Earth Friendly

Good morning and hope you are having a lovely Easter weekend.  We have a new challenge at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme this fortnight is Earth Friendly. We want to see you recycle or reuse something and it does not have to be  a card.  Here is what I did:

I took this

and made this

Before you say yummy the box was empty! The papers are some really really old ones from a scrapbooking set and the butterfly and tag were part of the set.  I used lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and a Magnolia Doohickey doily die.

Our sponsor is Zap Pow Designs with a prize of three of their images. Please go over to Card Makin' Mamas and see what the rest of the DT have made.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Wild Orchid Crafts - Three Different Flowers

A quick update on Rowan he put 1 oz on!! They are coming over for Easter Sunday dinner tomorrow so I can't wait!  Hope you have something lovely planned for the weekend sending big hugs to all of you. Take care xx
