A bit of recycling......



Its still very difficult for me to craft at the moment but have managed to put together a very quick card this morning using a gorgeous recylced image from a card a friend sent me it was too nice to throw away...

I've used the Spellbinders 'Branching out' dies as the frame and a couple of Memory dies, Resting birds and Leafy Branch, sentiment is computer generated.

Hope you all well and I will try to get around to seeing your fabulous creations  when I can.......
