Stamping Is Rubbish!

Junkyard_eleven Stamping is rubbish . . . at least it is if you use recycled materials 🙂

For my Stampin' Pretty Pals downline challenge this past week and Earth Day, we opted to incorporate recycled items in our projects.  Thank you to Pal Denise January for coming up with the challenge.

I'm so excited about what the group produced (they are so clever) and simply had to share. 

Please be sure to click on their names to visit their blogs for further details.
