A pretty basic card, but I had been wanting to play with this paper and the ribbon I bought with it. Sometimes I find paper like this a bit tricky to use as I don't want to cover up too much - the larger trees seemed to fit the bill.
And, I promised to share the fab deal I got when I went thrifting with my Ma a couple of weeks ago - see photo below -
One trip to the Salvation Army Thrift Store on discount night - everything was 50% off:
- a fab pyrex dish
- TWENTY SEVEN books - some hardcovers, some classics and a few foreign language books (Japanese I think) that I thought might be fun to use on cards - gasp - I have never actually cut up a book to use on a crafting project - have you? It just seems so wrong - however, I can't actually read Japanese symbols....
- oh yes, and one glass plate for the bottom of my microwave (which almost fit, but didn't in the end)
This entire pile of goodies cost me a whole $20.80!
I am off to finish The Silver Chair with the boys.........
Hope you are having a great week!
