I love to Recycle!!

My father-in-law loves to, what we affectionately call, go junking!! That means, he goes and gets things that other people don't want anymore, their junk, and then sells it to people that do want it, or he uses it himself. Anyway, he has been cleaning up a piece of property where there is TONS of junk....and I do mean tons!! My husband and I went over there to look around, because, Hey, I like digging for treasures!! You never know what you might find!! While we were out there looking, we came across this HUGE pile of plexiglass strips! SCORE!!!! They are 3 inches wide and various lengths! I KNEW I could do something with them, so we loaded up 2 milk crates...which were also there....double score! Those will come in handy later!! Anyway, we loaded up 2 milkcrates FULL of plexiglass strips!!!! Now, time to show you what FABULOUS things I did with them!!! Oh and guess what stamp set I used.........you got it!! Baroque Motifs!!!! And my new favorite ribbon, Satin Pomegranite!! I used white stazon, which is not my most favorite ink by the way!!! I also used the retired Headline Alphabet. I'm still in denial that it and Letterpress have been retired!! They will never retire at my house!! They will work until the rubber falls right off of them!!!!



Aren't they Lover-ly????? I just love the look of the clear with the white ink!!! I have a TON of these strips in long lengths too!! If you would like to purchase a sign for your home please contact me and we can work out all the deets!! You can contact me at stampadoodledoo@att.net. Y'all come back now, Ya hear??
