Get them (recycled) Jeans on!

This is a very recycled card - the girl is stamped on to the back of a Christmas card, the teal blue paper was originally an envelope and the silver trimmed ribbon was the handle from a Christmas gift bag, I even reused the scrolls punched out from the border!

Feeling very good about using up old stash and stuff and resisting the temptation to go out and buy some Nellie Stellen dies and and Lily of the Valley stamps that I really, really want but don't really, really need!

I'm entering this into the Something for the Boys challenge at The Crafty Pad and the Allsorts Recycling Challenge


  1. Brilliant card and I do so admire your resolve :) After sorting and organising my stamps yet again I realise that I have got enough stamps in my artillary to do me for the rest of the year so why, oh why do I want the stamp set I saw on TV yesterday? Elizabeth x
