Hello crafty friends, it’s Saturday and that means it’s time for a new Open-Minded Crafting Challenge. This challenge asks you to recycle something. This can be something you’ve used before, have had for a while, or a material that could be recycled. I took a rather different approach to the recycle theme, which you will see in my card. I think you’ll get a chuckle out of it.
As is our custom, we have some wonderful sponsors providing several generous prizes for our randomly chosen winners. The Design Team will also choose their favorite entries and those cards will be showcased on the Open-Minded Crafting Blog. The challenge will remain open until Friday, April 24th, and I look forward to seeing what you want to recycle.
Now let’s see what those prizes are:
Now, how about some inspiration on what I am recycling? Grandma! LOL I think she’s been around long enough to qualify, don’t you? This adorable image is from Stitchy Bear called, “Birthday Girl.” I colored her with copic markers and used Bazzill’s School Daze 6 x 6 Paper Pack. The oval and flag dies are My Favorite Things and the sentiment is Taylored Expressions “Party Grumplings”.
Happy Saturday! Today’s new Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp! That means a $25.00 gift certificate to our random winner. Yippee. You have until Friday, April 17th for a chance to win.
Here’s the sketch:
For my card I chose a previous kit stamp from Simon Says Stamp called, “Favorite Flowers”. The design paper is from Basic Grey’s, “KneeHighs” collection. The “Good Times” die is from My Favorite Things cut out from DCWV foil paper. I then took a panel and stamped several of the flowers in Hero Arts Shadow Inks. The star is a die from Simon Says Stamp and part of a great set called, “Bundle of Stitched Shapes.”
I can’t wait to see what you come up with using the new Sketch Saturday Sketch!
