Peachy keen challenge #26

Ha! With all that's been happening to me last week, I totally forgot to do my Peachy Keen challenge card!!
Can't have that, can we! There was no way I was going to let Kathy and Angelica down, just 'coz of surgery.
They have been so good to me, it wasn't an option. (For two pins, I'd've sneaked some stuff into hospital and done it, only I wasn't in long enough). LOL

(I'm still quite restricted at the moment, so please forgive me not having made the best of samples).

The challenge this week is...........
  • Stitching (either by sewing needle or hand-drawn)
  • White and Orange (card could have more colors, but must include these two in the card)
  • Contain one upcycled item (something that could be thrown away but instead will make its way onto your work of art!)
  • Any Peachy Keen Stamp
 As I'm not able to raunge with my Sew-mini at the moment, I chose to do faux stitching. The 'thread' is done with a Sakura gelly roll pen. My cute little chick/birdie and sentiment, is from the Peachy Keen set  PK-266 'Duck Dolls'.     There are 16 stamps in this set!!! WOW!
The re-cycled item is the flowers along the edge of the circle. They were made with scraps left over from cutting the card to 5"x7" from a metric A4. They would normally be launched into the bin.
The DP is from SU and I LOVE it. Now, run on over to the Peachy Keen blog and join in with the challenge.
One lucky winner will receive THIS gorgeous stamp set .......

Isn't it CUTE!!!! 
(While you're over there, check out the other samples made by my fabbadabboulus DT buddies. Brilliant)!! Good luck!!

 Thanks for calling by
