have fun!



Happy Valentine's Day!  I want to take a moment and thank some of you lovely folks out there in blogging land.  I think it's awesome that we all share this passion for crafting and I really enjoy all the great feedback and support.  I recently won a bunch of blog candy, many thanks to Lora, Emily and Laurel for all the fabulous crafting goodies, can't wait to play with them.  Now back to the cards...  Lawnscaping Challenge is having a challenge that's "All About Love."  Well since my Lawn Fawn supply is limited to Just My Type and Swimsuit season I had to think about love in some other light, and then it hit me-- my family loves camping and we just bought this awesome 1957 camping trailer.  The photo above is from our first overnight trip on Saturday night.  My little guys are sitting by the campfire, that's what I call love!  I incorporated a vellum sentiment strip for this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge.  

Below are the cards I made for my children's valentine's day parties.  Let's just say I do not like mass producing cards.  I can make hundreds of cards, but I like them to all look different... so I struggled with the left-to-the-last-minute task of making 40 cards.  


Materials: Paper Source trailer tramp, Lawn Fawn Swimsuit Season sentiment, PTI Mailbox Greetings hearts, PTI clouds die, Brillance Rocket Red ink, Brillance Moonlight White ink, Stampin Up black ink, Twinery Lemondrop twine, red triangle eyelets, white gel pen, vellum, Fiskars rotary scallop cuter, white card stock

Hi Erin, I am so glad you got this posted early tonight, since I want to go to bed early!(for me) I am two hours later than you(11:20now). I like you hate mass producing one card. Yours are cute and I know appreciated! I love this camping card. I think it is a perfect card for this challenge.
