WOYWW: Earth Day – Reflect Card

Reflect Card
Happy WOYWW dear friends – and Happy Earth Day to you! This week, I am buried in books as I am in the midst of several Read-A-Thons! However, I went on a nature walk earlier today to clear my head and gain a fresh perspective after the events of last week. When I returned home, I felt rejuvenated and ready to craft!

I decided to use a combination of newly acquired stash and recycled supplies (in honor of Earth Day) to create a scenic nature card and recapture the experience. I used the blank Kraft cards I picked up on my shopping spree with Prince Charming and the free decorative packing tape I received from Wholeport to set the mood – the combination of neutral colors are quite calming. From there, I used recycled stickers to build the scene and capture the moment. I thought the clear stickers reflected “emotional transparency” in a way that stamped images would not on this particular card , which I entitled “Reflect”.

I visited a number of new Challenge Sites for this week’s card. I hope you have as much fun exploring them as I did!

Have a wonderful week and hope to see you at Inspire Me Monday, Wordless Wednesday (where Legend and Tsunami rule!) and Friendship Friday!

      I’m glad I could find a creative way to share on your linky! You may have to jog my memory each week, but I’ll do my best to support your party!

      By the way, as I was reading your post, I thought of this awesome book called Campfire Cuisine that is sitting on my desk, waiting to be reviewed. I’ve already looked through it and I love it – just trying to find the time to sit down and write it up. It’s about doing more “upscale” cooking during your travels than the traditional frank and beans…

      Anyway, be on the lookout for the review – it sounds like a book that might be perfect for you and your family! 🙂

      Have an awesome week!
