Recycle.... Like the other Patty Sue!

What do you get when you take this:

Combine it with this:

You get this:

I have a couple of New Years resoultions... I don't usually
make resoulitions, because I never keep them. Well this year
I am making it my goal to have our newly aquired medical bills
payed off in 10 months. That means very little new stamping stuff!
Thus my 2nd resoultion.... use up some of my stash! I have soooo
much! Ok onto my card. DH recieved this musical get well card. I 
couldn't toss it so I recyled it! My name twin Patty Sue did some
recycling so I thought I would follow suit! My whole card is SU, 
except for the flower and pearls. The inside mimicks the sketch! 
Well that's it for today... I have club tomorrow and I'm NOT ready!

This is absolutely gorgeous Patti! I love everything about it! I'm with you on the New Year's resolution! I have so much stuff I think I could make enough cards to last me a lifetime and still have supplies left over!

Happy New Year and great start on your resolutions. I'm trying the same thing as well....notice I said, I'm trying. It's only the second so we'll see! :D Your card is so pretty and I love the lace and pearl border. Beautiful!
Thanks for sharing! :o)

Amen Terri & Patti, I have stuff on top of stuff, really the only thing I would need to keep buying is glue LOL. I love your card Patti,

Patti,
You're not the only one in that boat. I think most of us are cutting back for one reason or another. I also have piles of stuff. Though I may purchase a few stamps here and there it will not be without a coupon. I love this card .... the colors and details are spectacular!

Patty said...

Well, your twin thinks you did a fantastic job with the recyle. Don't you just love it when you can use all of that "stuff"? Great card!

Hi Patti! Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog. I really struggled with my decision to stop blogging but will continue to visit all of my favorite blogs on a regular basis. I know it's been a while since I have visited you...with the holidays and all, I have been a little lax but hope to get back into a regular routine now that the holidays are over. I'm off to see what I've missed since my last visit. The best to you and your family in 2011!

This card is simply stunning. I wish you luck on your new year's resolutions. I've been resolving for a couple of years now to use my stash. I'm SLOWLY making my way through it. Slow and steady wins the race, I always say! Happy new year!

Oh wow, what a great idea. I may try recycling some of the ones I have. Love the sentiment Patti! Beautiful card. A very Happy New Year to you and I hope all your dreams and wishes in 2011 come true.

Oh My Goodness, this is beautiful! I too am trying to cut back. I only buy things on sale. Basically all I really need is cardstock and ocassionally some glue and seldom some new stamps. Being unemployed has really put a crimp in my style, but I do have time to play now!
