Roughin' It

 
 

This is my card for our every other month swap for an awesome group of ladies on SCS--the SOTC--Sisters of the Traveling Cards!  Linda was our hostess for June and she posted the following:

Get Outdoors

I'm so excited it's my turn to host! I was thinking of all the fun things we do when the weather gets warmer. For me in New England, each season really has a different look. Since Winter is ending and the warm weather is inevitable, I think about spring and summer when we take our camping trips, taking hikes in the woods when everything is so green, bike rides on the trails, canoeing, swimming, etc. So my challenge to you is to make a card that represents some activity you love to do outdoors.


I love this Bo Bunny stamp set--it has so many cute images and sentiments.  I do love the outdoors and also camping--in a tent as well as a camper!  I had a reason for using the moose patterned paper. Last week we were at a friend's house in Colorado and saw moose pretty much every day.  A mama and her baby were outside the house twice and we saw this pair one morning as we were on the deck drinking our morning coffee:




I hope Linda and the other "sistahs" like my card:

Right at Home


This is a card and tag I made for a new group I am a member of on SCS.  It is called the Girls of the Baker's Dozen.  This group is a kind of mystery image swap, where we each get an image and additional items along with a challenge each month.  Debby was the hostess for June and sent us this cute image from an older Stampin' Up set--Right at Home. She also sent us a card base along with some papers and embellishments.  Debby challenged us to also make a tag with remaining parts of the kit.

I plan to use the tag to put over the neck of a bottle of wine to bring to a friend's house where we are staying for a weekend in August!



This was a fun kit and I know the next kit from Kelly is in the mail now--Yippee!
