Recycle and Reuse 2011

Today is a fresh start at a New Year. Which means a new year of Christmas Spirit Challenges from Flourishes. The challenge this month is to Recycle or Reuse something you recieved at Christmas. Ribbon or twine from a package, how about a fancy box from a gift, or how about that lovely wrapping paper? Check out Flourishes thread in the SCS Forum for all the details HERE.

I got this red stripped ribbon on a few packages all in one big package, so I saved every morsel they used. Makes for an easy peasy card. This sentiment and candy cane are from Sweets of the Seasons . I added a few pearls and a button for accents. Very simple and my goal is to make atleast 3-5 of each card I make for the Christmas Spirit challenge so I won't be short this year. I was a few short this year and well... if you didn't get a card from me you know why. :0) I won't this year! Hope you can play along! Have a wonderful weekend.

Am hoping I can get myself more organized in this new year so I can join the Flourish challenges more often and USE some of my stamps that are still virgins

Your card is simply fabulous.

Happy New Year
