Caravan Condolences


She started it, trailer wars, a who's vintage camping trailer is better, hers or mine.  I'm sad to say the other day I officially won the war when her Can Ham met an untimely demise on the potholed road to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort outside of Seattle.  My condolences are needed for my sister's trailer, we all shed a little tear.

I tried to figure out which Lawn Fawn stamps would work for the Lawnscaping "Make Your Own Patterned Paper with Stamps" challenge and in the end, sorry ladies, I pulled out a non-Lawn Fawn stamp. I know, the rules say "NO WORRIES", but literal girl over here is having a hard time with my rule breaking.  And this week's ColourQ's colors (kraft, red, kiwi kiss and tango) were definitely my kinda colors!  I'm going to enter it in the Hero Arts "Masculine Challenge" b/c even though I'm truthful that this card is for my sister, it would probably work fairly well for a guy.  Let's cross our fingers we're not sending one of these to my husband!


Materials: Paper Source trailer stamp, SRM Sticker sentiment, Hero Arts Cling Striped Circle, Brillance Moonshine ink, Studio G orange ink, Stazon Cactus Green ink, Brillance Rocket Red ink, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 8, PTI kraft card stock, PTI natural fiber twine

I have to admit I was a bit confused with this card...UNTIL I read your post. So sorry for your sister's trailer! Love your design, and the bright colors on the card.

so sad... is it still on the road to Crystal? you know that's right around the corner from me, right?
I LOVE this- I think it's fun to send a sympathy card for an occasion like this- and much more fun to make!!! :D

Oh, this trailer sympathy card is adorable! I really had fun reading the posts you linked about your trailer wars. Those vintage camper trailers are amazing!! We just bought a used pop-up camper (circa 1993--so it's older, but not vintage like yours) about a year ago. We are having a great time planning adventures with it this summer!!!

Oh my, thank goodness it was just a trailer and not someone's life! This is really cute, Erin and so perfect given the circumstances. I hope your sister has a chuckle over this one. :)
