My lovely blogland friends

Saturday, 9 January 2010


Its lovely and warm in blogland, a different story outside though - sooooo much snow and ice this week its been a nightmare getting to work. I haven't had much energy for crafting when I've got in from work so as I was up early I've been up to my craftroom for a crafty fix. This card is for 2 challenges:
Cynthias challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog which is to recycle something from the festive season and also for the  first Bah Humbug challenge (good luck with the new challenge blog gang!!) which is also recycling. This is what I came up with

I've used the cover of a box of Body Shop goodies as an acetate overlay on this card, which is probably why it hasn't scanned very well. The backing paper is a lovely freebie from Glenda which is available on her blog .... Artylicious. The stamps are also from Glenda - I think the Christmas Flourish themplate. They are just stamped on to the bp and matted onto some scraps of red mirri card.

I'm hoping to have lots of time for crafting this weekend as its too cold and icy to go far and we have lots more snow forecast. Fingers crossed for a few days off work next week if this weather continues
Thanks for looking

  6. The acetate wrapper looks brilliant and I love that stamp. I also love that bp - I'll have to see if I can find it on Glenda's blog. You'd never guess there was anything recycled about this lovely card.
