled.

The image is from Deedee's, and the recycled item was the vinyl ribbon.

Have a great Saturday, and thank you for stopping by.

Calendar Girls April Challenge

Hi Friends!

This month our challenge was given to us by Terry....

Our April ChallengeHello everyone and welcome to the April Challenge!!

We have all heard the saying “April showers bring May flowers”…..I know we are all tired of winter and looking forward to Spring rains that bring out the Summer flowers!

My challenge to you is to show me your April showers!

I have 2 requirements for you:

1. Use an image with a duck, a puddle, an umbrella or anything resembling rain or water!
2. Use a fun technique on your card that is “water” related!

 For my fun technique I used Crystal Effects to enhance the puddle, and Fun Flock on the cattails. Also on the inside of the card is a Prima flower.

Hope you like my card!
