Challenge 96 - Anything Goes

Good morning everyone!

Wow, your recycling projects last week were amazing!  We had such fun looking at what you had done, its amazing what beautiful creations people can make with the oddest things!!  Thank you everyone and congratulations to the winners.

So onto this week, and its me (Pami) to set the challenge today and its nice and easy!
"Anything Goes"
So let your imagination run wild!

We are sponsored this week by The Stamp Man.

The Stamp Man has an on-line shop, a fortnightly challenge blog and a monthly ATC challenge and swap.

The shop has a varied range of products from basic materials through to more specialised items from companies such as Ranger, Spellbinders, USArtQuest, Woodware, Moonglow and Walnut Hollow Metal.

Jill also has her well known range of 'Aspects of Design' stamps which include a brand new set called 'Framies'  that can be used with the nestabilities labels range. These are fabulous designs that enable you to use them on their own or as as toppers when used with the dies. This range will soon be extended so it will be well worth popping back to the shop to see what new images and labels will be available.

They are very kindly offering the winner this fabulous Hero Arts Clear Stamp Set.

So would you like to see what the DT have done this week!? 
Here we go



So now its over to you!
You have until next Wednesday 4 May at 8.00pm (GMT) to enter your creations. I do hope you will join in and play along, good luck!

Hello everyone.. thanks to everyone who took part in last weeks Yummy Chocolate challenge.. the DT loved seeing all your creations .. even if it did make them Crave the sweet stuff lol

Today its time fr a new challenge and its time for Me - Lisa to choose the theme .
April 22nd is Earth Day - and i like to do my bit -so i would like you to use something "recycled" on your project. Lets see what you can do with your bits of old rubbish! You might just be surprised!

  This week we are sponsored by - Ladybug crafts Ink

LCI Online Store

and the prize is one stamp of winners choice from Ladybug Crafts Ink. Why not pay LADYBUG  CRAFTS INK store a visit -there are lots of cute stamps, ribbons,felt and gems for you.

The DT were lucky enough to be given a Ladybug Crafts ink  image to work with ( but a couple of the newer DT members had already made their cards - with their own images )

So here is some  "Rubbish" ........oops Inspiration from the DT ...

 I used a brown paper bag that Freddies crickets come home in lolololol!!! & a brad I got off a xmas card someone sent me!!

(Recycled Flowers from another card)

I've used Buttons & Ribbons off a make gift set i found in my daughters room (naughty me!)

Recycled - cardboard, string, text paper, brad and charm

(recyled gift box, cream paper from another card, buttons)


Box recycled and ribbon recycled from PJ's

an old envelope, a Pie Tin,Ribbon and label from Pyjama's  and an empty  Ferrero Rocher box.

 Recycled items - brown Kraft paper from inside packaging on a recent purchase, torn pages from a VERY old school dictionary of mine which has been dropping to bits for yonks, a leftover piece of gingham from a dress I made ages ago for one of my granddaughters.
Recycle Items: a CD from my sons Playstation Magazine and some buttons (The big red one is from my cardi that I was wearing at the time!)

(Recycled items:  the pale green backing behind the image - it is from some Prima flowers, and the spotty ribbon)

So now its over to you ...
