Earth Day Card

Hey everyone!  Hope you are all enjoying your Tuesday!  I am back at work today, after the nice 4-day weekend...  I can't believe how fast this year is going by (both, the calendar year and the school year)!  Soon I will have to say goodbye to these kiddos...  :(  Anywho, today is another challenge over at Krafty GirlsThe challenge this week is to create a project using something recycled or create an Earth Day project.  As I was making this card, I was thinking about how excited my students get about saving the Earth.  They love to talk about recycling and they pick up litter on the playground, etc.  Last year, one of my students would thrust his fist into the air and say "We're Going Green"!  It was so cute!  I couldn't find any Earth images on the Cricut, so I had to freehand the continents onto a circle and then color it myself...  Hope you like what I came up with!

Create a Critter- hearts cut at 5.35", .76", .41"
George and Basic Shapes- circle cut at 3.12"
Zooballoo- tree cut at 3.59"
Scrappy Moms Stamps- Spring Fling
Stickles- Christmas red
Prismacolor watercolor pencils

Hope you'll join us over at Krafty Girls!  :)
