Tuesday's Creative Table...

This is my wonderful creative work table today. I feel so blessed to be able to play with my supplies.
I am using a recycled card front, some cotton fabric, pink and white papers and a sheer ribbon. Glue and my sewing machine will hold them all together.
Here is the finished card and bookmark. This photo is a little intense with the color as the actual card is much more subtle.
Super simple and super quick.
Now to package them and get them mailed to someone who can use some pink cheering up.
What are you working on in your creative space?
I also made a birthday card I forgot to photograph and I already have it sealed for mailing.
Do you recycle greeting cards? What is your favorite way to reuse them?
Please share your ideas.
Happy creating to all...


  1. What beautiful colourful creations, sure to brighten anyone's day!

    I always keep Christmas cards and recycle them into gift tags for the following year. (Only the shop bought ones though!)

  5. This is just fantastic. I'm saving cards now for sure, heck I may even buy a few myself. lol I've been trying to come up with a creative solution to my bedroom wall. The table I'd planned between the 2 bookcases isn't doing it design wise. I need higher and heavier. hmmm

  9. Hi Sherry! That's sooo pretty, your friend will love it! There's nothing like getting a special handmade goodie in the mail to brighten one's day! ... I used to make gift tags out of my old cards...Have a fun, creative day, Sweetie! xo Paulette

  10. yes, i do recycle greeting cards at times...in fact, I just cut out a pretty pink flower the other day and set it aside for some future use....

    this is a great way to reuse pretty things!

  14. Hi...I do recycle my greeting cards..Christmas and otherwise.
    I save all my cards and with fingernail scissors I cute out tiny figures..that would fit in eggs. I use them in my eggery along with old garage sale jewelry etc. My daughters and Grand daughers get together a couple of time a year..and make egg ornaments. I have a file of cards suitable for cutting..
    Nice to do on a winters day or evening..
    Thank you for your nice comment.

  15. That is dynamite! I would have never said, "too intense" (even the photo version). I just love what you put together!


  16. What a pretty card! That will surely cheer someone up!! Found your blog through Rebecca Anthony! How do you do?!! My creative space is full of moustaches on sticks...a party favor for our upcoming wedding! Weeee!

  17. WoW! Stunning! I love the vibrant colors!
    Makes me want to dig my old cards out! Thanks for sharing!
