Morning Everyone,

I hope you've had a good weekend.  The temperature has certainly gone down here with Saturday being the coldest day we've had for a long time.

I've made a quick card here by upcycling a card received last year.  I don't save many, but the ones I think I could do something with go into a drawer.

I cut the gold glittered tree and sentiment out with a stitched rectangle die and glued it onto gold mirri card.  Another stitched rectangle was cut and I added four small strips of mirri card to this, glued it onto a hammered white card base and added four gold gems to match.  This was a super quick make, I think the part that took the longest was deciding on the layout!

I would like to enter these challenges:

October Rudolph Days - Anything Christmas
ABC Christmas - V for very quick
Allsorts - Pearls and/or Gems
Crafter's Castle - Winter/Christmas
Pixie's Snippets Playground - All pieces except the card base were snippets

Thank you for taking the time to visit and I hope you will be able to leave a comment, they are much appreciated.  Have a good week all.

  8. Wonderful upcycling Lynne - a really elegant card. i totally agree that with upcycling like this it often takes longer to fathom out what we want to do than it does to actually make the card!
