Let's go camping

After all the fun of house moves, we have gotten back into the habit of camping. It's fun to get a way for a few days (usually no cell service), and to just hike and read and enjoy ourselves. We have a small pop-up camper. (I'm not sure what they are called, or if they exist, in Europe, Here's a photo).

So, inspired by my camping and the Sweet Pea Mix It Up Challenge this month, I made this card.  The camper image is from Scribbles Designs, with paper-piecing and colored pencils.  The somewhat playful sentiment was stamped on a snippet and cut into a flag. Also used a border punch along the bottom of the green snippet panel. A bunch of coordinating ribbon flags finish it off.

This card is for these challenges:
Sweet Pea Mix It Up Challenge #35 -- photo inspiration
NBUS Challenge #12 -- both stamps and all the ribbons are NBUS
Pixie's Snippet Playground -#299/300- everything but the card base was a snippet
Word Art Wednesday #300-- anything goes
Crafty Sentiments -- anything goes

  2. Fabulous card Sandy, I just love the paper piecing! And those little banners/flags are a sweet touch as well.

    Yes, we do have very similar camper trailers here in Europe. However, we tend to have such a lot of rain in UK Summers that many people go for the full hard shell caravan like on your lovely card. Basically - we're a bunch of wimps! :)

  3. I meant to add, at Leeds Castle they had 'glamping' - which is a sort of 'glamour camping'. A field of already set up medieval striped tents with even a four poster bed and a wood burning stove! We stuck to indoors though! xx

  4. This is adorable! Love the fresh colours! Thanks for joining us at SugarPea!

  5. I'm glad you are settled enough now that you can go back to enjoying your pop-up trailer, Sandy! We had one for years and have lots of happy memories of those times! I just love your sweet green and pink colors for this darling card! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #12!! Hugs, Darnell

  6. I'd love a weekend in there, it's so cute. Pink and green go so well together.
