Hi all - I'm back!

Ugh the trouble I've had getting any time to make anything these last couple of days....I blame the internet you know (and housework)...all I do is keep yapping and I'm not one of these women that can multitask. It takes all my concentration to make my fingers go on the right keys so there's no chance of me crafting at the same time!!! Anyway I finally ignored my buddies (who hopefully won't mind) long enough to get this quicky card knocked out.
It's made use of yet another old Christmas card so recycling is covered and it's made from basically mirri board and I've used my Metal Magic (at last - I've had it about a year!! so I'm counting this as my new item and I can see me using it loads more now) for the PEACE and Love debossed words so there is the Precious metals. I've based it on a sketch and as it's a Christmas card it's Wintry.
Okay for the challenges this card covers, only 4 this time hehehe

Going to play a while while I'm watching Ice Road Truckers now as I need to catch up on DT stuff - how dare housework get in the way. I'll be back tomorrow with hopefully some DT makes. Until then take care.

  4. House work is a real pain! Well done on using the metal magic - hmmmmmmm I seem to think I've had some for a year too - why do we buy these things and then not use them for ages. Ah well at least we get there in the end.
    Love your card and I think you've inspired on using the metal magic - wow it's good isn't it.
    Thanks for joining us at Bah! Humbug! - hope we'll see you again soon.

  7. Oh this is STUNNING, I love it. I've never heard of Metal Magic, and I don't know what de-bossing is, so I'll have to look up both of tem. Good luck in the challenges :)

  8. What a gorgeous card!
    Love the metal magic sentiments and they are perfect with the 'metal' look of your card. Well done too on recycling (isn't it lucky that not everyone send us handmade cards?)
    Thanks for joining in with Sketch & Stash.

  9. What a super card - very Christmassy and shiny.

  10. Sam this is stunning and HOW DARE you ignore us!!!! No just kidding. Got to keep our DH happy too or no more playing!

  11. What a lovely card, Sam. I think this is the first one to feature copper as the metal, and it's beautiful. Great re-use of old cards, too - I bet yours is much nicer than the original!!

    Thanks for joining us on Paperplay this week.
