They are giving this beautiful stamp Ted Rose to the winner of this weeks challenge..

This week our challenge is Recycle something before it goes in the bin. It can be anything
recycled or reused.  Ribbon, cardboard, drink can, box anything you like.

It is not a requirement that you use a crafty pad stamp to enter -
