Simon Says.... RECYCLE!!!

It is my turn to issue a challenge & I thought long and hard. I came up with the idea while sitting in the dark during Earth Hour a couple weeks ago, and thought, let's try to save our Earth!!!!!

So, your new challenge is to RECYCLE!!!! Use something/anything that had a use before. Examples could be ribbon from a candy box, tissue paper wrap that was in a gift, bubble wrap, plastic laminate sheets that come with your stamps, fabric from an old, favourite pair of jeans, an old photo, card or magazine page....if it was used BEFORE, you can use it AGAIN!!!!!!

This challenge will be open until April 28th so we'd LOVE to see what you come up with!!!! Please remember to link us to your blog post in your comment so we can all go have a peek!!!!! Also, you don't have to use Simon Says stamps for these challenges!!!

Also as an added bonus Heidi the owner of the Simon Says Stamp Store has very generously offered a special prize of $25 to choose whatever you like in their store !!

Das Thema diese Woche ist: Recycling.
Ihr könnt für die Challenge benutzen was ihr wollt, nur eine Sache an Eurem Werk muss recycled sein. Es gibt einen Gutschein im Wert von 25$ zu gewinnen, einzulösen bei Simon Says Stamp. Wir hoffen auf Eure Teilnahme. Viel Spass bei dieser Challenge!

Temat kolejnego naszego wyzwania to RECYCLING.
Użyjcie w swoich projektach czegoś, co miało wcześniej jakieś inne niż kraftowe przeznaczenie - przetwórzcie to w Waszych pracach. Macie czas do 28 kwietnia. Zamieśćcie link do swoich prac pod tym postem lub w komentarzach.
Macie szansę wygrać zakupy o wartości 25$ w sklepie SimonSaysStamp!!!

A második kihívás témája: "Újrahasznosítás"
Otthonotokban, környezetetekben a már használt dolgokat kell felhasználni az alkotás során.
A győztes 25 $ értékben vásárolhat a Simon Says Stamp webáruházban.

A határidő április 28.-a. Jó alkotást kívánok!!:)

Here are what the Design Team has come up with for your viewing pleasure:

(recycled ribbon from a chocolate box
& a button from an old shirt)

(recycled a toilet paper roll
for the tag holder)

(recycled all of the bits to make these FAB albums)

(recycled an old tin)

(used a cork mat, packing paper, a book page, piece of felt,
old lace, corrugated cardboard, and buttons found in a drawer)


(Altered an empty cigar box)

Simon Says 1st Challenge :-).

Hi everyone and welcome to our 1st Challenge :-)

This Challenge will remain open until the next one is posted on the 15th April.

We thought that as this is the first one the challenge blog owners should choose the colour theme. Heidi's favourite colours are


To celebrate the launch of this new challenge blog Heidi and Jason have generously offered a fabulous prize of a $20 GIFT CERTIFICATE to spend in the store to a winner chosen at random from the entries :-)

So Simon Says he would like you to make something using those colours, though you can add other colours too ! You can make anything you like, a card, ATC, altered art, anything you like :-)
Please see the challenge rules on the sidebar too.
When you have made it leave a link on this post and we will come along and see your creations :-)

The blog candy closes this evening so if you haven't already entered you'd better be quick and leave your comment on the blog candy post !

The DT have made some cards for you to see and maybe give you a little inspiration, please take the time to visit their blogs and leave them a comment :-)


CHRIS MADE 2 !! :-)
