Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Everyone, meet GOAT!  He is the latest and greatest image from Hambo.  The Hoedown this week - Hoedown #63 - Using Goat and one of the sentiments, create a project that uses something you have recycled!

All of the items I've used to make this card (and the alternate cards at the bottom) are from my scrap stash that I've had for a long time, some bit of scraps or something recycled.  The newspaper was sent to me by a friend for my vintage paper collection.  Thanks Mary K!  And I thought it would work great here, as I know goats eat paper. 

I'd like to give a little creative shout out to Carolyn C.  I was inspired by her card for this challenge with her goat eating some of her hay paper that I had to do sorta the same thing.  I don't know where she comes up with her ideas. 

No need for a materials list on this one; except to let you know what Copics I used:  B00 B32 B34 B41 B45 E30 E31 E41 E43 E47 W1.

I've been trying to use my stash this year instead of buying.  I've been doing ok with that.  I have bought a couple of 6x6 paper pads recently but that's it!  I've been using my stash and I'm so proud!!!

Thanks for checking out GOAT and try and play at Hambo when you can.  Know why you should?  You get a free digi image when you play.  That's enough incentive for me (plus they are really adorable!)

Oh wait, here's the other cards, that will be going to the troops!
