For all of you "green" types

My Mom was a depression child and was into recycling before there was such a word. I used to think a lot of it was silly since I was part of the "replace" generation. As I got older I thought about my impact on the environment and what I can do to recycle. We participate in curbside recycling and I try to buy products that can be recycled or reused. I participated in a swap recently where recycled products was one of the main points. I used recycled cereal (or similar weight) boxes.

I ran across a technique in the September 08 issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts. The author had come up with a great way to soften a stamped image by overlaying a used dryer sheet. I tried it and was happy with the results. I used a card/envelope from the bargain bin of Michael's that came in a pack. On top of that I stamped some postal images from Limited Edition. The main image, the globe is from Stampabilities. The sentiment is from Inque. Hope you like it.
Until my next post,

  1. Great idea, the card looks great!
    I save soap (dial) boxes and cut a hole for match box drawer and glue decorative paper to it.
    Cute for a pair of earrings or ring.
    Luv your penny spin cards, the striped paper is nice touch in the window (where penny slides)
