It's Earth Day and The Robin's Nest is Hopping!

Welcome to my little corner of the crafting world!  I'm so glad you are here. You should have arrived here from Amanda's blog.  If you have just found our hop along the way please go back to The Chattering Robin's blog and start from the beginning.  You won't want to miss a thing because each blog will be giving away one package of Robin's Nest Dew Drops to one lucky hopper and one grand prize winner will be chosen to win a leather binder from The Robin's Nest.  The winners will be posted on The Chattering Robin's Blog on April 29th so be sure to check to see if your name has been chosen.  In order to win you must leave a comment on every blog on the hop. 

Today is Earth Day and I wanted to share with you my project using products from The Robin's Nest.  I've been in the mood to make ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) lately and decided this would be a great project for today.  This way, I can share it with a friend.  An important part of our environment are the trees.  They sustain so many aspects of life that we don't really think about and it saddens me to have been seeing a lot of the nice old trees in our neighborhood being cut down for new reason lately.  If we didn't have trees we wouldn't have shade for us to sit or places for the birds to sit and sing. These are only the simplest of reasons why trees are important to us.  Earth Day is a day to give back to our environment and a good activity to celebrate is by planting a tree. 

Enjoy the day and be sure to celebrate the life that the earth has helped to sustain for us.  Maybe plant a tree or a garden, clean up somewhere or simply plant a flower.  Any little bit you do helps everyone. 

On this project I used:  Chipboard Shapes, Solid Black Dew Drops,Family Rubon and Dark Distressed Red Paper

Thank you for hopping by and now you will be on your way to Carol's blog.
