Preserve the Forest swap

*All pictures can be enlarged by cliking on each*

*Be forwarned...lots of pictures on this blog-post!!*

Who knows me, knows also how much I love to : *REUSE,REDUCE,RECYCLE*
Usully trying to find some kind of elements for card making purpose even amongst good and clean discarded items. It is so true that someone else trash can be a font of treasure for others...especially if you let your mind visualize the many creative possibilities...

These two cards made mostly with recycled items, were made for Jeanette's latest swap (SCS: Forest Ranger) Her swaps are always interesting and almost always forest related ...
                                     *can U see a relation w/ her  nickname here?* :o)

Here are the details according to Jeanette's swap post:
For this round - PRESERVE THE FOREST - swappers can choose any theme/image they choose.
(It does not have to be forest-y, but it can be if you want it to be.) Swappers are asked to create theme appropriate full-sized cards, anything with FOREST FRIENDS in mind...

The special aspect of this swap is that the cards must include some re-purposed or recycled item on them.

Here's the making of  my first card - Can you tell what I recycled here??
*hint : 3 items were recycled*

My second card is totally opposite, not shiny nor too classy, but rather rustic and warm ...can YOU guessed what I recycled here?
*hint: 4 items were recycled *

In total I recycled quite a few items (seven to be exact)
between the two cards above
Take a closer look...what are those items?
Go on, try and guess...*smile*

Thanks for visiting my friends!!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please check the announcement on the wonderful logo ,top right of my page! I feel so blessed to be asked again and be part of an amazing Blog Hop to remind US all that Jesus is the Reason...Easter is coming!!
I hope to see YOU all at the hop, starting Thursday!!
You may even win a prize just by hopping along...:o)
Peace and Blessings my Friends!
