Repurposing...cards too???

Hello everyone, happy Tuesday!! We're getting ready to head over to DD #2's house for a birthday dinner for her boyfriend and I wanted to share his card. So I made this card last July for a couple of challenges and it was actually an invitation. You can see the original post here. Well like most scrappers, I NEVER throw anything away and have 2 big boxes filled with all my cards. Knowing that DD gave her boyfriend a new bbq for his birthday, I thought this card was perfect. Luckily for most of my challenges I don't finish the inside of the cards, so I pulled this card out and voila! I repurposed it as a birthday card! And since I was short on time, this worked perfect!! I used a Pink By Design stamp for the front, and the sentiment stamp is from My Craft Spot. Easy peasy! They're planning on a bbq tonight, which should be interesting since it's been raining ALL day! Oh well, should be fun anyway. I hope you have a great evening, and as always, thanks for stopping by!
