Just call me "Trailer Trash!"


Tee-hee!! OMG, isn't this a hoot? A co-worker of mine wanted a card for his sister who LOVES to go camping. He told me that when she and her husband go, it's like a HUGE party with the other folks in the campground! He says, they ride from campsite to campsite on their golfcart, and stop in, visit a spell and have a beer, or two, or three..... you get the picture! So as I'm listening to him tell me this with total AMAZEMENT in his voice, I'm thinking, "yeah, so what? Ain't that what everybody does?" ROFL! Seriously, if you've never camped in a campground, you haven't LIVED! Now that's the life.... laid back and EASY livin'! Oh well, just call me "TRAILER TRASH!" LOL!!!

Ok, so here's how I made this little cutie. I started with an older set from Whipper Snapper called, "Great Outdoors". I stamped the travel trailer in the foreground first and then masked it for the second trailer behind it. Then I masked both and stamped the trees in the background. I colored the scene with my Copics and used some DP from the October Afternoon Campfire collection as the backdrop. I thought it came together well and he LOVED it when I gave it to him. He said it was exactly what he wanted. Yay! I do LOVE it when I get it right and can make a card to truly FIT a person. Okee dokee, that's it from the hen house today. Oh, and don't forget to pop in today over at Stamping Bella. Emily has a SURPRISE release today! Woot-woot!! Be sure to check it out.... I just bet I'm gonna be starting a new WISH list of "must haves!" Shhhhhh, don't tell!! Have a MAH-VELOUS Monday! {{{hen hugs}}}

Supplies:
Rubber Stamps - Whipper Snapper; CS - Neenah Classic Crest, SU Early Expresso; DP - October Afternoon Campfire; Copics; Baker's Twine; Twine
