Happy Earth Day!! ....with a little Mojo.

I truly hope that you are all having a terrific Earth Day and are doing something great for our planet. And not just today, but everyday. Plant, recycle, carpool, conserve, re-use and re-purpose. Being from the great Pacific Northwest, all of these things have been ingrained in my brain since birth. It amazes me to see how many people across the country don't have recycling programs in their cities and towns. When I visited my brother in TN everything went into the trash because they don't have recycling. I almost wanted to take items home with me just so I could recycle them when I got back. ....I know, crazy huh?

Try and change the Earth for the better on your own, little steps at a time. Every little bit counts!

In honor of this great day, I decided to make an earth inspired card using a stamp set from the Summer Idea Book that comes out on May 1st. One of the first sets that was a "have-to-have". The set is called "Treetop", and it works perfect with this paper. Love it! This is also my version of this weeks Mojo Monday sketch found here. It's a 4.25"x 4.25" in case you were wondering. I added a bit more dimension to the trees by shading them with a marker and popdotting the center tree.

Materials: All CTMH. Treetop ss, Say it in Style ss. Colonial white, juniper and cocoa cs. Sweet leaf, juniper and cocoa inks, sweet leaf marker, hemp, sweet leaf ribbon round, sanding kit, sponge, popdots.

Other: The Green Stack dp-DCWV, Labels One-nesties, scallop punch-EK.
