Stampendous! April Challenge #1


It's the first Saturday in April, and that means the Stampendous team has a brand new challenge for you. 
 This month, in honor of Earth Day, we are challengeing ourselves (and you) to make something that uses product(s) that are recycled, repurposed, or reused in some way. The possibilities are endless! Snazz up a household item and turn it into something beautiful, use something unexpected on your card, or even just use up some scraps you've had in your stash forever (that's recycling, right?!?)

Now...don't judge-but I have been so busy working ahead on my DT assignments for the end of the month when I will be on vacation that I had to throw this one together pretty quick and didn't have time to think about what to recycle....So...I may have cheated a little bit on the challenge this week.

I recycled an old Sketch.  Technically...that is recycling-RIGHT?!?

This card is based on a very old Mojo Monday Sketch  It was #11!!!.

See...I could have just thrown that sketch away but I pulled it back out and reused it!  Yep! I'm pretty sure it fits the challenge....

Here's the inside:

Ready to see some more?  Here is the whole list of my fantastic teammates, who are sharing some fabulous inspiration with you today:

Don't forget - we want YOU to play along with is!  You have until Thursday, May 3, 2012 at 11:59 PM EST to add your direct link to our collection at the end of this post (or on the Stampendous blog).  You do not have to use Stampendous products, but we sure love it when you do!  As an extra incentive for playing along, one lucky crafter (drawn at random) will receive this fabulous Mother's Love Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.  Available in stores now, it will be on the website for purchase soon!

Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address.  We hope you have a chance to play along with us (you an enter as many times as you'd like!) this month...Happy Crafting!
