Okay Stampers! You know what I'm talking about. You see those reuseable bags at the grocery store, Target, etc. We are going GREEN! You know there are Three Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Let's concentrate on the Reuse and Recycle for today's challenge card.
A couple of months ago, I bought some new kitchen towels which were wrapped in some fabulous off white Twill...about 1.5 inches wide and well over a yard long...score! Then I harvested some hardware off of an old card that has seen better days. Mix it with some ink and cardstock...presto magic! I've reused and recycled!

Sounds cool! I'll sleep on it! I have a TON of reusable stuff laying around! I just recycled some broken hair barettes to my stash today. I have brand tags off clothing, buttons I've snagged off old shirts.....I can't wait to come up with something! Just hope I have enough time to squeeze one in tomorrow!
Love the early post, Dawn!!* Didn't have to burn the midnight oil for this one. * This was quick and easy since it was just a matter of recutting and adding some already stamped images that were in my stash from many years ago.* GOING GREEN

I'll make a card tomorrow to go along with the recycled project I made earlier this week - the base for the hat is made out of an almost empty roll of packaging tape. Here's a link to it and I'll be back with the card in the am.
I love this, just love reusing and recycling....a lot of my supplies have been recycled...yay!! I have a fun recycled image I have been holding onto...now is the time....off to 'play' and will be back later!!! Thanks for this opportunity- we can help 'make the world a better place' in 2 ways - our cards and recycling...sounds good in theory! CYA!
Hi everyone...Well...my post was TOO long for a Panda Report update....I was late getting there, and missed it...But, according to the teacher, he got a PERFECT score on his Oral Presentation! YEAH!!!!!!!! He had the students laughing, participating, and their undivided attention the ENTIRE time!!! YAHOO!
His teacher was not impressed by Markie's hand stamped Written Report cover, though...He REALLY worked hard on it, and I was a bit peeved that she said, "Don't you have a computer?" to Markie....She has no appreciation for HANDCRAFTED work, and she needs a "time out!" LOL!
so I am blatantly cheating today.... I won't have time to play as I have the grand baby all day today, but I do love to recycle stuff and do so often. Of course this has one bad side effect: I save just about anything that I *think* I could possibly use
Here is a cotton ball container that I made Sunday from a baby formula can and covered with stamped designer paper: recycle everything! . Forgive my cheat

I have not done a challenge since I started the new job. I have today off, so I am going to join in after I get the kids to school. Yay, I get to stamp for fun!

"The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases,"
At first I thought I wasn't going to do this challenge - then, I thought well, I have so many bits and pieces of rejected cards laying around - give it a try. So glad I did. I will use this for a thank you card!
Sounds like a fun challenge, Dawn. Not sure if i'll get to play today, have a couple of sick kids so who knows how my day will go! As it is, I was up all night with little one so I can't even think of what i might have that i could recycle!
