Well friday wasn't only Good friday but it was earth day too and this time at Creative craft challenges we are sort of doing our bit as our challenge is recycle. Thinking caps on and time to reuse and save some energy for our planet.

The design team have some fab inspiration for you this time round they are such a talented and creative bunch and fab sponsors once again too some odd girl has digis on offer, pretties from cratfy ribbons and our fab DT Ali has some goodies too for the top 3.

How can you not play along.

I decided that I would dress up some recycling, I'm sure we all do it without thinking, pop a plant in a tub that use to hold food. I recently had a move and sort out of my craft stash and found some alcohol inks I'd forgotten about and decided to dress a couple of pots for my plants.

The first was a mascapone cheese tub, I used a scouring soap pad to remove the writing and had a play with the alcohol inks, I then did the same thing with a steamed pudding tub think this one had a christmas pud in it but love how they turned out.

Looking forward to see what you recycle too.

I would like to enter these pots into the following challenges:-

Fresh brewed coffee-sparkle and shine
Anything goes challenge-pink and brown , hope pink and bronze counts
If the shoe fits-recycling
