A little Upcycling

Good Morning! Hope you are all ok. Looks like it's going to be another lovely day again. :o)

I decided whilst I'm off work I would make a start on cards for Christmas. I always have loads to make, for myself and orders and usually end up chasing my tail trying to get them all done. So I'm going to try and make at least 2 a week (hopefully).

I found a box of mini cards when we cleared out the loft recently and decided to save them for tags. They are so cute, so I had a go at a little Upcycling and made one into a card. Nice & quick, just what you need when you have lots to do. :o)

I also used : Cuttlebug Emb folder
Memory Box Lindeman Snowflake, Precious Snowflakes & Precious Mittens from My Crafty Heart
Paper from scrapbox
Spellbinders dies
Papermania sentiment
Gems from stash

Before I go and get the horrid HW done I must tell you about the amazing offer of the week Teresa has over at....

  24. What a great idea... I've got some cards in a cupboard somewhere that I kept for "one day", I'll probably be able to class the cards I do as "retro", they've been there that long... maybe even "vintage", lol! This is gorgeous, such a sweet image and the dies and embellies make it handmade, Donna xx
