Do you celebrate Earth day??
I don't mean like a big party, and such, but did you know that April 22nd, 2013
was Earth day.  Do you recycle?? Do you make conscious choices to do things better for the environment?  I can say that since we moved to Phoenix almost 6 years ago
we have definitely become much more aware of doing things for the environment,
and in turn I guess more Earth Conscience.
So, here is a little tribute that I made!
I started with these two coke cans that I fished out of the garbage at work!
Yep, at work!!!
I cleaned them out, and cut them down so I could use the aluminum.
See....  I cut the can down, and then I used my alcohol inks in green, and purple.
I added some brads on the corners so the aluminum would stay on the paper!
I added a little bit of twine from the twinery, and the "Thank You" sentiment in the middle,
I'm gonna send this off to my sister and bro-in-law in Florida who were gracious enough
to let me and mom stay with them for a few days while on vacay!
Oh, and I'm also playing along with the challenge over at.....
This cute little card took me 9:07 to create!
I will say that I did cut up the can's prior to starting,
I didn't want to rush that too much and cause a major cut!
Thanks for stopping in and checking my creation out!
