Had lovely day .....

Well as you can see by not many posts today, I have been busy,
I went out with my mum and dad, and got myself some more white card to stamp on,
and bought a 12 x 12 scrap album ready to do for them for a christmas gift.
They then went and got their holiday pictures, so I borrowed the disc and
now have nearly 300 photos to choose from to put in their album.

After I got back, I started on this recycling project,
and tied it in with a few challenges as usual. (see list at bottom of post)

This vase started its life as a fruit juice carton,
I cut of the top, then covered it in funkyfairy paper,
punched the scalloped edges on the green paper.

I stamped one of my favourite images, and water coloured her.
then cut the edges with my scallop scissors, and distressed them with pale green.
Becouse these are water proofed this would make a lovely flower container as a
little extra to give when giving a bunch of flowers.

The challenges are -
Whimsy Monthly - Distressing
Die Cuts R Us - Anything (including punches or die cuts)
Stampavie and more = Think Pink
Funky Fairy - Recycle
Cute Card Thurs - Pink & Green

Thanks for looking,
Hugs
Angie
