Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge

Happy Sunday my Crafty Friends!  Today is another Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky with K Andrew.  The theme for today is "Give A Hoot", we are encouraged to use an owl and something recycled on our project in honor of Earth Day.

For my project, I used the Give a Hoot Cricut Cartridge.  I cut my heart earth at 4 inches and my owl at 3 inches with all the layers.  My card is a typical A2 size card.  I used a piece of old dictionary paper as my background paper and part of my recycling.  My green ric rac is also recycled, its what was wrapped around my stamps I received from K Andrew!  All of my paper including the base is from my scrap drawer.
For my sentiment, I used the Positive Thoughts stamp set from K Andrew Designs.  "Attitude is Everything" is the perfect sentiment for Earth Day.  For your own set of these wonderful stamps click on the picture below.

  3. LOVE the idea of using a page from an old book for a background! You could pick up an old book at a garage sale cheap and have LOTS of pages to work with!
