Blog Hop Reduce Reuse recycle

It is that time again..PTI blog hop!

This month's blog hop is all about reusing so.....
I reused some gift wrap and a ribbon that came on a Bath and Body Works parcel, some chipboard from a swap, and a button that fell of my shirt the other day..... and bang...there ya go.

The only un-reuseable stuff is the base and stamp-the rest were scraps

LSC #16 Merci

Happy Friday!!! Its LSC time again..... I am actually embracing my inner American visiting my In-Laws in Ohio for Thanksgiving...so please bear with me for not visiting your blogs...no WIFI?????? I may actually die!!!
I wanted to do something non seasonal and use some new colours- I love this combo sooo much.
I kept my card super simple- I wanted the paper and sentiment to be the focus. I inked the chipboard frame and heart so they would match.
Go check my Loonie sisters out to see what they have come up with.....
