This week's challenge put to the Design Team is to create a card with a brown, green and blue colour combo. My Mojo has still not pitched for 2009 so I got a head start by using this week's sketch over at Sketch Saturday and Stamp Something's 'no stamping' challenge. I had a huge struggle with numerous attempts just to decide on an image for the card. Whilst blog hopping, I discovered the gorgeous idea of recycling old bits of cardstock, on Kath's blog. Thanks Kath for sharing this idea on your gorgeous creation. Pop over to her blog right away and you just might get your Mojo inspired as well. I pulled out one of my square EK Success punches and started punching away at my old bits and pieces of cardstock, inked the edges of each square and put together a quick mosaic. Then I put the mosaic upside down on my light box and drew a heart shape with one of my templates on the back. Cut the heart shape out with a deckled edges scissors and viola my image for the creation has been sorted. And sommer did my bit for recycling and saving our precious planet. The sentiments are from my Creative Memories clear sticker stash and the brads are from Buttons Galore. The challenge this week over at One Stop Craft Challenge is 'Take a Punch' and I thought this creation will also be fit to be entered into this challenge. I used the following Basic Grey patterned cardstock:
- Aged&Confused Vagabond - Vintage Paisley
- Periphery - Bordeaux
- Archaic - Prime
I even finished off the inside of the card as well, couldn't help myself with this mosaicing.

Thanks to all of you for your sympathy regarding not having the use of our Telkom ADSL line, but I've got good news, the Telkom technician gave me a call Friday afternoon to let me know that he has replaced our port on their control station and that our ADSL line should be in good working order again. And yes, its working again. This is probably the 5th time in a year that Telkom had to replaced a port in their control station for our line which goes on the blink every time their is an electric storm. One should think that Telkom has sufficient safety measures to prevent this type of mishap. Just imagine how many ports Telkom has to replace each year for all their Gauteng subscribers getting affected by electric storms ... makes one wonder hey. At least Telkom offered this time round to credit us for the period we did not have usage of our ADSL line ... now I would say that this is only due to the looming competition on the horizon. Thank you once again for having a look here. - Recycled signing off
