Bah! Humbug!

This week's challenge at Bah! Humbug! is 'Things that fly'. Easy peasy - think angels, santa in his sleigh, birds - all easy if you have the kit or can find a digital download that does exactly what you can see in your head. Alas, that was not the case for me this week, so I am a bit embarrased by my offering...
Yes, you are right, it is indeed a recycled image from one of last year's Christmas cards.

It does meet the criteria I suppose - its got robins on, and they can fly - but it isn't exactly original.

Its just 10cm square, I've die cut the image and red mat using my nesties, added some red ribbon and layered it onto a card embossed with my swiss dots cuttlebug folder.

At least I was able to avoid buying something new, so that's one positive.

See you next week,

  1. Hi Gina - it's a beautiful image of robins and why shouldn't we recycle images in this way. I found that last year I had way too many big showy cards and was desperate for some smaller ones to send to not so close friends and relatives. This one will be a great addition to your box come Christmas time.
    It may be simple but it is lovely too.

    I'm all for recycling shop bought xmas cards Gina and, in fact, have a huge boxful donated by family and friends just waiting for this useless arm to recover the strength needed for attacking them with scissors. You have created a beautiful new card with these super robins. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
