At The Pink Elephant Challenge Blog this week the challenge #11 is - For Mom
(Happy Mother's Day or Happy Birthday Mom)and/or
Don't Throw That Away (Recycle, Reuse) So as I haven't got a mother now -Bless her - I chose the latter.
The only new or purchased items were the flower(newest purchase) and the pink card (had for about 6 years, a huge box).
The recycled items were:-
White and brown card from my bits box some of which are the backs of received bought cards.
The great spotty paper was free with a magazine my sister passed on to me.
The button is out of my dear old mum's button tin I inherited :-)
The thread through the button is a piece of cotton that had unravelled off my cotton throw with the fringe
and last but not least the sentiment is cut from a received bought card.
I really enjoyed doing this and I am a hoarder of 'useful' bits and bobs as us crafters are, I daresay.
The sketch Idea came from Clean & Simple 10 min. Monday
