Please visit their blogs and welcome them to the Design Team.

We are also changing the challenges to MONTHLY and below is the start of the first monthly challenge.
Onto the challenge for this month which will run from Friday 13 April 2012 until mid-day Thursday 10 May 2012.
As the title says this challenge is "recycle and birthday".  We have chosen the topic "recycle" as it is World Earth Day on Sunday 22 April 2012 when events are held worldwide to to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth's natural environment.
The prize on offer is 3 Sweet Pea Stamps.
Don't forget to leave your link and only use Sweet Pea Images.

Here's a little inspiration from some of the design team:

Using the Rebecca Sinz stamp called "The Ghost" by Sweet Pea Stamps
My recycled items are the blank protector for a set of blank DVDs which I have coloured with alcohol inks and the large ribbon bow that came off a box of chocolates finished long ago

 I have used fabric and lace from an old dress that was beyond repair!

Used a Meredith Dillman image and my recycled item is the distressed and inked piece of kraft paper behind the image - it's cut from a Muji bag that I am slowly cannibalising for various craft projects! 

Used recycled buttons on the card and an Elaine Cox image
