Another card challenge :o)

Hazel's Christmas card challenge 114  this week is ribbon & although I have a fair bit of Christmas ribbon, the first thing I thought of to use was a lovely tag that my friend, Terri, had sent me to use last Christmas :o)
Now, as our March challenge - that is, Liz, Terri's & mine - is to use recycled bits & bobs to make cards,  I decided to use a piece of recycled Christmas card that Liz gave me to put the tag on & therefore, both challenges would, I hoped,  be met with one card. A hand, a bush, a couple of birds - see what I'm getting at ?! :o) 
However, as much as I'm all for reduce, reuse & recycle, I have to admit that it always feels like cheating when I recycle cards & use things sent to me by other people. I wonder how many others feel like that :o)
Anyway, here is the card & as it's
 Anything Goes for Hazel's March challenge,  I'll pop this in there as well :o)


  1. I know what you mean about thinking you've cheated, but upcycling makes sense if it's something too good to bypass - this is a beautiful card - love the tag - thanks for sharing for both of my CHNC challenges - hope to see you again soon. x

  2. hehe .... that piece of cream embossed card was retrieved from the recycling bin in the vestry at church. It was part of some wedding orders of service that were left in the pews!!! Lovely card.
