Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have been busy trying to find ways to use the foam sheets my son gave me. He works in a paper factory and brought me a LOT for foam sheets {these sheets are thinner than fun foam}. I have cut some down to 12"x12" to use on my Gazelle. The scraps from cutting them down, I have used to make my own foam alphas! I am loving this because I can customize my alpha sets to my needs! For instants, my DD's name is Amanda, so I am always running out of the letter "A". When making my own sets I know I need to make a lot of the letter "A". I'm sure you get the gist of this...LOL!

I also found a pattern online {can't remember where} for crocheted flowers, so have been making them also. I had a minor surgery on my toe, so have been laid up for the last week or so and needed something creative to do while lying on the couch!

I did get a card done that I will try and post tomorrow. I think I have another Christmas card to post, will look and see.

This is the Christmas card I made for my DS and his new wife. I seen this image and thought of them! This image is from Digital Ink Co. Isn't it just adorable??!! I colored it with copics, I used homemade flower soft {Holly Young made a video on her blog about this! Very cool!}, and sprinkled embossing powder over it to look like it was snowing! I think the PP is DCWV and the ribbon is from my stash. I use Gina K's Luxury CS to stamp and color on. Of the different papers I have tried, I like this one the best when coloring!

Also, check out some of the blog candy listed in my sidebar. I am pretty sure some of them end in the next day or two.

Okay, will try to post my homemade fonts and flowers and my card tomorrow!

Have a great night!
