Camping under the stars

 Oh what fun..... at the end of the week my friend's daughter is going to Girl Guide Camp. I can remember going to girl guide camp as a young girl and having the time of my life.

So to wish her the time of her life with lots of great adventures, making new friends and earning badges I made her this card.

Isn't it cute? I used Recollections and Bazzill Cardstock for the base and the background I cut from a 12x12. The fire is a sticker embellishment from

This is part of the Bo Bunny Camp A Lot paper and embellishment collection. I matted a cardstock sticker  from the Fireside Fun Sticker Sheet...... I love, love, love this collection. I love the little sign by the tents that says  "Welcome Campers".

I made a 3" girl guide from the Paper Doll Dress Up and the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridges. To make the guide tie I used the smallest maple leaf stamp I had and used Memento Bahama Blue ink.

And if you're like me .... you can't draw, so I used Peachy Keen's PK490 Everyday Character Faces Assortment. I gave her some pink cheeks and used my Sukura White Gelly Roll pen for the eyes.

I used DecoArt Snow Writer to make the marshmallows and then used chalk to make them "roasted"... heeeheee.

 I used the Spellbinders Grommet Tags and the Peony Dies, stamped and colored with asstorted Tombows and Copics. The sentiment is Happy Camper from  Imaginisce.

I added a couple of buttons... the tree and the blue tent as "grommets".

Well I sure hope she has the best time at camp and brings home lots of great memories. I know I did.

I will be Linking Up to Sarah Hamer's Link Up Tuesday... you should head on over and check out what everybody has been up to.

I will also be linking up to the Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge - Peachy Challenge #23 - Anything goes. Stop by and check out all the great entries.
