There's Magic in the Air 7-23-2012

It's time for another challenge at There's Magic in the Air - and this week it's given by Shirley - one of our very own talented and sweet DT members!  Shirley would like us to Waste Not - or, in other words, recycle something for your cards!

The sentiment sitting to the side of the card was cut from an old greeting card I received several years ago.  I have a whole tub of old cards I've saved over the years and decided to do something with them - recycle bits and pieces!  It will be done piecemeal - one card at a time as I need it - because I don't have time to sit and dismantle all the cards at one time.  These are all manufactured greeting cards.  Some I will save from family, special friends, etc. - but I might as well recycle and use what I can from the old cards - right?!

You can check out all the cute and wonderful images at Paper Cupcakes - grab a soda or coffee - and head over here.
