This is for Crafts 4 eternity 57 sketch:


The spotted paper is an offcut and the red glittered card is a scrap from a Christmas cracker a couple of years ago - another card for Pixie's crafty snippets 6. The image is recycled from an old card. The scalloped edges are from Poundland.

The script scalloped edge card is the front of a card blank , the robin etc is a fabric square rescued from an old card, other bits and pieces from stash.

Colours are for Phindy's Friday 91 photo inspiration:


Why is it that the green strip across the bottom looks a different colour on the photo than it is irl? And they say that the camera never lies!

Still using up the scraps

More snippets have been used, so another one for Pixie's crafty snippets 6.

This card is for Repeat impressions what if J2512 sketch:


The red and white paper is an offcut from a magazine freebie, the glittered red card with swirls was recycled from a Christmas cracker from a couple of years ago and the Santa image was rescued from a card received.

Christmas blessings

Yet another Christmas cards - actually, I said I would do some more crafty sorting today ... and all I've done so far is make some Christmas cards - that's because I've come across some recycled bits that I'd saved, so I'm making cards as I go (but not much sorting happening really - lol!).

So here is the card with another recycled image, this time using sketch 2 for 52 Christmas card throwdown:

 Papers are offcuts of MME Lost and found Christmas and some free paper from a magazine, mounted on a dark brown card blank. So this is another one for Pixie's crafty snippets 6.

Colours are for Colour create 89 - lights or creams, light browns and dark browns:

Suzie 38: damaged:


I braved the cold of the back garden to take this picture of our damaged gate - it's been like this for ages and ages (can't remember when it wasn't like this) - perhaps we ought to have the slat replaced sometime!

Thinking of you at Christmas

This is for the colour challenge on 4 crafty chicks 75:


The background paper is Design House mounted on a dark brown card blank and the image was recycled from a card received.

Christmas dove

This is for the pixie cottage 106: clean and simple, using the sketch provided:


The background paper is an offcut that's been in my Christmas box for ages - think it was from English Paper Company, but so long ago so I'm not sure. The lovely sparkly dove image (much more glittery than it looks here) is recycled from a card received and mounted on to an offcut of holographic card (haven't used anything holographic like this for ages and ages - thought it was about time to use some of the offcuts left from years ago). So this is another card for Pixie's crafty snippets 6 and Unstampabelles 8: recycling.

Christmas music

This is for the sketch on Try stampin' on Tuesday 51:


I've used offcuts of some free Nancy Watts paper that I got with a Making Cards magazine some time ago and a red and silver band. The image is recycled from a card received and the bow was rescued from somewhere else. So most of the card was either free (well, technically I suppose it's not free when you consider the cost of the magazine!) and recycled - so this is for Timbro scrap mania 41: recycling.
