Third card for CHNC challenge 108

This is my third card for CHNC challenge 108: recycle or use something free.

The third sponsor of CHNC challenge 108 is Cedar Chest Designs - please click on the link to find out more about them and also follow the link to my challenge and, hopefully, join in and be in with a chance of winning a prize.

Cedar Chest Designs kindly supplied me with the 'O little town' digital image that I've used in this card. The background striped paper is an offcut from long ago from a Gorjuss Christmas kit. The silver mirror with the charcoal glittered berries and the piece of  sparkly black card across the top were from one of my Christmas crackers (the same one that the leaves came from that were used on my first card for CHNC challenge 108). I coloured the image with alcohol pens and mounted on to a snippet of Hunkydory white and silver card.

This card was based on the sketch for Critter 147:


The foiled card with the glittered berries is silver mirror (although it looks gold here) and the sentiment strip across the bottom is 'Just for you at Christmas' - very difficult to get a photo because of the reflection of mirror card.

Second card for CHNC challenge 108

This is my second card for CHNC challenge 108: recycle or use something free.

There are three sponsors for CHNC challenge 108 - please click on the link to get more info and, hopefully, join in and be in with a chance of winning a prize.

One of the sponsors this week is Crafts 4 eternity who kindly supplied me with the SnowRag image of the snowman - they also supplied me with some digital vintage tag images, so I used an empty one and added the text to it. Instead of colouring in the buttons on the snowman's coat I decided to use some little real ones. The background papers cut into squares were from free ones that came with a magazine well before Christmas and the image is mounted on to an offcut of blue mirror card.The snowman was coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.

The card was based on Maria's sketch for Sunday sketch & stamp 139:

CHNC challenge 108: recycle or use something free


Today's CHNC challenge 108 is to use something recycled or something that was free. This is my first card for that.

The lovely bauble on my card was part of a card with an M & S gift card - far too good to waste. The leaves at the top of the bauble were retrieved from a Christmas cracker - I have to confess that I bought the crackers with the thought of being able to recycle bits of them (more to come!) - and the good thing is that they were half price.

The silver and blue mirror card panel was from my offcuts box, mounted on to an A5 dark navy blue cardblank.
