Recycling fun

There is such a drive worldwide to get people thinking RECYCLE! I prefer to call it REPURPOSING. That's exactly what it is......using throw-away things for something other than what they were made for. I find it such a challenge and it is such fun.  Yesterday in one of the magazines I opened there was an insert advertisment for CONSOL GLASS. The beautiful shades of thexblue glass instantly caught my eye, as did the layout and design of the page. I knew that I wanted to make a card using all the elements on the page and this is the result. The blues seemed to say 'rest' and 'relaxation' so I added the appropriate wording. Inside the card I stamped the word 'RELAX'.
The only elements not from the advertisment were the cardstock base, the buttons and the stamped sentiments.
See what you can do from throwaways?

Another Inspirational card

This is one of my favourite scriptures. It is so encouraging to know that our lives are being steered by a greater power, and that we have great things in store for us, no matter how grim things might look in the moment.

Another baby card.

I was comissioned to make two baby cards, one for a boy and one for a girl. So, being in a very conventional mood, out came the blue and pink. I posted the boy's card  yesterday on my fb page. Here is my little girl's card, all pink and lacy and just sweet enough to eat!

It has been on my heart for a while now to make cards that are inspirational and 'from the Word'. I have at last started working on just such a range, which will be known as the FROM THE WORD Collection. This is the first card.
