Recycling!



I was going through some old Christmas cards and some of them are too nice to throw out! I loved this teddy image so used a Nestie die to cut him off the old card! I then noticed the sketch on the current Sketch and Stash Challenge uses a circle so have made this card for that. My neglected stash used is the blue card base, I bought a pack of these coloured cards ages ago and don't use them! Also new is the silver frosted card I used for the snowflakes (cut with a QK die), and the message is from a new Penny Black set of stamps. The backing paper is DCWV.

Great recycling, Lesley, and a cute card. Never thought of using my nesties on old cards. I usually just cut them up to make tags for the next year's presents. I'll look at this year's in a new light now!
