Recycling, or is it up-cycling?

I found a jigsaw with some of it's pieces missing.  So I have up-cycled it into a card.

Look what I've been doing.

I've been Glassblowing and made myself a paperweight in my favourite colours.

August DeeDee's Digis freebie.

This time DeeDee has given us digi's with baskets.  There are baskets for all seasons, Christmas and empty baskets.  Find them here.

Here's the card I made.  I used my Faber-Castell pencils to colour it, as I haven't used them in a long time.

Diver Daniel

Another fantastic digi from DeeDee's Digis

Remember if you buy the digi set and upload a photo of your make to DeeDee's you get the next month digi FREE.

Diver Daniel will be sent to a friend who passed their diving exam recently.

I printed the digi three times, coloured with my Chameleon pens, and then fussy cut and layered the image.

Waste paper bin

I made this waste paper bin at my friends house.  It's her idea, not mine.  But it's my work.
The bin was made from an old tin, and magazine pages.
The pages are rolled around a knitting needle and then hot glued onto the tin.  The edging is made from plastic washing line pieces.

Man Cave

I always struggle with cards for men, but this Digi stamp from DeeDee's Digis has inspired me.

With the door of the shed open.

DeeDee's Digi of the month challenge.

It's been so long since my last post.  I have been making lace in the meantime and that just takes up so much of my time.
I have made this card for the DeeDee's Digi of the month challenge here.
If you buy the digi of the month from their site and upload a photo of the item you've made with it you get the next months digi for FREE.

I coloured the flowers with my Chameleon pens, using just two colours, and then decoupaged three layers. I mounted the result on burlap and added some Card Candi to the centre of the flowers.
