Time for a Bit of Recycling :o)


The challenge this week at Sentimental Sundays is "Go Green or Recycle" This week we have a fab sponsor - Bugaboo so I hope you will join us. I chose to recycle & I made a CAS card! Very, very unusual for me & I'm not sure if I like it lol.  The baubles are made with Memory Box dies, the tartan card I used for the bauble was from a Christmas cracker & the ribbon was from a cardigan (the loops to hang it up). The paper is from the Dovecraft "Noel" pad (that I've had for ages), I inked the edges with a Galaxy Gold Brilliance ink pad & stamped a greeting.  I thought I'd better decorate the inside as the card was so plain lol so I stamped inside, added a blank bauble (to write in) & finished off the card with some gems.  At least that's another Christmas card done :D I've not done one for a while (even though I'm supposed to be super organised this year). 

This is the inside
The challenges:
Sparkle Creations - Christmas (option inspirational photo)
PaperPlay - Recycle

Hotshot Craft - Ribbon

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend :D We're off to Norwich this afternoon to meet our son for lunch & a bit of shopping so I'm looking forward to that.
