Good morning crafty friends

I hope you had a good weekend, such a change in the weather yesterday, sun gone, rain and wind arrived! 

It didn't take much to up-cycle this card.  I love the colour aqua and this card was so pretty to just put through the shredder.  My sister died over 10 years ago, sadly it was two weeks after her birthday and two weeks before her wedding.  I now only have sister in laws, but one is very special to me (they all are, it's just this one has been in my life for 50 years and has always been like a sister) so I will keep this for her birthday in October and add an appropriate verse when I find one suitable 

Does anyone else make cards many months beforehand?  I have a box to keep the 'family & friends' cards 

 I made the base for an 8"x8" card using aqua cardstock, resized the card front to adhere to black panel then onto the card base and that was it :)

  3. Hi June this is a stunning card. I love a bit of recycling. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  4. Beautiful up cycled card June. I do make cards several months ahead and then nearer the time often change my mind and do something else.

  5. Hello June, absolutely gorgeous card, great job of recycling. How sad about your Sister, lovely to have such a special friend though who is just like a Sister, Kate x

  6. Stunning card, June and great recycling too. I've got several cards made for family members celebrating birthdays later in the year. I just need to remember that I've already made them when the time comes! xx
