Recycle and re-use

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all okay out there,

A big thanks for the lovely comments you've all been leaving me lately,I know how time consuming it is so I really do appreciate it :)

I have a tag which I cut from some recycled Kraft card that was wrapped around a very special present for me which you can see here. Yes, I know I am very lucky!

On the tag I also recycled some material cut from a white shirt (the circles) that my OH no longer wanted.....I did check and he did say yes! I didn't attack the shirt with the scissors until AFTER I asked ;)

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Country view Challenges, Use Kraft Card

That Craft Place, No Cards

Simon Says Mon, Anything Goes

Simon Says Weds, Anything Goes

A Sprinkle of Imagination, Anything Goes, Use something thats sold in the shop ( I've used a Prima/Finnabair stamp)

Addicted to Stamps, Make your Mark

 Fresco paints, stamps are Prima/Finnabair and Carabelle, Copics and sewing....again.....phew!

Hope you like it
