using up my bits

Hi there 

Well here I am sitting here on Wednesday thinking what shall I do today

I wish the rain would stop and allow me to get back into the garden, I feel I am 
just sitting waiting for the good weather to come. 

I have been working in my craft room using up my bits, and here is a card I 
made yesterday. 

Last year was a challenge which I entered where I was using tags in the challenge
What do you do with tags? Well cut off the top and use them as a topper. 

Here is my card.

 Here is the top :) 

Used up snippets of white and black card to mat and layer the topper 

Then found a strip of backing paper which I cut down and layered onto a white card blank.

What a difference a few cuts makes. 

I hope you like it and I hope the Village Hall Coffee Morning goes well tomorrow.
Got to bag up my cards which I have made this week now so hope to see you again

Boy its great to have the internet back. And like several of you who have commented 
it was horrid not having it for 3 weeks earlier this month. 

I would like to enter this card into the challenge over at

Have a great day

  1. Welcome back Pen. It's an absolutely beautiful card. Good luck at the village hall. Barbxx

  2. What a clever way to reuse a tag. One of the reasons I don't make tags is because they just end up in the recycle bin. You certainly put this beauty to good use and made something very useful that will also be enjoyed by someone else. LOVE IT!

  3. This is really pretty and I love your bunny below. Good to have you back x
