Three challenges in one

I didn't really intend to make a card tonight, but it just seemed to happen. I've used a recycled picture from an old card, inked the edges with green and pink and then mounted on BG sultry and two scoops papers and then on to a pink base card.

The BG challenge at the moment is 15: Going green - 'For this weeks challenge we would like to see you use some recycling on your creations, eg, cardboard, parts cut from another card, material from old clothes, postage stamps, it can be anything you like, the list is endless, also its not essential that the recycled item has to be old and used, you could simply use the inside of a business envelope for example as i know they can have some lovely patterns that can be used as backing papers etc, so have fun and of course not forgetting to use at least one item from basicgrey somewhere on your creation.'

There is also an ongoing recycling challenge on Arty Girlz, so I'm linking there too.

The current challenge on My Time to Craft is 41: Colour challenge: green - I feel this card has enough green on it to link for that.

I wonder if anyone can understand or explain why it is that I made this card that I didn't have to make, whereas I need to make one for John's birthday next Tuesday and still haven't done it. And actually as it's still Boxing Day I didn't intend to do any crafting till tomorrow - but it's just a bit of relaxation.

Crafty presents + a Christmas surprise!

First of all I thought I'd show the crafty presents I received for Christmas. This doesn't mean I didn't equally appreciate the non-crafty presents, because I did = it's just that this is a crafting blog, so here they are:

I also got a 'voucher' from John towards another set of 36 copic pens.

And when I logged on today I found out that I have won blog candy over at Claire's Crafty Corner! Take a look here to see what I've won!! Thank you so much, Claire - a lovely Christmas surprise.
