It's time for FEATURE FRIDAY challenge at THE CHARACTER CAFE!  Make sure you head on over to CHARACTER CAFE BLOG so you can check out all the DT projects and also so you can enter this week's challenge!  If you need some images, you can find the CAFE STORE right HERE.

Our challenge this week is reuse/recycle - find an object in your home and use it in your card.  It can be a pop top, a paper clip, belt buckle, you name it!!  Be creative and most importanly, have fun!!

For my project, I found an old refrigerator magnet from my kids' preschool with the 2007-08 school year calendar on it.  I also had set aside this envelope from a Discover card promotion.

I took the envelope and put it through the Xyron to get the entire back of it to be an adhesive.  Then I stuck it onto the magnet and trim to fit.  Next, I punched out all the frogs and reeds from THE CHARACTER CAFE pond frogs image set using SU and EK Success punches.   I printed them in different sizes so they all looked different.  I colored them with Copics and Gelly Roll Stardust pens and used Doodlebug flock on the tops of the reeds.  Sentiment is computer generated, cut with SU punch and daubed with SU gable green ink.  All white CS is GP 110.  I colored some of the edges of the punch outs with Copics for a bit extra color.  Then, I stuck it on my magnetic board outside my room:)

I hope you like it, please let me know:)
This project also fits with the following challenges:
Delightful Sketches - use punches
Crazy4Challenges - Inspiration based on "Frogs and snails and puppy dog tails..."
