You win some, you lose some ...

... for me?  It truly is all about playing the game ... and remembering to play the game - that is a big win for me!!

I was so honored last week to be among the breathtakingly beautiful cast of players at Freshly Made Sketches.  Such sweet designers, at FMS.  So!  Here I am again for this wonderful sketch from Jen Mitchell:
I find craft supplies in the oddest places ... check this out ... oh.  XL - must have been a tie for Tom...
 



Yep.  Anywho .. could I throw it away?  NO way. 

 
Add a little Heidi Swapp die-cut star, a scrap of delightful limeade, and two or three little SSS stamps - heat embossed in silver, and Bob's your Uncle!  For FMS203.  That is one CAS card!

I love when you can re purpose something! Your card is clean and perfect. Love the cut out smile with the color peeking through and the yummy silver emboss.

Fabulous CAS design, and your tag is beautiful...What a great find! I love your crisp, clean star and silver embossing, especially with the lime green alphas on your die cut sentiment! You've really out-done yourself with creativity on this card, Michele!

LOL tie tag, too cute! My other half calls me a hoarder, but you just never know when something is going to be just the perfect touch! One CAS card for sure!

Love your CAS card with that recycled tag Michelle, you made a fabulous CAS card and at the same time, manage to use something we all throw out all the time, very clever indeed.
Love the die cut word "SMILE" with that great limeade color in the back of it, this draws your eyes to that fantastic star.
Thank you for sharing.
Maria.

Michele...you crack me up! I save ribbons from gift bag handles and string that holds the tags from a pair of new jeans. So fun, right! This is simply fabulous and so clever, love your sweet tag and that star is sweet.

Hmmm....thought I left you a comment on this one; maybe my blogger was being stupid...Anyhoo....Love this card! That green is just the right color for this little beauty. And I'm all for reduce, reuse, and recycle! Great little addition to bring your eyes right where they're supposed to go! Great card. Bev

How cute!! I LOVE that you used some recycling on this card. Brilliant!! The green is fabulous and that black tag really draws the eye in. Great design!!!

Oh, and I created a card for your MUSE challenge. It was quite a challenge!! Thank you for the inspiration!!!

Now that's what I call upcycling. Michele. Who'd have thought a clothing tag could make such a statement on a card. I guess you did. ;)

Cat Craig said...

Yes remembering to get the card done by challenge deadline can sometimes be a task with a capital T. Fun take on the sketch.

Star-splendid plus a score on up-cycling the tag. CAS-ilicious!
