Bah! Humbug! Challenge #1

Hi everyone,
I really wanted to join in with a couple of Christmas challenges this year, so that I might not have to make so many Christmas cards at the last minute. I think I've just about made this one at Bah! Humbug! by the skin of my teeth as challenge #2 starts on Friday.
The theme for their first challenge is 'Recycling' and I've used a lovely image from one of my Christmas cards together with some silver snowflakes and a snowflake border. Such a simple card to make, but I think it looks really pretty with it's silver and blue colour scheme (unfortunately it looks much like the view from my window today, brrrrrrr!!)

Card Details:
* Image - Recycled Christmas card
* Paper - Joanna Sheen
* Snowflakes and snowflake border - Daisy & Dandelion peel offs

Thank you all for your continued visits and for the lovely comments you've been leaving me

What a beautiful card Chrissie love the colours too. Hope the snow starts to thaw for you pretty soon. We've been very lucky here..there's just a lacey covering of the white stuff here.
Take care and stay safe and your Mum are in my thoughts.
Love Sheila xxxx

Hi, Chrissie. That is a really beautiful card! I think I'll have to check out the challenge blog. I need to stay on top of the Christmas cards all year long, too, so I haven't even put the papers, etc. away. I hope it warms up for you over there. Our arctic blast has finally moved on and the snow is melting quickly. Pretty while it lasted but warmer is better.

Love 'n' hugs,

Chrissie, Happy New Year. What a beautiful card and a lovely way to recycle cards. Unfortunately the heating in our front room seems to have buckled all the cards but they are weighted down in books to see if I can salvage them. Best wishes, Kym xx
