Wanna hug a tree?







With me?...I made this card out of recycled materials this was done for a green challenge for Earth day on The Greeting Farm.


I used:

Recycled card board inserts for the base of the card. These were being thrown out at my office. I saved them for my paper crafting.

The frame is the backing from a Prima stamp.

The ribbon is binding tape for sewing which I recycled from our city's recycled re-use it store that saves reusable items from going into landfill.

The flowers are punched from recycled paper from DCWV and the little ones are from scraps in my scrap bin.

The beads are from a little girls necklace that I took apart and saved the beads.


The only items not recycled are the paper the image is printed on and inks.

Heck the image is digi so hey even that is good for the environment...cool!

Hope you like it and that you give recycling a try when doing your cards or any paper crafting it is amazing what you find when you actually start looking around....


Talk to you soon.

Great
Would you believe I actually have hugged a tree?

I was with a group of protesters who stopped the dept of highways from blasting rock and trees to widen the parking lot and loading area for BC ferries and WE WON.

That was years ago, but there is still one person in our area who asks me if I have hugged a tree today when she sees me. =:)
