House Mouse Challenge - Crafting on a Budget

This was a brilliant challenge for the HM challange blog this week.
It certainly makes you think about what you are using to make your cards, so I had a good old rummage around and here is my budget list:
Card Blank - PIF from my blogging buddy Fiona - Thank You!
All Papers and Xmas Sticker- Wee prize which I won from the draw for making cards for her friend from my fellow Scot blogger Kath - Thank You!
Image - from your very own Carolyn - Thank You!!
Ribbon Bow - Recycled from another card
DST/Sticky pads - approx 7p
Small scrap of Bazzill - roughly 2p
Staples - 2p
Buttons - cut from old T-Shirt
It is so hard to estimate the cost of the DST/Pads which we just take for granted.

Total Cost = 11p
Wow! I think I did okay .....

Dawn, what a gorgeous card you've made, and what a great idea for a challenge! We don't need to buy all the stuff that we do, you know, the producers are very clever when they create all our needs!

I love this card, so many lovely details, and the colours are so fabulous :)

Hugs, Hanne :)
