Recycled Love



I don't know about you, but this card maker loves to get cards! My husband is quite aware of this and takes his card giving seriously. He likes the cards that reproductions of paintings usually and tends to buy my cards at the same gifty type store. What happens though is he often ends up giving me the same cards over again for different occasions. I save all of them so I have quite a few of the same ones. 
Less is More is having a "recycled" challenge. I have been planning on doing this for awhile but with the challenge it was the perfect opportunity to recycle the beautiful cards from George. The new "shape" builder dies such as this set from Avery Elle make these quick cards to create.


Here are few other cards I have created from George's cards to me.




As  a crafter I rarely throw anything out. Remember it can all be recycled somehow!

Thanks for stopping by!

I too have a box of cards that have been sent to me by other people. I love being able to cut different bits off of them to recycle into new cards. I also run a Guide unit and they love rummaging through my box especially at Christmas time! Great cards. Stef

What a superb selection of cards.
Think the LIM one has to be my favorite though. Simply stunning layout.
