New Challenge @ Shopping Our Stash


Today begins a new challenge at...

Shopping Our Stash // #SOS516 ...A "shop your stash" challenge with a theme!!  The theme: "It is not easy being green"...for this current challenge we are looking for all things GREEN...may be a bit of recycling as well!!  

My take on this challenge included lots of pieces are parts from my ink, green card stock, and green candy dots.   I used scrap paper from my left over bin, so I did a bit of recycling as well.  Also from my stash, the Top Note die which was covered in dust and hadn't been used in a very long time!!

What will your take on this challenge look like??? I can't wait to see it!!  Hop on over to our blog and check out the awesome creations from the rest of our design are sure to be inspired!!
