Earth Day Celebrations Starting

This post is staying at the top of today's post. Scroll down to see the numerous posts that are taking place today.


Kick up those heels--Earth Day Celebrations have begun. I'm heading over to the justjohanna forum now, to play in the challenges.

My challenge is to reuse tin foil lids from containers such as coffee and yogart. Examples are posted below.

Remember, participate in my challenge, and link me to your card (you are encouraged to upload it to the justjohanna Earth Day gallery), and your name will be submitted for the grand prize of $250. You have until midnight my time (Detroit/Toronto).

PRIZES PRIZES PRIZES

One (1) grand prize of a $250 justjohanna shopping spree.

One (1) second prize of a $50 justjohanna gift certificate.

Five (5) third prizes of 25% off coupons for the justjohanna online store.

One (1) limited edition Al in Space rubber stamp for the winner of each of the individual challenges.




GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!


(no idea why this is an odd colour and is underlined. Pretend it isn't please).

I have a nephew that's going to love receiving this recycled card for his birthday; he played the lead part in his school play entitled, "Pirates of Penzance." What a talented young man he is!

Do you recognize the clouds and waves as being recycled tinfoil freshness seals? Yup, they come from yogart and coffee containers. Of course I had to use my Cuttlebug to embellish the tinfoil. These justjohanna images make perfect sea-bearing animals, don't you think?




Somehow, "Tree on a Hill" seems to be the appropriate name for this card. It would be a lonely looking tree but the justjohanna animals know that everyone and everything needs a friend. Shh, they are really tree-huggers in disquise.




Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
How I wonder where you are

It looks like this cute little owl found out where the star was hiding after all--it was close to the moon. If only we knew that as a child, perhaps we could have swung on a star too!
