Wee Memories Challenge 47

It has been a long time since I have had a chance to play along at Wee Memories! I thought the "green" theme was so fun I just had to join in! I went along with the "green" theme here because several pieces on my card are scraps! So it's a recycled card..kinda! :)

Here is my "green" card for the week!

Today is the last day to link up for this challenge!  Click HERE to play too!


OH and I have to share one more thing!  Check this out....


My dad made this for me a couple weeks ago!  It is pretty much like the one Nichole had on her blog but he changed several things!  Instead of 6 shelves for ribbon...yes I WISH I had that much PTI ribbon...he made me 4 shelves for ribbon and 2 for CD's!  I have all 80 some sets right there!  I haven't painted it yet because we are getting ready to remodel the basement and I am not sure if I want it to be white or black.  My scrapbook room is Red and Black so we will see what happens when I move into a new room!  (Yes that means I have to get rid of my gorgeous retro wall mirrors you see here!  Man I am going to miss those. {insert sarcastic grin here}


Thanks for coming by today!  Have a great Friday!

Keva said...

What a pretty card! Love the colors together and that Reto background looks fab!

Do you think your Dad would come to TN to build me one of those? :)

I love your card, Laurie! It's so pretty and refreshing. Thank you for joining us at Wee Memories. :)

NancyS said...

As always, Laurie, your card is GORGEOUS! Love the pink, green, brown color combo.

Lucky you to have a talented Dad! As a woman who has black furniture in my studio, I suggest you GO WHITE! The black shows everything, and it's very hard to find clear embellishments on black. Good luck on your remodeling project. What fun it will be when it's done...can't wait to see the pictures.

Ok, forget the card. You have the BEST HUSBAND EVER! How incredible is that storage shelf? WOW...I'm drooling here...

Sharon D'Amico said...

Is there a video somewhere that shows how you tie those bows and then glue them on top of the ribbon? I tried afew times and couldn't get them to look like yours. TIA

Kathy said...

Love your card,even if it is "recycled". And I loved Nichole's shelves too but thought I'd like to alter them...now you've gone and done it so I'm showing yours to my dear hubby and maybe, just maybe I'll get something close to it!:)
p.s. just have to add I do not have 80 PTI sets-but I sure wish I did!

Kara said...

What an awesome dad!!! That's awesome!!

Brandi said...

What a great idea to use "green" to mean recycle. Great thinking! I just love that flower ribbon on your card. I keep telling myself I am going to buy some but have yet to. Your Dad is awesome! How cool is that organizer and I can't believe you have so many PTI stamps. You are one lucky girl!

Darla said...

Wow, great card and I am not sure which I am drooling more over, all your stamps and ribbon or your fabulous new storage!! Me thinks all the PTI! :)

Beautiful card. I love the PP and the flowers are so beautiful!!

Envy over here for your lovely shelf. My father-in-laws handy, but I could never leave everything open. My daughter would never leave it alone ... she has a habit of re-organizing my stuff when she can. ;D

Jen Carter said...

Your new unit looks great all loaded up! What a nice dad you have! :) Your card is super pretty! Great job on the green challenge. Love the retro background, that is coming in my order!

Michelle said...

Your card is beautiful, as always. But, I have to say that your new storage unit took my breath away (actually it made me drool! lol!) So lucky to have a handy dad who's kind enough to make you one of these. I really like how it stores the ribbon because it's so easy to take out the spool you need. Enjoy it!

Rebecca said...

Great card. I love the retro feel it has!

kasia c. said...

Gorgeous card! I love the colour combo, the pink is striking against that green panel. :)
