Recycling at SPS

Hiya folks!

How is your Easter weekend going? Spent my day gardening yesterday. Still trying to beat those blooming weeds and get me veggies in. Bit dull today, so I'm spending my time in the crafty corner, LOL

Needed to blog my DT creation for Sweet Pea Stampers, and this time round we are after your 'recycling' !! Normally I don't do much of that on my cards, but I made an effort this time as I failed to make a card for the last fortnight.

So I rummaged around and found an old belt that doesn't fit. It was a bit 'hip' anyway, as it was wooden beads, cord, etc. And I used up a paper bag that my crafty goodies came in when I went shopping the other day, oh, and a bit of ribbon that you get in new clothes on the shoulders. Why do they put that there??

The paper bag was scrunged up and then flattened for the backing. My patterned dp's are from Just So Scrappy2. The image is a gorgeous digi-download from Crafty Purple Frog (no colouring required!). I used a MS punch for the bottom loopy bit, tied the belt bits round the card, threaded the ribbon through the big button and tied it in a bow.

Hope you guys can join us at Sweet Pea Stampers this time!

I am entering these challenges with this card -

Hi Teri, this is just stunning (do you ever make anything that isn't? :P) I love that bp, and why am I the only person in the world who likes those ribbons inside the shoulders of clothes. How else do you keep things on the hanger? Thanks so much for joining with our Recycling challenge at Creative Card Crew :)
