It is Thursday, and I am back......

with just one card, but one is better than none, right? How are you guys doing today? I woke up this morning with a headache, once again :(:(. But I ate a little something and pulled out the heavy drugs, my migraine medicine, and I am feeling much better. Thank goodness!!!!!!


All right, back to the card. My card today actually fits into the SCS challenge today for Ways to use it where they are literally going green. Well, I did both, I used the color green and used recycled paper ;). Good friends of ours are celebrating their 36th Wedding Anniversary and I wanted to make them a special card. For this one I got to use some yummy crocheted trim I bought over at http://www.limelightpapercrafts.com/ and some more of that cool moss recycled paper, which is also from there. Mandy is super quick shipping things out, my order was packed and shipped the same day and got to me all the way from NC within 2 days!!!!


Sorry, got a little carried away, again. The card is 5.5"x5.5" and is pretty thick. I have tons of layers, but this one will be hand delivered, so I am not worried about it. I thought I had a "Happy Anniversary" stamp, but I can't find it, so I went to my trusty SU Elegant Inspirations set and pulled out the 1 Corinthians 13:13 stamp which is so very fitting for an Anniversary card, don't you think? Have a look at





Now these three remain........

Recipe:

Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, PTI Vintage Cream, K&Company DP, moss colored recycled paper from http://www.limelightpapercrafts.com/ ,
