This is a new Challenge blog to ensure that the Bah Humbug syndrome is not experienced by harassed crafters by the time next Christmas arrives. If you are anything like me (the world's greatest procrastinator) it seems that December always turns up when thoughts of Christmas preparations haven't really taken hold! So with a blog like this one, next December will arrive and all your Christmas cards will be ready!
Here's the first one.
From my bag of cards ready for recycling I chose this little robin, he's so chubby I decided to make him look even rounder by mounting him with Nesties circles. The paper is from my newly tidied and colour coded scrap stash, which I embossed with Cuttlebug random dots. The snowflakes (get this) are from the scraps in the trapdoor of a Christmas corner punch!! How's that for recycling?
Another couple of blogs I've just discovered are Rainbow Lady's Challenge and Crafty Angels, whose challenges this week are also recycling! So this is for those blogs too.
I think I'll be sorting out a few more cards for redevelopment!
I couldn't resist doing a few more.
This little lot is made totally from scraps and offcuts plus 1 old Christmas Card.
The DIY Nesties were made with some deckle scissors and an existing Nestie, which I used for the embossing, together with an embossing stylus.
