Stampendous April Challenge/Stampendous and Dreamweaver Blog Hop

Hey Y'all!!!

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 challenging 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?!?). Here is my project and it goes a lil' somethin' like this...................CHECK IT!!!

The thing that is recycled on this card is the paper.....ALL of the paper are scraps!

Ready to see some more? Here is the whole list of our fantastic team(that are all teaming up with Dreamweaver Stencils) members who are sharing some fabulous inspiration with you today:
