A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge - Recycling


Thank you to everyone who entered a card into our challenge last week over at "A Spoon Full of Sugar". It has been so lovely to visit your blogs and see all your wonderful creations.

For this weeks challenge we would love you to make a card using a recycled item. It could be simply using up your old scraps of papers left over from other projects or if you want to be more adventurous maybe some buttons, lace or ribbon which you have rescued from some old clothing, any household articles like bottle tops, wrapping paper, tags in clothing etc...

Remember you can use Sugar Nellie, Sarah Kay, Rachelle Anne Miller, Hanglar or High Hopes stamps in your work.

We have a new Sponsor this week Lana from dottydocrafts. Lana has kindly donated the fab prize shown below for one lucky winner this week. If you haven't visited dottydocrafts before please pop over and have a look as there are some great iems in the shop.
For my card this week I have used up some paper and ribbon left over from a previous project. I have also used some string which was rescued from a package. The cute High Hopes characters can be purchased from Silly Monkey Crafts. I would like to thank my friend Agnes for sending me the image of Simon Turtle and the Hugs and Hugs sentiment.

Have a great week.
Hugs,
