Prettie Recycled Wednesday

Happy Prettie Wednesday my friends! This week we are bringing you Danielle's challenge - to use a random item in your house or yard and create a background.

I immediately thought of using cardboard, we have plenty of empty cardboard boxes around here! *wink, wink* And what does cardboard remind you of (besides new stamping goodies people!)? Yes, moving! I took out Home Sweet Home by Fat Cat Stamps for Paper Pretties. I simply cut my piece of cardboard to size and then peeled apart the layers. The beautiful Cosmo Cricket paper gave me my color palette - and how cute is that moving truck?!

Thanks for visiting today - I so appreciate each and every reader!! Please visit the other Prettie Girls to see what ingenious backgrounds they came up with!

Charmaine, Christi, Danielle, Frances, Jackie, Jackie P, Jana, Jessie, Jessica, Jodi

Oh and a HUGE congrats to my sweet friend Charmaine and her family on the birth of their new baby Isabelle! I can't wait to meet her!! :)

Cardstock: White, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou (SU!), Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Stamps: Home Sweet Home (Paper Pretties), Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Accessories: cardboard, Copic markers, sewing machine, ribbon (SU!)
