Going green in more ways than one

This is for Saturday sketch 142 on 411:

and also for their colour inspiration 114:

The background of my card was taken from an envelope I received:

so it's good for the recycling challenge on Inky impressions 32, although I apologise that there's no actual stamping, but the edges of the quotation have been inked.

It's also for:

Creative card crew 46: 'going dotty ...'
ABC: 'Q for quotation' - the friendship quote is a rub on
Penny's challenges: 'another birthday challenge'
Fussy & fancy 6: 'green'
La -la land 30: 'recycle'
Simon says: 'a splash of green' - use BG papers if you have them - the spotty papers are BG June bug
Another 'happy birthday' card for Kaboodle 26
Another for Cupcake 82: 'going green'
Another for Incy wincy 33: 'green'


This card is my interpretation of the sketch for Don't waste your Thursdays 24:

The current colour challenge on Design Dollies is 'red, orange and one neutral, so these are the colours I've used.

The spots are good for Crafty creations 59: 'spots and dots' and the same topic for One stop craft 71; also Creative card crew 46: 'going dotty'.

It's also another for Humble pie on Town scrapper: 'three buttons' (not easy to see red on red paper, but they are there in the lefthand corner) Crazy 4 challenges 28: 'masculine cards', Creative inspirations 29: 'male card' and Crafty catz 23: 'something for the boys'

The spotty paper is BG June bug and the other two pieces are from my scraps box. The dream circle is a rub on, but it didn't rub on well, so I had to touch it up with pen (doesn't look brilliant, but will have to do now).

WOYWW - well, it is still Wednesday

It's been a day of interruptions. I was going to take some photos for WOYWW much earlier in the day, but one thing led to another and time went by.

If you haven 't come across WOYWW yet, it's to be found on Julia's blog 'stamping ground' - it's lovely to browse the comments and visit other blogs to see what's on their workspace today. And why not show your workspace too?

There isn't much to see today. I'm showing the end of work surface where my paper rack is housed. Earlier today I was looking for paperss to do my LO for tomorrow's Salt challenge - I couldn't find what I wanted - and ended up taking quite a few of the papers off the rack - and now they need sorting - The two or three bottom shelves that you can't see are OK - they are particular manufacturers, but I never know whether to sort according to type, colour, manufacturer ...

I didn't find what I wass looking for, but chose some papers in the end that I was happy with, so my LO is done, but can't be shown till tomorrow. There's just a bit of evidence here of some cut outs from my cricut:
