A recycling Elzybell challenge

Hiya! This weeks' challenge was "recycling" and were to interpret that however we wished. Soooo, my recycled things are the ribbon ~ under the Party Teds it says "making memories" because it was wrapped around a Making Memories Christmas gift I got in 2007! And also the bits of dp you see are from a project I worked on almost 2 mths ago. Those should count, right?! Aren't these Party Teds the sweetest?! Ok, so I say that all the time, but it's true! This is a 4x4 card. I also added the "just for you" sentiment to the inside and colored the stars around it w/ my celery and garden green markers to match the dp. Hope ya likey and check out what the rest of the DT made! Oh, and I may have gotten the hang of my copics ~ am I right that shorter strokes work better than longer ones? The left ted was colored using longer strokes and the right ted was colored using shorter strokes. (different colors, of course) Maybe it's me, but I think right ted is blended better. Ok, I'm rambling! Oh, and I sponged the sky and grass for the Flourishes blog challenge!

Thanks so much for all the thoughts and prayers regarding my Mawmaw. The service was beautiful, the boys behaved wonderfully and it was nice seeing some family that I hadn't seen in probably 20 years.
