Joanna Sheen DT Card - Recycle Something

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all ok and busy crafting!

Well, today's the start of a new challenge over at The Joanna Sheen Challenge and this time around the theme is 'Recycle Something,' so we want to see projects where you have either recycled something or added something which has been recycled. There's a £15 voucher to spend on the Joanna Sheen site up for grabs, so well worth having a go and joining in.

I was really lucky this month as I was sent the gorgeous House Mouse 'Mice & Crafty - Sew Happy' stamp set to use and it's beautiful.

I have used Kraft Card (recycled), buttons from an old cardi, and the red card was the lining of a box.  Can't even remember what was originally in it now.

I've used the following Promarkers to colour this one:

Cardinal Red, Lipstick Red, Blush, Sandstone, Caramel, Ice Gre 1 & 3, Putty, Satin, Ivory, Capri Blue (LE).  

I've just matted and layered the red and kraft card with some paper from a Me to You paper pad, and set the image and paper rectangle at jaunty angles (lol).  

The sentiment was from a magazine on a printed out sheet.

The flowers were were cut using the large and medium Cheery Lynn Rose Dies and fixed together with gold brads from my stash.

I love this cute.  And my Jamie adores it too as his favourite little House Mouse - Monica - is on it, getting up to mischief as usual.

Hope you pop over to The Joanna Sheen Challenge and join us in the challenge.  The DT always have fabulous inspiration for you and we love seeing all your projects.

Take care everyone & happy crafting!
