Pals Blog Hop: Earth Day is Every Day!

Thank you for joining us for the April Pals Blog Hop!  To celebrate Earth Day, the April blog hop  features new cards and projects that capture the essence of Earth Day through colors and images and/or use recycled or reused elements.  We hope you are ready for some fun and creative ideas. You should have just left stop number 24 on the Pals Hop – Rae Harper at Wild West Paper Arts.  If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

If you’ve ever stamped with me you know first hand that I do not throw any paper in the garbage!  Joy C., one of my Circle of Pals calls me the “Paper Police”.  She shakes and trembles (jokingly) when I catch her throwing even a 1×1″ piece of paper in the trash… LoL.  To make my card today I gathered all my used up scraps of card stock and designer series paper and used the Blossom Petals Punch (121808) to design the flower on the Mother’s Day card.

I made many more cards, but for the sake of keeping you moving along, I will post those other cards in the days to come, so come back now.

Left over scraps from various projects.

Stampin Up a Card Swap for Mother’s Day

The best thing I love about making a card is watching the recipient smile as they rip open the envelope.  Officially, English is my second language and believe me when I say that there are not enough words in the English language to tell you how EASY PEASY it is to make a handmade card.

You want to make your own card?  Card ingredients are below.  This card was made in under 15 minutes and was sent to a Stampin’ Up! card swap club I participate in once a month.  The swap is open to everyone and you can visit them on Facebook today… Click HERE.
