Challenge #156 At Meljen's Design

Welcome to Thursday :)  We begin a new challenge at Meljen's Designs today and it is Challenge #156 - Recycle. Here is my card for this challenge:

The image I used is Teddy Bear Couple. For my "Recycle" I used a bottle cap. I added small beads to the inside around the edge and in the middle after I added the "Happy Anniversary" sentiment. I covered all of that with Diamond Glaze. I added the ribbon to finish it off. The green paper layered underneath is all wrinkled up. Everything is colored with Copic. I had a blast coloring this image! And the inside is from a rubber stamp from Club Scrap.

This has been a week... I had to move from my super cushy corner closet at work LOL It was literally a supply closet that they put me in and it was my little sanctuary for a couple of years. Oh, I loved my little quiet space away from everyone. But, as we have run out of space and continued to hire a bunch of chiefs, I have been moved out and into a cubicle. Everyone is so loud and rude LOL But then... I'm just bitter because I had to move to a much more populated, loud and not so private area. I will adjust, but until then I will complain a little LOL About people sneaking up behind you and just standing there all creeper like! I brought a mirror in so I could see them coming up behind me! Okay.. I'm done venting :p  Like I said.. I will adjust.. after I put some beads up in my doorway LOL!!! Alright.. I'm really done :p  Alright everyone!! Get busy with the challenge this week :)  I can't wait to see some great designs!!

Have a great rest of your week everyone!! And Happy Crafting!!

Sorry you have to "prairie-dog" it now. It is quite different than being in one's own space. Hope you get used to it soon! :^)
