Birthdays Are Sew Special ...

Today we are starting another challenge over on the 
Joanna Sheen Blog and this time round we want you to 
'Recycle' item or items.

I have recycled both the backing papers which are in fact wallpaper samples which
I collected in my early crafting days some ** years ago, I knew they would
come in handy  haha :)
Kraft card which is recycled from a folder.
The pink ribbon is from the Anita's card blank packs which have
the ribbon tied around the blanks & envelopes. The buttons are recycled from old clothing and I have collected over the years and finally some name tape left over from the school uniforms.

I was sent the gorgeous House Mouse Happy Hoppers stamp set
titled 'Special Day' which includes this stamp, another large cutie and
two sentiments and some little stamps.
Every layer has been hand stitched which wasn't easy with the wallpaper
as it was so thin, I have used a charm, doily and pearls from my good blogging friend
Paula (ALBC)

Do come and play along with us, I am looking
forward to seeing what you clever crafters come up with!

Take care, love x
