Recycling time over at Take the Pixie challenge!

(Please scroll down for my Quixotic Inspirations DT post!)


It's Thursday which means today I am Pixie Mary J!  I love being on this team so I can call myself that - yes, sad I know!  Anyhoo, it also means a new challenge at the Take the Pixie Challenge and this week we are challenging you to...
Recycle!

So do some searching and find something you have laying around in your home to recycle!!  I found some fabric swatches (rather a lot actually!) that I got years ago when we were buying a new sofa (and no I didn't choose it!) - I used on my make for the matting...



Isn't this lady beautiful?!  She is called the Meadow Princess and I just love those delicate flowers in her hair and her leafy dress!  And I bet she has pointy ears under those gorgeous flowing locks!!  (I just know I was an elf in another life!!)

I hope you can join in with us this week - the other DT creations are wonderful and you can see them all here!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:







Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, My Minds Eye Life of the Party paper pad
Stamps: Pixie Dust Studios Meadow Princess (scroll down to the bottom of the page to find her!)
Mediums: Copics, Colorbox white chalk ink
Accents: ribbon from stash, beads (from Quixotic Paperie here)
Tools: My Favorite Things rolled flower, leaf and scallop border dies, Nestabilities label die and Fiskars scallop border punch (inside card)

Can't get the thought of a toadstool hanging off your backside (Lisa's comment) out of my head now!!

Once again I just love your cards today and yesterdays (as I was away and didn't get to visit), please can you make something awful so I can leave a different comment, I'm running out of nice things to say!
