Stampotique Designers Challenge #107 Recycle

Time for another great challenge over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge

This week our lovely hostess Samantha Read has chosen a fab theme for us! and it's right up my street Sam, thank you!

Here is what Sam says..

I dislike throwing anything away that 'might come in handy one day' so I have a corner of my art room filled with bits and bobs to be recycled. For this weeks challenge I'm inviting you to recycle something, I've chosen an empty glass jar and turned it in to a hanging candle holder for the garden, now all I need is some nice warm evenings . . .fingers crossed!

Hehe.. we definately NEED some sunshine in the UK!

Like Sam, I really don't like throwing anything away if I think it can be recycled and probably look at things differently to the rest of my family!! I am always checking through the recycling before recycling day!!

I received a couple of new t-shirts for my birthday and was thrilled with the tags as well as the tops! Knowing Sam's challenge was coming up I knew they would be perfect! All I had to do was to remember that 'safe' place I'd put them in while demo-ing & getting samples ready seem to take over my every waking minute!!!!!

I found them again, just in the nick of time! ;-)

Lovely thick card & just look at the cord!! Yummy.....

Here is my altered/recycled tag!

Stamp used: Bubble Bath

Yess, it's bathtime for bunnies! Isn't he just the cutest!

He is one of the very talented Maria Sabina Raita designs. I just love how he is peeping over the bath, that's just me when the water is too hot!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog, I hope you can join in with the latest challenge over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog, remember each weeks challenge is open to all stamps & the challenges stop open until the end of each month, if you follow the rules you could find yourself being one of two random winners each winning a $30 gift certificate to spend in Store.

Happy creating, Gez oxox
