This is a great sketch to use as I continue my recycling efforts - so many images are quite large. Here I cut around the wings to make the image fit the A2 size. I added some gold sticker strips and also recycled a metallic gold package envelope for tha mat as well as the die cut "Joy". Sketch: Case this sketch.

For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving today...enjoy the day and I hope you have much to be thankful for. Our list is long - including faith, family, friends amd freedom . Later we will join several others at church - there will be a turkey dinner served for those who, like us, are far from family today. I have my green bean casserole ready to go!
Once again I found pieces of old cards to recycle - the lovely picture and two glittery pieces for the background. It does not show but the whole left panel is glittery, as are the snowflakes and the star. Sketch: Sketch Saturday "G" for glitter and Glory to God: Beccys Challenges CAS Christmas: Allsorts
I will have several more cards using this pre colored image from Beccy's Place. This time I needed a fairly quick card to include in my Shoebox...

I just got a set of Christmas dies from Peachy Cheap, This image and sentiment were included, though I ordered the set for others that were included. I am not sure about this - but I can see I need to use a solid background rather than this pattern paper. That will be for another day! The strips and mat are shiny gold. For day 6 at Beccy's Christmas challenge, I used embossed edges on the oval die cut, and ecru colored cs. Maybe I should add e for eyes - m y macular degeneration is bothering a lot today, and the print is jumping around a lot!

Da'sy 5 of Beccys challenges is to use colors - custard, moss, bisque and cocoa. I think the colors in the plaid (by Paper Studio) are at least close. I have used a pre colored image from Beccy's Place, and a sentiment from my computer files. Sketch: Stamplorations. Colors: Beccys Challenges Pretty papers: Allsorts Any: Simon Says Stamp Wednesday
When I selected this paper (from a Recollections Watercolor pad) I could see a glow at the top that reminded me of the angels on high - now that I have the card here, it is no longer very visible. Oh, well,,,

There are several family birthdays coming up. This is for our youngest granddaughter - she is on the Wings of Blue team at the Air Force Academy - yes, she parachutes out of perfectly good planes! I used chalk and fussy cut the image - it is from my files but I forgot to list the source. The planes are clip art, and I used an embossed cloud background - lightly sanded.

The image and slim blue panels are from the front of an old card; the embossed stars panel is the back of that same card. Whether you call it altered, upcycled or recycled, I saved nearly all the card from the trash! The other bg panel is burlap ribbon. I hope I will be able to complete quire a few cards for Beccy's November challenge. The text is computer generated. Sketch: Mojo-Monday A for altered: Beccys Challenges
