'Second Time Around - recycled'

Good Morning I hope you are having a lovely weekend. The weather is very hot here and I'm developing a Summer cold grrrrr!!! Not good!!!

Our challenge last time was 'Beautiful Blooms' chosen by Jocelyn. The winner entry will be on the blog next Sunday after Jocelyn has done the difficult job of choosing her winner. Not easy as we had we some beautiful entries. Don't forget if you don't have a blog you can still enter via facebook or email. There is always a crafty prize on offer donated by the design team.

This time the theme has been chosen by Carol. We would like to see anything that you have recycled but don't forget you must also have used a CD and tell us which one you've used.

Here is my inspiration for you.

I was in the mood for making a CAS card this time.....makes a change from my signature fancy folds!
I began with A4 white card stock for the base card. I embossed a piece of A5 card for the matting layer. The tag was printed off a Debbie Moore CD 'Shabby Chic....Vintage Rose'.
                                I used a piece from a pretty tissue box to cut the die cut spray.
                                                            This was my recycled bit.
 I printed of the greeting  tag 'Lots of Love' from a Joanne Sheen CD 'Holly Hill Pond' This is my go to CD if I need a sentiment. There are a number of blank sentiment tags on this CD and you can change the font to any greeting you wish.....very useful. I found some matching string in my bits and pieces bag.....a bit of luck me thinks as it matches perfectly.

    I wonder if you are having the same problem commenting as me. I am having to type my comment, press preview and then go back in the browser and my profile appears and the comment publishes. Hope that helps!

  9. Thanks for info Linby. My prob is when clicking on entries in CD Sun nothing happens. So I can't view anyones blog. Nightmare!!

  11. Great minds etc Wynn. I used the top of a tissue box for the first recycle card I did. Tissue boxes are a great source. They are usually very pretty and we all have them. Lovely card.
