On Your Mark...

 
Hope your day is off to a great start and maintains a nice steady pace, just like this sweet Meljen's Design image called Speedy Hare.  He is the focus of my card for this week's challenge "Recycle It - use a recycled item on your card." I used recycled twine ( I wanted a purple shoe lace but didn't want to cut mine up! Yep, my runners are purple, just like his, but with bright orange instead of lime green! Hey, I have to wear a uniform so I make a "statement" with my shoes!)
I had so much fun colouring him up. My DPs are MME {Make a Wish & Lime Twist}. As a School Janitor I am always finding interesting little things - garbage to most but not a card maker - thus the metal star & the perfect piece of green twine. Added a few big buttons, some faux stitching and a computer generated sentiment to finish this card up.
I really do hope you will join us at Meljen's Designs and play along, sharing your own creation using a "recycled item" and a Meljen's image. {Don't forget Melissa has a section of Freebies for yu to pick from}. And please remember to check out what the rest of the DT came up with right here.
hugs,
Nancy
