Bird recycling

I've been wanting to play in the challenge 12 months of Christmas link up because you get really great paper just for participating!!!  But I'm still not making cards like I use too.... it takes me forever to make one... man... looking forward to being back!

Anyway so I'm sharing some recycling that I made with some Christmas cards that I got this year.  The images were really awesome and it's something that I have seen Hazel do and I thought it was quite clever.  So I had put some aside last year and they stayed in a drawer.... pretty useless... so this year I made a few and hoping to make more!

I used paper from Nordic Holiday by Basic Grey I'm almost finished that pack...  I used my Large squre, Label 11 Fleur de lis square.  I used some shimmer cardstock by DCWV.  I used a bunch of blings and that's it!  How easy right?!?  But I still think it turned out pretty good.  And it's a great way to reuse something and give it another life.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. 12 months of christmas link up - Christmas card and twist I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus - didn't  do the twist obviously
  2. Crafty hazelnuts christmas challenge - Feature a Creature
  3. Crafty hazelnuts christmas challenge - Anything goes Christmas
  4. Stamps fun-creativity - Frame
I will be back shortly with my next card... need to enter 2 in order to be eligible for that paper :)



  1. Great bit of recycling. I try and reuse as many of my cards as possible. some of them are a shame to throw in the bin otherwise. hugs Mrs A.

  2. What a great way to recycle Christmas cards. This is beautiful. The bling takes your eyes right to the image. Thanks for joining us at 12 Months of Christmas Link Up for this challenge.
