The Pixie Cottage #43 Sketch/ Recycle Dt card

Good morning Dears,  Oh my it was a wild night last night in Scotland, the wind was gale force and the rain lashed down.  I think Autumn has given us a miss and winter has arrived a little early.

The only good thing is I won't be venturing out so that means more time for crafting.  It's time for another wonderful challenge over at The Pixie Cottage and this week there is a gorgeous sketch from Pam with the optional extra theme of Recycling.  As you know you can follow the sketch and theme or just the sketch or recycle something, the choice is entirely yours.  The prize of course is two beautiful stamps of your choice from The Pixie Cottage's amazing selection which you can find Here.

I've used Hannah's Letter stamp set by Sandra Hammer which is utterly adorable, she has been coloured with Pro Markers and Staedler Water Colour Pencils.  I've also used Flower Soft White on her hat trim and bobble with glamour dust for the snow effect. It's quite hard to see the glamour dust I've used as snowflakes falling all around her but I promise they are there.

My recycle material is the pearl and coloured beads on the pin which I made from a broken bracelet. The Christmas ribbon is also recycled, it came from a gift I received last Christmas, I throw nothing away, right down to keeping the wrapping paper, ribbons and bows that decorate gifts.  Well I am a canny Scots woman.  The full recipe for my card is below this post.

Thank you so much for visiting, I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll see you all a little later.
