Tin soldier

Well after a good long blog hop last night - I saw some great work by you all and feel much more rejuvenated. The card for today was totally (and I mean totally) snaffled from this card here. I was looking for something simple, bright and cheery and my brain hasn't been working lately so I decided to case it.

My second item is made to house some little book marks to sell at the table tops sale. It is made from an empty! and washed pineapple tin. My husband is going back to his childhood deserts and made the classic pineapple upside down cake and as I was washing out the tin for recycling I thought I could use this as it didn't have any sharp edges and I had been looking for a 'pot'.

Have a great day & thank you so much for all your kind words from yesterday. See you tomorrow xx

Hi Emma,
Love your card, the pineapple tin is great too. We crafters should get government grants for all the recycling we do!
Have a lovely day.

Ooo one more thing - I was wondering if you had any of the Twill tape left that I could buy off you? I was hoping for say 2m of each size? Thanks x

Gorgeous work, love the colours on your card. I look at everything now that's going out or in the recycling and think hmmm how can I use that - we crafters are the greenest of green I reckon!

Have a good day

Oooh Pineapple upside down cake - yummy! What a blast from the past! I hope you served it with Birds Custard? My mum use to put glace cherries in the middle of each pineapple ring too - so fun!
Loving your creative mind as always sweetie - fab recycling and a shameless CASE is sometimes all we need to get going again - I do it all the time!
