R~R~R

The three R's! Yep, you know them.....reuse, recycle and reduce.....

Today's challenge at Crafting When We Can is to use something not intended for crafting.....

Well, mine uses some vellum that I have re-purposed! My DH worked as a drafter for an engineering firm....yep...

My vellum is a re-purposed map. I did run it through my Cuttlebug, but I can admit that vellum is not something I have, nor use well. Although, I do think this came out well!



This image is from Spesch Designer Stamps and is Samantha!

And, it will be showing up in future swap I am in! The sketch from Splitcoast ~ SC368. The card stock and papers are from my stash. I WILL get control of them this year!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have time to create for our challenge this week! Be sure to check it out!
HUGGZ,
April

Hi April! Love the color combination and the embossed vellum is very pretty! I had to laugh because I posted to my blog yesterday for the first time since June and it was for SC368, too! Great minds?? :-)

Oh, I like how the vellum turned out. The texture and white accents work well. Good idea!

Cute card, with that paper pieced slicker and umbrella!
