Have you had a good weekend?
I do hope so!
I've had a super day today. Why? Because I had loads of play time in the old craft area.
I was determined to join in with Less is More as I missed it last week and it looked such a super challenge too. Perhaps I'll make a card for it just for fun.
Anyhoos onto today's card. The challenge is to use a recycled item. I also noticed that CASology has a code word of "Wood" and so my card started to take shape.
I have an Early Espresso card base and I stamped the nest from Take Care in Whisper White and also the sentiment from Just Sayin'. I tore some corrugated cardboard and added that along the back. I then stamped onto some brown packaging paper that we always get tons off when ordering from Stampin' Up! I stamped Hardwood in Lost Lagoon and punched out using the 2 1/2" Circle Punch. I punched the owl using of course the Owl Punch and Bermuda Bay Card Stock. I punched out his heart feathers from an egg carton. Lucky me it was just the right colour. Then he is attached with some Dimensionals.
It was fun to go raking through my recycling to find things to use and I'm pleased with the end result.
Hope you have had a productive day too. x
