'Tis the Season.......to Recycle!

We loved all the cards you shared with us for our "Thank You" cards challenge - what wonderful ideas and inspiration you give to us all. We hope you'll be just as creative and inspiring with this week's dare!

We'd like you to do your bit for the planet and make a card using some recycled items.
Yes, we know we've done similar challenges in the past, but some things are good to revisit and this is one of them - it gets us looking at stuff we might be throwing away and asking ourselves if there's some card-making mileage to be had from it.
And besides, it's FREE!
If you can use something rescued from Christmas rubbish (scraps from cards, decorations etc) - then you get double points! lol

Please come back and let us know where we can see your Recycling Creations, we can't wait to see them. Here are some cards from the Team - don't forget to check our personal blogs to find out more about what was recycled to make the cards.

I made this one for another recycling challenge in January, it;s something that I often do and keep a huge basket full of old card ads and other things that could be used for card making or embellising other things. SharriC
