Girls Night Out!

The first time I went camping, I took a pink polka dot sleeping bag, pink backpack, (full of M&Ms and Diet Coke) and a butane curling iron.  All my friends fell out laughing at me.  But the other girls sure did like my curling iron the next morning when it was time to get dressed.  And while we were rafting  down the river, I was popular again because I had M&Ms.  We still laugh about that trip.  It was so much fun.  I liked it so much I have never been camping again!

It was not my style.  If there had been electricity, or hot water, I may have had a better feeling about it.  But other than that I loved that weekend, because I was with some great friends having a lot of fun.  Now when someone mentions camping, I just say, "Been there, done that".

Last week I saw a good many cards about camping and I wanted to make one too.  But I struggled with the idea because, it is not my thing.  Tonight after church, some of us were talking about some of our "good old days" and the camping trip came up.  It was at that very moment that I knew just what kind of card I would do.
This is a 5 x 61/2 card.  I made it with the Camping Critters cartridge and used DCWV paper for the moon, and the tent.  The sleeping bag was mad with K&Company paper and all other paper is from the Paper Source.  The sentiment I created on the computer with the Stary Nights font.  I am going to send it to one of my friends who was on that trip.  She will get a good laugh out of it!

  10. Charlotte, my sweet friend, your card is wonderful but I think I'd feel the same way about camping -- just wouldn't be my cup of tea although I'd enjoy myself with my friends!!! LOL!!!
