The Crafters Cafe Challenge

Happy Thursday

I hope all of you who are suffering the cold and snow are wrapped up being crafty at home.
This is I am afraid a long post as I got a little carried away with the theme - Recycling
We have some wonderful sponsor this time and I am working with 

My first 2 cards are using images from Cute as a Button

After colouring the image with my Copic's I used some drift wood picked up on our local beach and some sea shells from my travels. The starfish are from a local seaside shop.

Again I used my Copic's to colour the image and used Spellbinders Grand Squares to cut and layer it.

I used an old damaged book to create a deco-patch background, adding some wood letters coloured with Distress oxides and flowers from my stash.

My next 3 cards are using images/sentiments from Dr Digi

I used one of the sentiments from the sheet and coloured it with sepia shades. I also used MFT's Tea Party die set to cut out DP from Trimcrafts Floral Muse collection, the embellishments are also from this collection. The embossed background was made using a Crafters Companion 8x8 embossing folder called Rose Garden. My "Recycled" is a wooden ice-cream spoon painted silver.

The background is made using GKD stamp set Cool Beans and I used Spellbinders Rounded square to cut and layer the sentiment. I created the coffee cup using MFT's Coffee Cup Dies, and added a recycled coffee stirrer.

Last but by no means least is 

After colouring her in, I used my Scan N Cut to cut her out. and cut a mat with a pierced ovals die. I added some trim that was left over from the days of making dance costumes for my niece. 
The flowers are from my local Hobbycraft store.

Thanks for stopping by and keep safe and warm
