is it cheating?

Hi there blogging friends , how are you ?
Are you ready for a great weekend? I hope so . Hope you have a weekend of memory making moments with family and friends. In the meantime , welcome to my room.
Recently Jane, gave me a couple of Christmas Tags to see if I could use them on cards .
They  are so elegant that I could not , for the life of me , add any thing else . On this one there is a little tag with sentiment . I just added it  onto White Gloss card with foam tape .

Sorry about picture . it is a glossy tag and no matter which angle I tried it reflected, so I tried scanning instead . But the images are handbags and shoes with Christmas sentiment
 in the centre." Have a Gorgeous Christmas".
I adhered this with foam tape as well.
Now by the time I want to use these I may decide to add some rhinestones.
That got me to rummaging through my stash of tags and  I found these .

These two are 10.5cm square white gloss cards  both  with sentiments from SU. I added little rhinestones from my stash onto tags that are added to card with guessed it foam tape .
What seems 100 years ago,   I began creating cards by using recycled cards and other pictures from magazines and wrapping paper. And I   use the like when holding  craft days with some of my friends who don't have the  where with all to collect stamps and / or cannot cut out images even if they could stamp.
We actually have fun sharing our crafty ingenuity. I have a blogging  friend who recycles too , HELLO  MONICA and her creations are beautiful.
Any way that's my addition to  50 Christmas cards by 1st December.
Annmaree has added to her entries too .
Enjoy your weekend every one .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now Shirley-Anne.
