finishing up with the green

so this wraps up a busy cardmaking week of "green-themed" cards. i have done so much recycling of materials and weird stuff, and i'm looking forward to just a regular day of craftin' tomorrow! honestly, i'm not a wasteful cardmaker. i hang onto all of my scraps, no matter how small, and i'll use up the tiniest strips for trims, or mounts, or i'll chop 'em up with punches and dies. at the end of a full cardmaking day, i might have enough trash to fill a coffee mug.

so i've tried to put together a nice series of cards for my hubbin to bring to the cafe downtown, and hopefully they'll sell at "Green Day".

these two bring my total to 11. i had hoped for 12, but i'm all kinds of achy tonight, and was working in slow-mo. so this one is for two challenges - C.R.A.F.T. challenge #17, to use pink and brown, and for Friday Sketchers, the following sketch:



more coffee snugs on here, the scalloped trim is from a box of CHOCOLATE MINT WATER (!!!) that my hubbin bought, plus i used up the last of the brown packaging from the wedding favour. the corrugated flower is my favourite, and i punched MANY of these with my scraps. i plan to use 'em up this weekend. :)



the next one isn't for any challenge in particular. but i liked the pink and brown one enough that i wanted to make another that was similar, and simpler.



and now, off to brusha-brusha, and get myself ready for bed. i have a visitor coming in the morning! :D

  2. Hope you feel better soon! Love that trim on the first card - it's something special and pretty (not to mention uniquely recycled!). These 'green' cards will be a success, I think!
