Big Hugs for a Special Tree

Hello Crafty Friends,

Hope you are enjoying the weekend. I took my daughter shopping earlier today, so she could spend her birthday money. She got two books, a dress, and a Betsey Johnson necklace. She found one with a hippo charm on sale at Dillards. Now she is saving to get the matching earrings. If you have never heard of Betsey Johnson, check out her crazy yet fun style.

Did you know Earth Day was in April (22nd)? How about Arbor Day (27th)? At the former school I taught at,  I had an Environmental Club. The students would recycle throughout the campus every Friday, we would do the telephone book collection, they learned about the importance of energy conservation, and we even earned a grant to start a native garden. The students absolutely enjoyed being a part of this club and learning how important it is to protect the environment.

In honor of these two special days in April, I have made a use-your-scraps card for any "tree hugger".

Here is my project...
Simply Charmed catridge ~ tree (p. 55)
White, green, teal, and rust card stock from scrap box
Martha Stewart edge punch for flowers
teal gems
white ribbon
Encouraging Thoughts stamp set by Cardz TV
What do you plan to do for Earth Day?
Do you recycle? If so, what? If not, why not?
Can't wait to hear your responses!

  3. love your card! so pretty! i love trees on cards! we do recycle what we can at our house. i also like to upcycle and use coffee cans, boxes,jars, etc to make into gifts or coin banks etc!

  4. Super cute card. We don't do anything for Earth day. We do recycle everything we can in our area. Really cuts down on garbage. Unfortunately we can't recycle any plastics here except #1 and #2. Drives me crazy...there are so many that aren't included here.

  7. This is such a cute card.
    We Don't do a whole lot for earth day. I just pre-cycle all year round meaning I do not use a lot of things that need to be thrown away.
