Nonni's Christmas Card Challenge #2

Its time for Nonni's 2nd Christmas card challenge and this time we want you to:


'Use Your Stash and Scraps'

Time to hunt through that box of scraps and stash, that gets bigger every day! I decided to stay really true to the challenge and get out a box of cards that I keep-ones that people have given me that have not been hand made! I keep cards that I think have bits on them that I might be able to re-cycle one day! It rarely happens but Nonni's challenge gave me the opportunity to do it. I would urge you to do this as I had so much fun.






Everything (even the gems) are taken from other cards. It is only the sentiment that is not and this was used as it is from Stamplorations who are sponsoring this challenge. 

I am hoping that this shows you that if you only have a few craft items you can still create!

Nonni's DT have come up with some great cards for this challenge, take a look here.  Then get out that box of stash and start cutting!!
You have until Santa visits on Christmas Eve to join in the fun. Have fun x

  2. Great recycling, Sandie! I love the pastel colors in this and the little scene that you've created. The stripes can be the aurea borealis' of this Christmas card! xx

  7. This card looks fabulous, Sandie! It's very different from your usual style, and I like your idea of pulling bits and pieces from cards to make your own hand made one!
