I've been doing a bit of recycling this weekend...I made some 2009 calendars using the Create a Calendars from the Papermill Shop to give as Christmas presents in 2008...and after Christmas last year...my Mum and Nan gave theirs back to me, so that I could recycle them, and turn them into cards for them to use. These ones were for February....hence the Valentine theme. The first card uses 'Furry Embrace' by Penny Black, paper by BasicGrey ('Perhaps'), some Papermania silk flowers, and some organza ribbon.
The second card uses an image from the 'Every Which Way' transparent set by Penny Black, paper from the black & white 'Inspirations' paper stack by Papermania, flowers from Poppicrafts and Hobbycraft, and some Robin's Nest 'Dew Drops' in the corners.
Although I made these over a year ago...they never appeared on my blog at the time...I didn't want to spoil the surprise...and as I only turned them into cards this morning....they are 'brand new'. As there are so many 'Valentine' and 'Love' themed challenges around at the moment...I'm going to enter these cards for the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz: 'Love'
Crafty Calendar: 'Love or Friendship' (with the extra of 'Hearts')
Creative Card Crew: Valentine'
Lili of the Valley: 'Valentine'
Stamp Something: 'Love'
Stampin' for the Weekend: 'Valentine'
