A Happy Camper


Camping is NOT my husband's favorite thing to do, but at this very moment he is at Lake Sallateeska (an Illinois Baptist State Camp) helping to direct a week of camping activities for children. His willingness to do this in spite of it being way outside of his comfort zone is a testimony to the value he places upon young lives.

When my daughter (who is here with us even though she lives in Alaska) saw the card I made for today's blog post, she said, "You should send this to dad." Hmmmm... I guess it does seem appropriate.





This card is also appropriate for the Sweet Stampin' Challenge this week

I really love this sweet card Jeanette. The soft palette is so pretty, perfect for that inspiration pic and the blue gingham is lovely as a backdrop for that fab camper image. Love that sentiment too, so clever. A gorgeous card hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo
