Up-Cycling

Not many of you know me personally, but my family affectionately refers to me a the "Recycle Nazi". They mean no disrespect, and neither do I, but I am a bit fanatical a out recycling. I keep everything I can....almost to the extent of hoarding 'things'. One of the things I have kept...just knew I would need them some day...is the rolls from my ATG tape. Yep, the little white plastic innards! Can you find one on my card?



This card is for a swap on SCS, hosted by Jeanette, the Forest Ranger. Our theme was Rain in the Forest!


Thanks for stopping by!
HUGGZ!

Great upcycling April. I get in trouble for hoarding things too! Carol x

Cute Card April--I think that image is so cute. And, I love how you used the ATG roll inside--I just toss mine and need to come up with something new!

Fun card! That is so seriously creative up-cycling. Sweet little scene. When I first joined SCS, I did a swap with The Forest Ranger and she helped me learn to get around some on the site. She is a doll. I need to go look and see what she has been up to. Hugz!

Oh my goodness!!! I see IT, April! I love it!!! I actually have considered saving those things, too, but never could seem to figure out what I would do with them, so I didn't. Now, yet again, you've inspired me!

I can't believe I actually will get one of these cards, too! YAY me!!!

Oh nice recycling! This is soooo cute! I keep the innards from my mini glue dots packaging. It's a circle like that just hard cardboard. You have given me ideas! :)
