Top Tip Tuesday #4 Recycling

An oldie but a goodie in this quickie post! 
Rather than go to the expense of buying low tack tape just use regular sticky tape 
which has already been used (recycling) or stick it to your clothes to pick up a few fibres
until it's a bit less sticky! 
Use to pick up peel offs, rub over with an embossing tool or similar to pick up and then apply to your project in the same manner. 
Great for positive & negative images(recycling waste)! 
I have used this for many different different things!

Make sure you stop by Top Tip Tuesday to see all the other great crafting tips! 
You may also have one of your own you'd like to share!

Anniversary Easel card!

Hi all, soooo sorry I've been neglecting you. 
I've been trying to get up to date on all my cards, housework etc and get ready for a trip to Majorca!
I had to make two anniversary cards for last weekend & was in such a rush,
 I forgot to take a pic of one before posting it off!
I did however get some pics of the one I made for my Sis & BIL! 
I have entered it in the September Comp over at 
Cardmaking Downloads where Sammy gives a newly designed freebie download just for entering
 & very generous prizes in the form of vouchers for 
you even get to chose which site you want the voucher for or you can split it between them!
You must use a download, papers, graphics from either one of the websites.
There are all sort of styles, designs, clip art etc between both sites.
There's also just about time if you want to play along!

Anyway, enough of my prattling on!!! Here are the piccies!

It's called Girl & Boy Kissing Pyramage& you can download it here

After inking the edges with a promarker,I layered it up using pinflair glue & added some ribbon.

I also matted and layered a computer generated sentiment in a similar fashion 
then added some ribbon & buttons!
 I love these little heart buttons!
I have used it before for valentines but thought it would be good for this too! 
My Sis certainly agreed when we hand delivered it on Saturday with the glue barely dry!!!
Oops forgot to mention I have also added it to the following challenges:
Incy Wincy Challenge too!  Anything goes!
Charisma Cardz Anything Goes
