Moving Along With Recycling

Good Morning bloggers and isn't it just with all the lovely weather. It's been beautiful here in Sunny Hunny and the sunshine is very good for business!! Forgive me for not visiting you all so much it will quieten down after the Bank Holidays and normal services will be resumed lol.
It's Thursday again already which means DT time for me over at Moving Along With The Times and this week the lovely Lisa my Blogging Buddy has chosen the theme
as tomorrow is 'Earth Day' (said in my best alien voice) All our new team members are joining us proper today so please head over to the main challenge blog for links to their blogs.
We are sponsored this week by Ladybug Crafts Ink and the winner gets a stamp of their choice (lots to choose from - and trust me you''ll want them all)
We were given some lovely images to play with and I chose 'Cheeky Jack' I just love him - I love kids with a bit of character lol
I'm not too good at this recycling thing, (unlike the fabulous Lisa as you'll see when you check out her make for this challenge) I struggled with what to use and I'd been telling my lovely Son to pack away all the free CD's that were piling up on the coffee table from his PS magazines. I don't think he has noticed that he has one less lol I also added some recycled buttons one a little prematurely as it was still attached to my cardi when I spotted it was a perfect match!
This was really hard to photograph as I kept getting my reflection holding the camera in the CD (not something that added to my card) The scrummy paper is 3 bugs in a rug.
Don't forget to head over to MAWTT to check out what the fabby design team have recycled and also Ladybugs Craft Ink our fabulous sponsor for some fantastic goodies with superfast service!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - You've Been Spotted
Cupcake Craft - Lots Of Layers
Ladybugs Crafts Ink - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Recycle Something
Papertake Weekly  - Spots 'n' Stripes
Charisma Cardz.  - Jokes & Laughter

Hi Laurie,

Aww this is fab, love the colours and layout. The boy is SO cool, I love his undone shoelace! and his gorgeous blond hair! You made me LOL about the button and your reflection in CD !!!! I would like to have a go at recycling but it's out of my comfort zone, which is all more reason to do it!!!! will see if I can find anything. I might even take inspiration from your CD idea as I have loads of 'coasters' that my DVD Recorder has spat out and ruined! LOL

Val said...

Wow - this is amazing. Very funny as well.

Liza said...

Gorgeous work, I love all the layers. Thanks for joining us this week at CCC.

What a darling card, Laurie. Love your use of the CD's and your cardi buttons:) I am glad that you were out of your comfort zone and did such a wonderful job. I guess that is why these are called Challenges!! I have been reading about "Bank Holidays." Can you tell me why the banks are closed?
Thanks for joining us this week at Craft Your Passion for our "You've Been Spotted Challenge." Hope to see you again on Monday for our next challenge. Barbara GDT XX

A fab card Laurie, the angles and curves balance perfectly and gorgeous colours too. You have taken recycling to another level with pinching the button from your cardi - you did make me giggle.
Enjoy the Easter weekend.
