It's Time to Recycle!

Happy Monday to all of you!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  We have a new challenge for you over at the Pollycraft Challenge Blog.  Our lovely Emma chose our theme this week and she's asking everyone to recyle.

I used this adorable Mermaid from the Swings and Slides collection.  I colored this cutie with copics and prismacolor pencils and added some Glamour Dust to her body.  I really struggled with coming up with an item to recycle and finally settled on this -- the netting from a bag of onions I had purchased. 

If you really want to see some fabulous cards with recycled items, be sure to stop by the Pollycraft Monday Challenge Blog and check out what the rest of the DT made.  These ladies are sooo creative and came up with so many fantastic ideas.

I hope you play along in our challenge this week.  We are being sponsored by My Mum's Craft Shop.  Please stop by the shop and check out all the goodies they have available.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful week.
