Let's Go Camping~GRRRR

The new challenge theme at
Summer Vacation 
and being hosted by our very talented 'sistah' Debbie.

I used to love camping and decided to use that theme for my card
with a little bit of 'fun'  thrown in!!

Have you ever been camping, gone to use the 'facilities'  at night and heard
the underbrush snapping on your journey and YIKES
first thing you think of is a bear, well at least in Michigan
you might have that experience!!
So that is how my camping card begin...with those scary thoughts!!

I created this card by first stenciling a big bad moon in the background
using some ever faithful TH Distress inks.

The bear and sleeping bag are from an older stamp set of  SU's
that I believe is called 'Under The Stars'.

I added a few die cut trees, and a rolling hill.

Take a peek over at The Sisterhood blog and see all
the Fabulous creations my 'sistahs' have created!!

Hey, Sis, I haven't had much camping experience and your bear makes me rather glad that my mother's idea of camping was a Holiday Inn. LOL What a cute card though! Your moon is fantastic! I was rather surprised that your stamp set is from SU. Too cute!! Great card, Sis!

Ack! So freaking cute I can hardly stand it! Yes, I've had that experience -- in Sequoia where we were camped in a walk-in site with only sleeping bags and a flashlight. Very primitive. Ranger drove through announcing "bear in camp". I can't believe all we did was move our sleeping bags closer to the car. Sheesh! Boy, has our camping style changed, but we still love to go. Fantastic card, Diane!!
