April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for April. To celebrate Earth Day, this month we are showcasing projects that feature recycled, re-purposed, or earthy/recycling themed elements.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Mary Fish at Stampin’ Pretty, number 10 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

I had a stamp class this weekend and one of my guests, Paula Teixeira, shared a card she had recently made at a class. There are six women in my stamp club who meet once a month. We all start with the same card materials but end up with distinctly different cards at the end of the class. This is my take on the bunny punch art card. I have seen versions of this bunny punched art on various web sites and decided this would be the perfect card to share in honor of Earth Day. The tree bark stamped background, the bunny, the butterfly, the eggs being hidden by the greenery – Perfect and just in time for Easter. This card put my Stampin’ Up! inventory to the test!
