Friends Make Everyswing Better

It’s time for another challenge with Kraftin Kimmie!  This week Melanie has challenged us to re-use or recycle something on our cards.  The timing was perfect for me as I recently ripped apart quite a few cards to put together a portfolio of colored images.  Lots of parts and piecing lying around!  :)


I chose to use Cheryl Alger’s new Springtime Lulu set for this week’s challenge.  I ♥ Lulu.  The crocheted trim along the side, as well as the buttons, were reused from a previous project.

I colored with my Copics and added grass/ground with colored pencils.

To see more projects for this week’s challenge, head on over to the Krafty Blog HERE.  If you decide to play along, be sure to post a link there on the Krafty Blog for your chance to win a free Calla Lilly image as used today by Melody.  :)

Don’t forget to check out this week’s Frugal Friday specials (HERE)!  And wait until you see what’s up with KKS next week!  There’s a special little something GO-ing on.  :)

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a great day!
