Plenty of recycling here!

Post by lyndaejane on Fri Feb 04, 2011 6:33 pm

This is a card that's worthy of the swap, except that I'm about to send it to my oldest friend, Ray:



Card blank is a bit of leftover card, hence the odd size; the white piece with the vellum stitched on it was from a used card - the little gold leaf was cut from a used card and covered up the tear where I took off a star sequin; the tag is a clothing tag - it's a double tag and there was printing inside, which I've covered with a Happy Birthday greeting cut from a used card; the black velvet ribbon is reused (can't remember what from) and the insert is made from a reclaimed piece of white paper.

Still can't believe that Kate has no recycled stuff in her craftroom.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

Lovely card , i was having an Italian meal on Friday night ( a friend of a friend's birthday) and someone gave one of the other ladies a box of Lily O'Brien chocolates, she opened them and shared them out after the meal, and i got one choccy but also the super green ribbon, with a bow and i also 'disposed of' the box itself, it was very good quality card..what was i supposed to do...leave it on the table???? that would have been rude.

It did cause a stir in the pub later when i asked someone to pass me my phone out of my pocket and she pulled out the box lol
