This is the requirement this week (or should that be last week!)

We'd like you to do your bit for the planet and make a card using some recycled items.Yes, we know we've done similar challenges in the past, but some things are good to revisit and this is one of them - it gets us looking at stuff we might be throwing away and asking ourselves if there's some card-making mileage to be had from it.And besides, it's FREE! If you can use something rescued from Christmas rubbish (scraps from cards, decorations etc) - then you get double points! lol

My recycled bits are the flowers which were punched from the card I snaffled from the crackers and the thin red ribbon is (or was) the hanging cord from my new pjs (does anyone really hang their jamas in the wardrobe?!?)

This card also fits the new challenge on Rosie-Dee's challenge blog

If you're here then we're asking you to share with us your floral side. This week we'd like you to show us your flowers. It's easy to go and buy our flowers for cards or scrapbooking, but we'd like you to have a go at making one. It doesn't have to be diffcult or even time consuming. What will be your material of choice?

The larger gold flowers were made using two different sized heart punches, easy really LOL

Well I hope your jimjams are not lying on the floor now that you’ve recycled the ribbon for hanging them up!

Great card Jackie and I love the little punched flowers.
