Arty Girlz Recycle Challenge


Recycling has always been close to my heart! Being a teacher of young children for so many years made me worse I think.
I would save all sorts of junk for the kids to make models and collages etc.
The image on this card started life as an Easter Egg box.
I made a whole series of cards from one box last year and this year my daughter (having received a similar egg from her father-in-law) knew better than to throw the box away!
It is now having a diversion before going to be recyled in the traditional way!
The sentiment reads 'Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads'
