At the moment, I am beaming! LeAnne will be so proud of me because I remembered her post from a couple of days ago AND I used another recycled product for my card! (She knows how I love "recycle" challenges!)

We had homemade potato chips from the other day, which we ate last night. I threw the bottom of the takeout container away but kept the top. This morning I looked at it and the light bulb came on for the Freshly Made Sketches (FMS293) Challenge by Karren

Et voila! 

My card base is Basic Black, the silver is the top of my takeout container, the mat for the sentiment is Basic Black cardstock punched out with SU's Pretty Label punch. The "thanks" was die cut from silver glimmer paper before we left FL almost two weeks ago. This was quick, easy, clean and simple! I don't normally do CAS but since I did, I decided to enter this in AAA Cards CAS Game #93.

I knew we would need a lot of thank you notes, but this one was a total surprise!!

Thanks for looking.


  1. the word sure pops against the black and well done on combining both challenges. Thank you for playing at AAA cards

If you leave a question, I will try to answer as soon as possible. However, you will need to leave an email address as this blog apparently does not notify you that I have replied. If anyone knows how to remedy that, I'd appreciate knowing!
