Pretty much recycled here

Hello sweet peeps,

Here is a Christmas card mostly made with recycled paper from a wedding card. Yes, I have a really nice friend who saves up old Indian wedding cards for me and I store them and store them and then finally think of using them. Here is one of those instances when I actually used up the paper! The stamp is from my stash as is the ribbon. I added the rhine stone to make it look glam and by the way, the embossed emblem beneath the snowflake was part of the card. I stuck a snowflake on the emblem as inside the emblem was the bride and bridegroom's initials. Are you impressed?




I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Wish you a great day,

I think I need what this card says, lol

Hello lovely bloggers,

It was Diwali last week with lots of celebration in school and soon is Thanksgiving followed by Christmas and Valentine's and Chinese New Year. So the party goes on. Lol. 

I am coming along surprisingly well with the order of 40-50 cards for charity (Women on a Mission, Singapore).

This card was made when we visited Sydney a few weeks ago. Yes, I carried stamps, card stock and a few distressed inks along with my Sakura gold gel pen. There is lots of gold on the flower which could not be captured on camera. In real life, it looks quite pretty. And yes, I have used clear stamps from Hero Arts. The sentiment was part of the set and I love it.

Wish you a happy weekend,

Another Siberian theme card for WOAMS

Hello kind peeps,

I am making cards at top speed and have made 20 already for WOAMS (Women On A Mission Singpaore). Another 20 or 30 to go as per what I can manage.

This card was made with handmade paper from India bought in San Franscisco some years ago. Truly global is this paper, quite like me, lol. I had to put dots with stickles on the reindeer to cover up a stain.
The striped paper you see has been recycled from a pastry box. The silver cord was donated by a dear friend in Jakarta.


I will enter this card in:

Happy crafting,

Monica
