Inspiration Friday - Inspired by Earth Day

April 22 is Earth Day — a day to focus on the preservation and care of our environment. And one week from today, we'll celebrate Arbor Day — another day to plant trees and bushes and get your hands dirty while continuing the growth of trees.

The beauty of nature and the majesty of trees brings a certain serenity to our lives, and it's our duty to care and preserve that beauty for generations to come.

I searched the web for a variety of images pertaining to trees and Earth, and here is a look at a few of my favorite finds:

No matter where you live, you can do your part to be kind to Mother Nature. We encourage you to take time to pick up trash or plant something this weekend to give our regards to this beautiful planet of ours. 

My Favorite Things has some fun products that celebrate our Mother Earth. Let's take a look at some awesome projects that will inspire you to create with the beauty of nature!

Barbara brings us this adorable card using the Prehistoric Fun stamp set. The addition of her watercolored sky and the Radiant Sun and Puffy Clouds Die-namics makes this design shine! I love how it hearkens to a time long ago on planet Earth.

Karin's card is oh so simple and oh so sweet. Her lovely white frame shows of a pretty tree branch from the I'm Tweet on You stamp set. It's such a breath of fresh air!
