Earth Day Hops GOIN' GREEN!

Hello everyone!!


First of all.. Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

I'm joining in on TWO Blog Hops today -- it's Earth Day.. a day I hold pretty special.. it's always been close to my hippie little heart. So I couldn't say not to either of the hops that came up for me to participate in!! So I've joined the two in this one post and at the end you can just take your correct fork in the road!

The first is the May Arts Ribbonista hop!! 
(You should be here via Emily's Blog)

And the 2nd is leslierahye's Earth Day hop!
(follow the inlinkz at the bottom of the post!)


And now... onto my project. As I said before, I'm a HUGE fan of Earth Day.. heck.. I KINDA like this place ;)

So today I've put together a tag featuring some gorgeous Sunflowers and a short message.


My tag is actually recycled from the cardboard insert of some Pink Paislee packaging out of the Chest Hope collection! I've also used a slip of paper, a sticker, and one of the paper pieces from that collection.
I've used the Black Burlap String and the Ivory Scallop Satin from May Arts
The stamp is the brand new Sunflowers from Viva Las VegaStamps!
I made the Sunflower on the bottom out of muslin and Distress Stain, the center is Amazing Mold Putty's quick cast resin and Tattered Angels' Glimmer Glaze.
The Make Note Polaroid is from us here at UmWowStudio
I used adhesive from Helmar USA
I stamped in Archival black by Ranger, used Mustard Seed, Broken China and Rusty hinge distress stains, Walnut stain distress ink, a MS punch, and a Mustard Seed distress marker.



The fantastic Ribbon Lady from May Arts is giving away this beautiful set of ribbons to one lucky duck who comments along the blog hop!


And I'll be giving away this fabulous Floral Set of chip to some OTHER lucky duck who is commenting on my blog today :)

thanks so much for taking the time to stop today!! If you're here via May Arts please move along to Charlene's Blog!
