Out with the old and into the new.

Me again tried to enter this and it all went wrong....

so will try again ..... !!!!

The sun is shinning so the garden is calling..... well a bit later.

How are you today - well I hope and enjoying life on life's terms.

Here is my card for today

Well this was a bit of a challenge for me - trying to think what to recycle. 

Bingo - thought about my old birthday cards. 

 So cut one down and mounted it onto "red" background.

 Got out my AlteNew inks - Ruby Red and stamped a Tonic butterfly
die cut it out. 

stamped onto white scrap and green scrap 

Die cut out the butterflies - deciding on the Ruby Red on white.

Mounted 2 Ruby Red butterflies onto the now topper
and a sentiment.

I hope you like it

I would like to enter this card for the following 

Butterfly challenge - R is for recycle and or ruby red

Thank you for popping over to see me.

Still got my head going round for this Wedding watch this
space - probably make loads as I can not decide what to do.

Have a great Friday the "*"th

  2. gorgeous card... I LOVE the buttefly stamp/die combo... very pretty :) xXx

  3. I try to recycle something in every piece of art I make, so this would not have been a problem for me. Of course, I could NEVER make recycled art look that good, because you have a special knack for creating beautiful pieces.

    Have a super Friday and weekend, too!
