It's a Party Card

This was a fun, quick card I made for a few different challenges. There are so many fun blog challenges out there, but I've hardly gotten to scrap the past few days so I'm WAY behind. Just trying to catch up... slowly.

This card was made using the April 18th Card Sketch from My Sketch World... Lucy just ROCKS the sketches, 'nuff said!!

I also made it for Card-a-licious Challenge #20... to make a birthday card using blue, green and circles.

This card also counts towards 365 Cards Challenge #52... to use a brad, blossom and circle on a card.

I'm SOOOOO ready for my 3-day weekend, bring on the scrappiness!!!

So, what are YOU doing to be GREEN?!?!?!

We've been working on this all year so far. I've more anal then ever about flipping lights off when they're not being used... no one in my house knows how to do this I don't think (and they're all 16 and older, UGH!!). We made our own compost pile months ago, and added things to it all winter. Once it came time to plant our veggie garden we had lots of compost that we worked into the ground before planting. This year will be the BEST veggie garden we've had to date. Lots of stuff growing already. Also getting more into reusing items around the house, and recycling things too. :o)

Cherish Card

Yesterday's challenge over at the 365 Cards Blog... to create a card using green, purple and orange... had me stumped, but not for long.
