Go Green Challenge for KL SNS

Hello there, Stampin' N Scrappin' crafters!!

There is a new challenge going on at KL Stampin N Scrappin design team blog

this week, and it is hosted by ME . . . Kelly!!

It's the "anything you would have/should have thrown out but didn't challenge!!" LOL

Okay, okay, I know that's a little bit long, so let's just call it the

Go Green Challenge!

I challenge you to create a card or altered item using something you might have thrown out before you became a crafter! Easy, right?! :)

Some ideas to get you going, you say? . . . how about

boxes, bows, soda tabs, bottle caps, pins, tags, etc.

Above is my card using the top piece off of a Kleenex box, because it was just too dog-gone pretty to throw away, and the Brushed Daffodil stamp from DRS Designs

(which are new to the KL SNS store)

My second card above was created by working around a Bit and Bridle tag, which came off of my husband's dress shirt I purchased last year at the Tractor Supply Store. I loved the western feel of the tag and the distressed look, so I kept it for a guy card "some day;" and I finally got to use it!! The stamps are the Bareback set from SU.

Note: It also qualifies for the Saturday Spotlight Challenge with all this distressing going on.

Their challenge is called "Do the Mess Around." : )

The KL SNS deadline is Friday, February 26th at 12 midnight EST.

The prize? There will be blinky awards for the Top 3 best cards,

and one lucky winner will be drawn for a surprise gift from ME. Wooot wooott!!

So go rummage through your "saved" items to alter
(does everyone have a bin like that or just me?)

OR . . . check the recyclable goodies in your garage or basement for a bottle or can to alter, see
what you can use, and let's get creative!! I can't wait to see what you make!

Then pop on over to KL Stampin N Scrappin's design team blog

to link up your card in Mister Linky for a chance to win!!

Happy Stampin N Scrappin!
