Recycle It With A POP Of Green!

Thank you so much to everyone who joined us this past week for the Office Supplies and RED challenge. The entries really did take my breath away - they are all simply gorgeous and we will be having a tough time choosing only one as a winner. Be sure and check back on Wednesday to find out who it is!

This week we have a similar style of challenge but a very different theme. I'm feeling like a bit of a "GREENie" these days so I wanted to host a challenge in support of my inner hippie. I think we are all a little more aware of our environment and the impact we have, so with this in mind I would challenge you all to create a project using something you have recycled. And use the colour GREEN!  I often use packaging in my creations so this was one of the first things which came to my mind, but use your imaginations and give something otherwise headed for the garbage a new lease on life.

Here is the inspiration badge for this week as created by Anne Marie. Thank you so much Anne Marie - your talent is amazing!

Let's kick off our talent parade with a double delight from our guest designer this week, Lynn Put! I just love the card and the gorgeous matching gift tag. These colours are wonderfully warm and rich and remind me of all those beautiful autumn tones for this time of year. Lynn I love what you have done here with the challenge - absolutely stunning. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us.
