A little recycling!

Morning all, once again the week has flown by and it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Catz. This week is a just for fun week- no sponsor and no prizes- but you still have the chance of your entry being chosen as one of our TOP 3 picks and winning a lovely badge for your blog! The theme is ANYTHING GOES and our lovely host Billie has picked a fun twist for the team, and anyone else who would like to use it, of Add a Balloon.
I made a card for my sister's bestie, an amazing lady who is celebrating her 60th birthday this week- she's a nurse- a ward sister on the HD Unit, dedicated to her work and patients even after struggling with own health, major surgery just over a year ago (yes, after working all through the Covid epidemic and all that entailed). She's now back at work full time caring for others- as I said, amazing! And on top of that she's nearly as crazy as my sister and knows  how to enjoy herself when she's off duty! 
I chose to use a favourite Bugaboo image, coloured with Copics and lots of added sparkle. 
Wy not give yourselves a treat and pop over to see what my lovely teamies have created this week- hopefully you'll be tempted to play along!
Thanks for visiting
