Sweet Dreamers Challenge #2 (Recycle)

I recycle paper, plastics, aluminum etc., but this one stumped me. How was I going to use something recycled on a card? Then I remembered the bag of ribbons I had saved from gifts and gift bags! See husband, my hoarding tendencies come in handy sometimes! I think this pink ribbon came on a package from my last birthday. In the spirit of recycling, I also decided to try to use only scraps. So no whole sheets of cardstock were cut into for this card, LOL. It sounds like one of those research statements "No animals were hurt..."

Can't really tell from my photo, but the little bear's head is on a dimensional, to help him standout a bit. The Stampingbella sentiment was perfect with this image. I think I'll use this one for a thank you card for someone who has been especially kind to me.

We are going to the NY Mets game today. It's an afternoon game and will be the first real baseball game the boys have gone to. They are looking more forward to the food than the game, I think! They keep talking about hot dogs and cotton candy. Supposed to get rain in the later afternoon, hope it holds out for a while so we can see some baseball!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!
