Christmas 2018 - more recycling

This is a great sketch to use as I continue my recycling efforts - so many images are quite large.  Here I cut around the wings to make the image fit the A2 size.  I added some gold sticker strips and also recycled a metallic gold package envelope for tha mat as well as the die cut "Joy".

3 pieces recycled

For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving today...enjoy the day and I hope you have much to be thankful for.  Our list is long - including faith, family, friends amd freedom .  Later we will join several others at church - there will be a turkey dinner served for those who, like us, are far from family today.  I have my green bean casserole ready to go!
Once again I found pieces of old cards to recycle - the lovely picture and two glittery pieces for the background.  It does not show but the whole left panel is glittery, as are the snowflakes and the star.

Christmas 2018 with Beccy's image

I will have several more cards using this pre colored image from Beccy's Place. This time I needed a fairly quick card to include in my Shoebox... If you are not familiar with this program, Franklyn Graham sponsors a program through Samaritan's Purse - shoeboxes stuffed with necessities and some toys are sent to children all over the world.

Using new dies

I just got a set of Christmas dies from Peachy Cheap,  This image and sentiment were included, though I ordered the set for others that were included.  I am not sure about this - but I can see I need to use a solid background rather than this pattern paper.  That will be for another day!  The strips and mat are shiny gold.  For day 6 at Beccy's Christmas challenge, I used embossed edges on the oval die cut, and ecru colored cs.  Maybe I should add e for eyes - m y macular degeneration is bothering a lot today, and the print is jumping around a lot!

Our grandson recently had  a successful moose hunt - with a bow and arrow.  I dug this image out of my Wish RAK box - I thought he would enjoy it.  The camo bg is by Paper Studio, and the trees from Paper Pizzazz. The strip is a bit of decorated duct tape and I used Dazzles for the black strips.

Da'sy 5 of Beccys challenges is to use colors - custard, moss, bisque and cocoa.  I think the colors in the plaid (by Paper Studio) are at least close. I have used a pre colored image from Beccy's Place, and a sentiment from my computer files.

Christmas 2018, "D"

When I selected this paper (from a Recollections Watercolor pad)  I could see a glow at the top that reminded me of the angels on high - now that I have the card here, it is no longer very visible.  Oh, well,,,

There are several family birthdays coming up.  This is for our youngest granddaughter - she is on the Wings of Blue team at the Air Force Academy - yes, she parachutes out of perfectly good planes!  I used chalk and fussy cut the image - it is from my files but I forgot to list the source.  The planes are clip art, and I used an embossed cloud background - lightly sanded.

Altered card for Christmas

The image and slim blue panels are from the front of an old card; the embossed stars panel is the back of that same card.  Whether you call it altered, upcycled or recycled, I saved nearly all the card from the trash!  The other bg panel is burlap ribbon.  I hope I will be able to complete quire a few cards for Beccy's November challenge.  The text is computer generated.

The Crafter's Cafe - DT card for "masculine" challenge

I received some great papers from DeCosse;s Dynamite Doodles, and used them to showcase the sentiment - also from there.  I added twine, and a backdrop of the birthday embossing folder from Embossalicious.
Please join us over the next couple of weeks for the Masculine challenge at the Crafter's Cafe.  See the blog for details and lots of fun inspiration - as well as the prize list.
