Happy Earth Day!

Today as I was running along the beautiful Columbia River, this card came to mind.  I was being pelted by rain but I was okay with that.  It then struck me that today is Earth Day (and John Muir's birthday)!  I created this card in my mind as I ran.  I also remembered that the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge is outstanding occasions.  Earth Day, in my opinion, certainly is an outstanding occasion.  Perfect!!!
I will enter my card into the Lawn Fawnatics challenge

I used quite a variety of Lawn Fawn products:  Stitched Mountain dies, Happy Happy Happy dies, Stitched tree border, Stitched Hillside dies, Finley's ABC's, Wish You Were Here stamp set, Love You S'more stamps/dies (squirrel and bird), Scalloped Box Card Pop -Up dies (banner), and Watercolor Wishes pattern paper.  Phew!!  I stamped the globe from Wish You Were Here 5 times, colored them with Copics, then cut the letters out.  I'm happy with how this card turned out. It reminds me of the California High Sierras, and of course of the John Muir Trail...in my opinion one of the most beautiful places on Earth.  I've been fortunate enough to have hiked this glorious trail 3 times (and ache to do it again!).  So...here's a toast to caring for our planet on Earth Day 2017, and to one of my heroes...John Muir!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. This is a very adorable way of paying homage to our environment. I like the blended sky and the rolling hills with "Earth" die cut from a globe pattern.
