Ben's Camp Card

This is a card I sent to Ben while he was away at Boy Scout camp earlier this summer.  My sister and downline, Donna, helped me figure out how to cut and fold the cardstock to make the tent.  I paper pieced the bear using different shades of brown cardstock.  The sleeping bags were stamped on patterned paper and then cut out. Real twigs and hemp twine add the finishing touch!  Thanks for stopping by!

I have been trying to post this photo for a few weeks, now, but I was having all kinds of problems with Blogger.  Emily has been away most of the summer, and the week she was home we just didn't have time to sit down and figure out what I was doing wrong.  Then, the other night I had an idea of what the problem could I finally had time to play......and, yes, I did figure it out...........all by myself!  Yeah, me!

Anyway, this is the 8th card from the Christms in July workshop Linda and I held at our church last month.  It is a shaker card, made using a treat cup from the Stampin' Up catalog.  It was one of the crowd favorites!  We had so much fun, that Linda and I are already planning another event on Saturday September 24th.  This time we will be meeting in the church's Fellowship Hall and we will have food!  So save the date, make plans to joing us, and keep checking back for more details.
