We have this wonderful yellow ribbon bundle kindly donated by the lovely ladies at The Ribbon Girl as our prize this month for our favourite entry so its well worth raiding the recycling bins :-)
This isn't a challenge like some of the others out there in blogland where you recycle an item by turning it into something else - we are strictly a card making challenge site - so whatever you recycle we are looking for you to use it ON A CARD.
It may seem like a tricky challenge until you give it a little thought - I could be as easy as taking an empty cereal box and stamping on the kraft card stock inside, taking a ribbon from an old card or left over Christmas gift, or getting creative with bubble wrap for a fancy inking technique. I hope this and the fabulous inspiration from the design team gets your creative juices flowing...
Speaking of Design Team, I would also like to welcome a new member this month - Sylvie - otherwise known as Gibmiss has gladly agreed to join us. Sylvie has been a regular player since day one, and even sends her lovely cards all the way from Gibraltar to us for our sales and her cards are always gorgeous so I'm sure you'll find her inspirational! Welcome to the team Sylvie :-)
Anne - using wrapping paper, a cracker and old card embelishments
Deborah - using wrapping paper and sweet wrappers
Lynne - using wrapping paper inner tube, doily from a party, recycled items from cards and pressies
Jenny - using twine from gift tags
Sylvie - using the back of a paper pack, ribbon from a top
Tara - using a cracker and tissue paper from a gift
So now - it's over to you - go and have a dig around in your drawers and cupboards and let's see what new life you can breathe into your old stuff. Be sure to tell us what items you've recycled - we're excited to see how creative you can all be.... REMEMBER ONLY CARDS QUALIFY FOR OUR CHALLENGE as we are a CARD MAKING CHALLENGE SITE as the major purpose of this site is to challenge you to make cards and send them to St Luke's to sell for them to raise money for the hospice.
We'll be back in a couple of days with the winners of our let it snow challenge.......
