Camping Themed Card

I was so happy to have gotten to go to the stamp show last weekend.  I had never even been to a real stamp store, so to be able to be in a room with 17 stamping vendors was really neat.  I also bought a few things, including the stamp set I am using today.  It is a new stamping brand to me, and they had so many tempting sets.

But, there is nothing like a camping set with cute sayings!  I am a sucker for these because I send lots of cards to my son when he is at summer camp, and there are plently of other outdoorsy types in my family to whom I can send these cards.

I definitely recommend sending funny cards if you send them to kids at camp because you want them to be encouraged to have fun at camp and not be homesick.  These sayings would also be good if you send to hospitalized kids.  

Card details:  I did some masking for a little scene and colored with markers.  It took me a couple tries to get the fox color right.  Then I just grabbed my campy paper and scraps in my scrap box.

Supplies: Darcie’s LLC Forest Be with You stamp set, Memento and Versfine black inks, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, My Mind’s Eye Happy Camper 6x6 paper pad, other supplies from my stash

I would love to enter this into the Library Challenge: The Hobbit.  I was inspired by the fox in the book and the muted colors in the cover.  

Thanks for stopping by!

You can find me on facebook or pinterest, too.

What a fab card and great take on the challenge, the sentiment is brilliant... perhaps his marshmallow roasting stick is his pretend lightsaber lol x

Heidi, your card is fabulous. I love this little fox and you had the perfect papers to go with him.

I'm so happy you found something you really like at the stamp show and the way you colored this cute stamp set is amazing! Love the whole scene you created and it makes me miss those days when we went camping with the kids and roasted marshmallows and mountain pies :)

How fun, I've often wanted to go to the show in Carson CA, but I am rarely visiting my Dad when it's on.

YOur fox is so sweet, love that illustration. Your coloring as usual is wondeful.

Can you say cutness? This card is so adorable. It's nice that you found a set so dear to your heart. Foxes are so in right now and boy did you hit it on the head with the right colour too.

We have a huge stamp store in the next city over but I never get there because I know I'd spend too much money. I'm tempted to go very soon though.

That is the cutest little scene. And, I love how you colored it. And, I really chuckled when I read the sentiment. This is a card that a person of any age or gender would love.

I love the combo of patterns and colours with the campy theme. I'm always attracted to these kind of images too, although I'm a bit short on campers to give them to! Thanks for joining The Library.
