Festive 48 - Week 7

Do you keep your bits in a bag? I'm not being cheeky! Just asking about your extra die-cuts, offcuts of pretty paper and images you stamped but didn't use.... This card was made entirely from my bits bag.

The Santa was a colour print from a MCS cd and I've added glitter to his fur trim.  There were two labels ( I added red edges) and a 'noel' die-cut that I've coloured red. I dry embossed the white label and the red panel. So that's five bits gone from the bits bag. Only another 100 to go!!

Just to recap, I have challenged myself to make a Christmas card every week , and post it here (to make sure I do it!) . If I do this, by the beginning of December I will have 48 Christmas cards. I have also issued an invitation to anyone who would like to join me.

Thank you to everyone who's joined me so far. I love seeing your cards.

LOL, yes I don't keep mine in a bag but I do keep them in a plastic tray, and I love to go back and use them too. They always look different after they have sat a while. Great card you have made and I will catch up with your challenge later in the week. ~Diane

Oh, I don't have A bag, try BagS and a drawer! Love having scraps and ready made pieces, my cards often come together during the making process, I like to try out different things before I stick elements to the card base. And that's probably why I'm a slow crafter, but I really enjoy the process:) cute Santa image!
