Upcycle/ Recycle

Hi there...

I had lots of lovely cards sent to me for my birthday earlier this month, the majority of which were shop bought and didn't want to just dispose of them but you can only keep so much right? So yesterday I spent some time cutting bits and bobs that I could reuse. I never know if it's called recycling or up-cycling but whatever... I made 5 cards together with a few new craft goodies I got recently.

The main panel on this card started life as a gift card holder (from M&S). It was just too pretty not to make use of

One of my recent purchases was the 'Special' die and sentiment set by Gemini - there are 14 sentiments in the set and a bargain at just over £5. I also picked up a new IndigoBlu stencil (basket weave) which I wanted to try and I love it!
It made a great panel for the recycled bits to which I added a button, twine and shadowed the word die by cutting it twice, once in black and again in white

 And then there was this little mouse that captured my heart...

I couldn't let him go could I?

I'll share the others later in the week

Have a lovely day and thanks so much for popping in
