Midway challenge #77..Recycling with DS4J

Happy Wednesday everyone.
What a busy time the last few weeks have been, and it just seems 'normal' I was reminded by hubby that in 10 weeks from now we will be far away on our holiday with our son and family in New Zealand...kind of scarey...well lots to do before that so I had better get myself into action mode.

Today I have a card for  challenge #77 at Digistamps4Joy. Elenor has challenged us to recycle something and to add a snowflake.

Here is what I used:

Paper ... Leane Creatief...Winter design

Acetate..from an embossing folder packaging (I save all of these) ..embossed with a snowflake design attached to dark blue cardstock with brads

Image...Snowman. Coloured with Distress inkpads and cut with an X-cut die. Glossy accent eyes and 2 brad buttons and icicle glitter for the frosty look

Snowflake...Joy/Noor design die

Finished off with twine round the image,..also recycled from a gift I received.

I will add a sentiment when I decide where the card is going.

I invite you to join in this challenge. Use something that you have kept, bits of twine, maybe something from  packaging, we all seem to save bits and pieces to use later...Here is your opportunity.

I am going to enter the following challenges:
Bearly Mine designs #107...ribbon/string/twine
Songbird challenge #26...Blue Hawaii..use lots of blue
Through the Craftroom Door...Anything goes
Use it Tuesday #65...Scraps, pieces,odds and ends (acetate pieces saved from packaging)
Craftitude challenges #50...Anything goes/beginning with letter S
Crafty Catz challenge #201...Anything goes
Sister Act Card challenge #27...Anything goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters...Anything goes
Stamp-n-Doodle challenge...Embossing, Wet or dry
Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge..Sept. challenge..Something blue

 I hope you all have a wonderful week, have fun doing what you like and take care.
Love Ursula

This is awesome Ursula ... love how you've placed the twine around the snowman ...
Sorry about the hassle over at The Sisterhood ... that was my fault, I had 'clicked where I shouldn't have' ... grrrr. It's fixed now and if you'd like to put this adorable card in the Inlinkz that would be great. Don't want to miss anyone when it's time to draw the winner.
Thanks so much for joining us at The Sisterhood’s ‘ANYTHING GOES’ challenge and please come back again soon!
