New Challenge at Practical Scrappers this week - Punches

Hey everyone,

Today is monday so it's time for a new challenge over at Practical Scrappers.  This week's challenge is to use your punches.  This was a tough one for me.  I don't have very many punches and the ones I have, I don't use very often.  For this challenge, I used a circle punch to make my two flowers.  I also punched out some hearts to adhere the page.  I then used a border on a piece of patterned vellum.

Practical Scrappers is also starting a new monthly challenge that is a little different from their usual challenges.  "The first challenge for the month of May is going to be called "Recycle, Renew, Reuse". Earth Day has just passed and we are full swing into the season of Spring, otherwise know as the season the renewal, rebirth, and regrowth. Your challenge is to create a project (LO, card, altered item whichever your preference)using a recycled item (cardboard, cereal boxes, popscicle sticks, plastic...etc)on your project to give it a new purpose than what it was intended."

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.  Love the idea of recycling something on your projects.  Hope everyone had a good weekend.  I got some fabulous hand made cards from the kids.  They were so happy and proud of themselves for making them.  Priceless :)
