Can you guess what it was?

Hi all,

Well, we spent our day in air conditioned buildings again. This weather is meant to stay like this until Monday now so we will be quietly melting until then.

If you have read my blog before, you may know that I like to use recycled packaging in my cards if it fits, so I used the card from a pack of Daisy's glitter glue. I also decided to use an old belt I had kept from a pair of trousers I used for decorating in and then threw out. I don't wear belts so wouldn't use it as is, but loved the material, so I cut the part with the eyelets in and used that on my card. I thought this great image from Charmed Cards went well with it and will use it for one of my cousin's son's birthdays as they all love skateboarding.

I would like to enter this into the allsorts challenge - saving nature

Great card, love the use of the old belt! What a fab idea!
I hope you aren't anywhere near this storm that's battering parts of Aus at the moment but if you are I hope you are all keeping sake and well,

Great recycling Nikki .. .. .. I especially love what you have done with the belt.

Great image.

Sounds very hot with you at the moment .. .. whereas it has been quite windy and cold here. We could probably do with being halfway between the two of us!! LOL!!!
