The Challenge #35 - Inspiration week

This one is gasp-worthy ... I'm not kidding...

 
Did I lie? 
 
I brought together a cute little bunch of Winnie & Walter roses again ... yellow roses ... my favorite of all.  Tucked into a little up cycled trimmed down cup from our favorite burger joint - Bagger Dave's!  I love their house-brewed Root beer and they always send you home with a full take-out cup and a healthy mitt-full of Tootsie Rolls... 'cuz that's how they roll - hee hee =]
 
 
Amy Tsuruta loves up-cycling - especially sleeves - you know that, right?  Speaking of amy T. she sent me a darling little t.y. card and some goodies... washi tape from her trip - gasping again!! - so I used it at the bottom of my card for a little grounding action and wrapped it right to the inside 'cuz  it's just too cute to stop!  The perfect sentiment is from Precious Remembrance Coffee Love stamp set. 
 
So will you be up-cycling?  Or pulling together your own favorite bouquet of flowers this week?  You know we'll love it, whatever you decide... I can't wait to see you in The Challenge gallery!
