PaperPlay Challenge - Recycle it!!

Happy Friday Eve!! WHOOT WHOOT!! Oh my gosh, yesterday was SUCH a happy mail day! I got so much new rubber and I can't wait for the weekend! I'm going to get all inky! So it's tme for a new challenge at PaperPlay Challenges, and this week we're asking for you to recycle something for your card! How cool is that??!!  And on top of that, we're being sponsored by the awesome Nikki at Bunny Zoe's Crafts! You won't find any better service than what Nikki will give you. I LOVE shopping with her as I know I'll get the best prices with amazing customer service.

I chose to use an adorable image from a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps set called Snips and Snails. Is he not the cutest thing???!!!   He's stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and then colored with Copic markers.  Y30's for his shirt and B90's for his shorts and shoes. I can't remember for sure what I used on his hair, but I believe it was E53, 23, 25, and 59. Those yummy papers are Authentique matted with Bazzill cardstock for the base. For my recycled part, I took some old book pages I got from my friend DeeDee, and cut out a small doily  and some buttons threaded with twine. There's machine stitching and some more twine wrapped around the top.


So that's it for me today! Please be sure to pop over to PaperPlay Challenges to see the rest of my teamies wonderful creations, then we'd love it if you'd play along with us. Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Hey Sharon! I was so honored to see that you visited me. I'm so glad you did. Just had to come by too and see you. Darling image, and your coloring is perfection! I love the buttons you created out of the book pages. I love the look you achieved and that is one I need to tuck into the old memory bank for later. Thanks again so much for coming to see me. I do hope you are well as well! Best, Curt
