Blogger's Challenge -- Going Green

This week Lisa was being good to our earth by asking us to Recycle or Reuse something.  I decided to did in my bin of cheap finds that I can't pass up (usually under one dollar).  I found this cute little metal frame thingy--it was twenty five cents.  Thought it would be fun to make a new Christmas Decoration for my door to the studio (basement, lol).  Here is the before....

And the quick and easy re-do...






I think these snowmen are too cute.  Such a fun and easy project.  Thanks Lisa at least that is one thing out of my bin--only a couple thousand more to go!!!

Stamps: Holiday Lineup
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Other: ribbon, markers, rub on sentiment

Off to do some clean up outside--it is a beautiful day!
