The "MAIL" Man

Evening all!!

How are you? It's def taken a winter chill here - lovely to come back into a warm snuggly house having been out all day - Sincerely Yours at Leigh. Lovely to catch up with my crafty friends - spent too much lol!!

Anyway this week over at SPLODGEAWAY HQ  it is all about craft cycling - using up all those "bits" us crafters accumulate!

I had been busy making Christmas Cards last week and I decided i would only allow myself to use whatever bits were left over on the desk for my project.
I love the way that die cutting scraps have added extra interest to the layers.
I was also surprised how far the off cuts stretched!

I only had one ink pad on the desk and fortunately they all fitted together! Tag style cards are great to use up those smaller layers. I used Swirly lattice, Dotty the lot, Diamond Metal, Hexey and card king to emboss and ink through for the background tags

I used Darkroom Door's Mail Art stamp set on the dancing man from the Altered art kit. I used this mask as a stencil to cut out the topper.

I hope the DT's project this week have given you ideas for using up all those pesky scrap odds and ends :-)

Have a great weekend all

Crafty Cheers for now
