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 or repurposed is the green "ribbon".......the ribbon is a field day ribbon from school from many years a go.....my Principal "hooked" me up....lol!!!
