No it's time for the Blogger Challenge this week which was: Reuse/Recycle. I must admit that most of the time I really don't like these kinds of challenges. They are hard for me to figure out something to do and I really don't think I do a very good job on them. That is until this week.
Well today is the day. Below you will see my card with the awesome background that I recycled off this advertisement and then I also reused a postage stamp that was in a bunch of old stamps that belonged to my dad. He was a Stamp Collector but these were just extras that he had given our son to work with and they've been stored in a box in our upstairs for 12 years now so it was time one of them got some use out of it!
Next up my dad also had a Model Train set that he enjoyed working on. I bought the stamp of the train (Stamp Francisco) to make him a card for one of his birthdays. He would have loved this card too.
The card base is: Cajun Craze layered with Peach Parfait that was distressed with the cutter distressing tool and some Peeled Paint Distress Ink (Tim Holtz-Ranger). Then I distressed my background panel with, Brushed Corduroy ink (Tim Holtz-Ranger). I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts) right on the background panel with Elegant Eggplant Ink and added 3 Plum colored brads. The train was stamped with the Peeled Paint ink. I also lightly stamped the Itty Bitty Background stamp over the train panel and mounted it on a Nested Rectangle of Old Olive. Then I added the postage stamp and mounted them with foam mounting tape to complete my card.
That's it for me today. I've had another BUSY week and yet another dental appointment. This one went way better then the last one though. I'm ready for the weekend. Don't forget to stop by the other BC members Blogs - Located on my
