BasicGrey Challenges - Recycling

Just how silly am I ? Here I am, sat here quite merrily making a card and I suddenly remember I need to do my post for BasicGrey Challenges !!! I think old age is setting in fast !!

Our challenge this fortnight is all about recycling, we would love to see something being recycled on your project. For inspiration, take a look at the DT's projects this week, they are amazing !

As always, there is a fantastic prize of a $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store for the lucky winner !

The DP's are a mixture of BasicGrey "Hopscotch" and "Basic Manilla"

The image is my My Favorite Things and is an a la mode "What's Cooking". She has been coloured with a mixture of Copics and ProMarkers.

The recycled items are the button which came from my late Grandma's button tin and the charm. I also used my new sewing machine on this card. I suppose seeing as the sewing machine was made in 1974 I could also say this was recycled !!

I followed the sketch over at the My Favorite Things "Wednesday Stamp Club" over at Splitcoasters.

We hope you can play along with us and look forward to seeing all your recycled creations !

Thank you for your visit. Hope you have a fantastic weekend. At least the sun is shining !
