Paper Playtime-Cricut Creations-Challenge #67-Recycle

The first Monday of the month means we are having a new Cricut Creations challenge over at Paper Playtime!! And the theme is Recycle. We challenge you to use something recycled on your project or to recycle an item into something new. I really wasn't sure what I was going to do for this challenge. With that on my mind, I was puttering around in the kitchen and grabbed a Hershey Kiss w/Almonds. I thought, hummmm........ I could use the little paper tab as my recycled item. Now, I just had to eat enough to get the right tab for my project. Such a hard job, but hey, someone had to do it!!! Only took eating about 6 to get the right one. The 'kiss' is from the Doodlecharms cartridge. It is the candy corn cut. I used my Gypsy Girl and hid the lines that would have cut. I cut it from some silver cardstock I had in my stash. I think I had gotten it at Hobby Lobby a year or two ago. I cut two so i could pop up the top layer and put the tab between the layers. I used a stamp from Home for Christmas stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps. Mary's stamps are awesome and this shows that they can be used for other things. Not just seasonal. I computer generated 'Candy' using Curlz MT font at 48 pts. I then punched it out. I used foam tape to pop it up. The bg patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie 8x8 Paper Pad. That's it. Now it is your turn. Create something and link it up so we can come by and admire it. You have until noon, EST, Saturday, Janurary 14th. While you are over linking or if you need some inspiration, check out what my DT Sisters have created. Awesomeness for sure!!! And check out the prize you could win this time! Pretty good stuff that our DT Sister Maria is sponsoring! Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

LOL Aren't you funny--having to eat all those Hershey Kisses. If you're anything like me it was certainly a struggle. Hehehe My one vice in the whole world...chocolate. (Well, not including my paper addiction). This card is adorable and I love how you used the Christmas stamp in another way. I think you should have counted that as your reuse and recycle.
