#54 at 365 Cards

Good Frday morning to all. I woul first like to thank everyone who stops by my blog to take a peek and especially those of you who are kind enough to take the time to leave a commentt. :-)

Ok now yesterday's challenge at 365 Cards was to reuse at least one recylable item on your project. I decided to use an old technique (which may be new to some) reusing a small can that usually contains some sort of fruit snack. The can has to have a pop top and a bottom that can be opened with a safety opener (the kind that separates the can's lid but then the lid can be glued back on. This leaves the pop top in tact so the receiver can pop the top.

The can was one of my reusable items, the blue paper is from a bday card my dh received last month and the Celabrate tag is from a soda can. I cut a piece of the soda can and then ran it through my CB using a smal EF. I then colored it with American Crafts markers. I took a picture of what I usually put inside the can. I made up the little poem and basically it can be used for any type of celebration. I hope that you enjoy this project and maybe will give it a try yourself.

I hope you have a great weekend and find a little time to stamp something. Tomorrow is my dd's Prom and I am as excited as she is. I am picking her up after school and going for pedicures which we both love. Tomorrow I will be doing her hair and makeup for her which I so enjoy. I picked her dress up a couple of days ago from the alteration shop and it fits her like a glove. I will post some pictures as soon as I have them. To those of you who have babies or toddlers dont' blink because all of a sudden they are walking up on stage to get their high school diploma. My advice to you is to savor every moment good & bad because these will be your precious memories some day.

I will be back later with a card for today's challenge at 365 Cards stop by and check it out. All you need to do is click on the icon on my right side bar. See you soon.

Peace Out
