Good Morning Friends it's time for another challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown
and our sponsor this week is Meljen's Designs .

Our fun theme is recycled materials~~ we all have something we
can recycle right?
Most of my project is recycled items. Starting with the base which is paneling, the
washers from my husbands garage, the cardboard from a box, used sisal
string and the buckle and red hankie my husband donated to my cause.
He's a pretty helpful guy.
My nephew just had his first son and this is for him.
The sweet image is Lil Rodeo Boy which I water colored, cut
out with a Spellbinder Label #1 then stitched onto the blue. I
made little banners to attach the letters to and hung on the white ribbon.
I burned a couple spots on the cardboard. After cutting a strip of
hankie I stitched the MS checkerboard punched border onto it.
I like the buckle attached to the old piece of leather so left it on it.
The washers cover the drilled holes. Cut another strip off the hankie
for the bow at the top of the sisal hanger. The team has some
great inspiration and actually they have some funny stories
about the recycled items so be sure to stop by and visit them and
then show us your recycled projects!!
