Forever Friends

    This  card is another 6 x 6, I mounted my patterned paper on brown that was embossed, with some ribbon that matched the colors. Center isa metal frame that was in my junk box, I cut the friends forever out of a card that had been given to me and mounted it in the frame minus the plastic from inside the frame, I had several strips of the accordian sheets and put 2 together glued to a circle and then added some lace around the back of the accordian folded  piece.  This was a quick card to make.  I'm trying to really work hard and using alot of the things that I keep holding on to for some odd reason whether its I like it or just cant justify throwing it out yet.  Alot of times when you get cards from friends they are either just thrown away but all those store bought cards could find a new purpose if we just took the time to see if maybe we could reuse some of it, that way it is still bringing joy to others too.  Thanks for stopping by today so next time you get that store bought card from someone or even see them at thrift stores maybe you can find a new way of using them for your cards.
