~~ Re-cycle at Fab'n'Funky Challenge ``

Hello everyone,
Hope your week is going well. 
 It's been awhile since my last post...so many places to go..
things to do that have taken me out of my craft room.

And yes I'm going to moan about the weather.  Good grief it feels like fall
as I write this post.  With the high winds and heavy rainfall the lake looks wild.
  The waterfront is all taped off due to the danger of crashing waves coming ashore.
Definitely need your wellies out there.

Today starts a new challenge at
where our lovely host Jools has chosen the theme "recycle"

I've recycled a lovely quilled image that was on a card I received
a few years ago.  Sentiment was created in Word and the design
paper is from my stash. 



I hope you get a chance to stop by the challenge this week
and check out the wonderful inspiration from my team mates.
hugs,
Pat K xx

My card today is for our sweet granddaughter for her very special 16th birthday.
I coloured a digi from Aurora Wings called Flower Ballerina available

This is a 6 3/4 inch card so there is a little trick when using 12 x 12 inch cardstock.
Here is a picture of the back with an explanation.  Hope this helps.
