Hi there everyone, I am sorry I have been very slack in my blogging lately. I think I have spent too much time browsing other peoples blogs, and snuggling up in front of the TV during the horrible winter nights. It's not that I've been completely idle though, I have been busy recycling some of the Christmas cards that were sent to us,( not the hand made ones of course), and I always have some knitting or crochet on the go for when I am watching TV. I tend to just fall asleep if my hands aren't doing anything.
So today I will show you a couple of my recycled cards to get my blog brain going again.!
This second card was made in much the same way , with the fancy oval being cut from gold glitter card, and the holly swirl stamped with gathered twigs Distress Ink to match the foliage in the image, and the berries again coloured with the sparkle pen. To finish the card I added the tiny greeting, I don't know the make, and a red ribbon.
Every year I save bits from Christmas cards to use on something else and they stay shut away in a box never to see the light of day again. So this year I decided to use them before I got too involved with anything else and I am quite pleased to have made some nice cards with them and with the help of some stamps, cutting dies and embossing folders. I will probably show some more of them at a later date.
Right now I am hopping over to the Pixies Playground to link these up as I used some snippets of card to cut the mats from, and that is all that you need to do to join the fun at the playground.
Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comments which I enjoy reading and really appreciate.
