It's A Green Thing Blog Hop

Hello & welcome to the It's a "Green" Thing Blog Hop- About Nature! My friend, Tina, from Crafty and Green is hostessing this hop & loves nature & being green! So, We are so glad you were able to join us today to celebrate Nature with Spring just around the Corner!

If you arrived here from Kimberly (my fellow DT member of Paper Piecings by Nikki), then you are in the right place! If you just happened upon my blog today, please start at the beginning with Tina from Crafty and Green  because we wouldn't want you to miss anything along the way!

This is a two-day hop; however, we are only making one project. That should give you two full days to go through the entire hop and leave comments so you are able to be entered to win the prizes!

 Sponsors & Blog Candy:

 $20 Gift Certificate

Scripture Sayings Stamp Set

Rules to be Eligible for The Blog Candy:
1.)  You MUST visit each blog and leave a comment on every blog in the hop
2.) You must become a follower of Crafty and Green if you aren't already!
3.) For an “Extra” Entry for the Blog Candy, Please Friend Tina at CraftyandGreen on Facebook

For today's project I decided to try my first tri-fold or shutter-fold card!  I just loved the way it turned out!  However, I'm debating adding some cute critters and some flowers to it.  Let me know what you all think!  If I get comments saying it could use more stuff, then I will do it and post it for the second day of the hop, but if I get more comments saying I should leave it alone, then the card is done! ;)  Thanks for playing along with me today.  Would LOVE to hear your opinion!  

I used all Stampin' Up paper and the Give a Hoot Cricut Cartridge (which is perfect for this hop, btw).  I did my usual inking and pop dotting and there you have it!  Easy peasy right?  Why did it seem to take me forever then??? LOL  I'm such a slow crafter!  It drives me crazy sometimes.  I hope I'm not the only one out there who has this issue! ;)  

I would love to see you all tomorrow because I will either add to this card or repost an older post that many of you probably have not seen if you are a new follower.  The decision of what I post will be up to you!  I would also LOVE to see some new followers so if you like my work, please do so!

Thank you so much for joining us and helping us celebrate Nature! Your next stop is the talented and crafty Charity!

XO ~ Amy Jo

Your project is absolutely gorgeous. I have tried making a project like that, and it did not turn out very well. So, you have inspired me to try again!

I have become a follower of your blog and also via e-mail. I look forward to following you and keeping up on your creations!

Thank you so very much for a lovely blog hop.

I have been following for awhile - a fellow FM/CFS sufferer who loves to craft. I also like simplicity so I think your card is great as it is - please don't add anything to it.

Cute card! I've not tried this technique, but may have to revisit the idea. I like the idea of adding a critter or two as well.
