Recycle, Reuse and eat more cereal


Morning Peeps!

I know, you don't normally see me on a Sunday morning. But I have several cards to share between yesterday and tomorrow and I wanted to try and space them out a little.

This one is for the new, Recycle Challenge over at Squiggle Stamps. I wish I could be a little more creative when it comes to recycling stuff, but that trail of thought doesn't come naturally to a shopaholic. Gravy containers, ribbons, and empty cardboard food packaging are about my limit. The kraft looking card on this, erm, card, is the inside of a cereal packet.


I wanted to create a fairly neutral background for Monster Boy. He has to be my absolute favourite Squiggle Image and I use him often. (Oooooooh, that's recycling!)

The current Challenge at Make it Colourful is to re-colour an image you have used before. I didn't know I was going to enter MIC when I coloured Monster Boy the other day, so I didn't check back to July when I last played with him. But look, he's virtually identical colour wise! It was a useful exercise though, it's nice to see the changes in my colouring. Thank you MIC!

Hi Faye, FAB card! Love this little monster boy. I'm rubbish at using recycled things on my cards ... the only thing I recyle is the ribbon hangers in new tops! Great idea to use the kraft card from cereal boxes ... if you don't mind I might have to borrow this idea!

Love your colouring, Faye! I'm bad enough at not using the new stuff I've bought, never mind recycling stuff I've already used. Just wait till SC starts nursery ... you'll be saving up kitchen roll tubes, egg boxes, you name it! xx
