Greeting Everyone!

For today I am posting on behalf of the Brown Sugar Challenge Blog. It is time for a new challenge and this weeks challenge is quite different from the norm. Their theme this week is to use something recycled! It was a difficult task for me to upcycle; I had to quite literally pick through my craft trash can (good thing it is mostly paper!) and grab some things. Yes folks, I was craft trash picking!! Here is my card for today! Enjoy!!

I decided to enhance his eyes to look like this little guy has
bottle caps for glasses.
(Kind of like me when I was a child)
I die cut 'teacher' twice one in blue the
other the same green as the grass to make it stand out.
A close-up of my recycled items.
Which are ribbon, paper, and patterned paper.
I decided to add some dimension to the book
the worm is reading by adding extra pages.
Brown Sugar Challenge would also like to introduce our sponsor Robyn's Fetish. I really enjoyed their store, I found it to be very organized, excellent description of the item, and easy to checkout. Plus, their images are just too delightful.. If you haven't already been there check it out.

Robyn's Fetish is giving away
3 digi stamps of your choice to one lucky winner!
This is the image I decided to use for inspiration! With school right around the corner I just couldn't resist using this bookworm to make a card for my son's teacher.

book worm
So you might already know but my recycled item would be the ribbon and the paper for the book and the paper for the die cuts. These all came from my craft trash! I am thinking it may be time to empty my trash..

So come on over and check out Brown Sugar Challenge Blog and see what the other DT members have created.. This is a very unique and inspiring challenge.. I promise you will never look at your trash the same way again!

I am also entering this card to

This is one of those enchanted cards. So suddenly I was an old library, where the librarian worm is also a wizard. He knows what I need most, took one of his a look ... and he has for me right book and the appropriate an incantation that would change my life for the better!
Shawna, thank you for this card! It is simply amazing!
