Love To Camp Card

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you are all doing well :) I haven't had much time to play with one of my newest carts, Campin' Critters, so I pulled it out today and oh my gosh, is it awesome! I so love it. It might have shot to my favorite spot, which pretty much changes daily :P

I decided to create another Father's Day card with this cart. I have had requests to make a couple of Father's Day cards for others, but this one is for my Dad. We camped all summer, every summer when I was growing up. We started in a little pop-up tent, moved to a pop-up camper, then a pull-behind camper, then a bigger one. Now my parents have their "vacation home" a super-nice RV. But it all started out in a tent, which was the inspiration for this project. I have wanted to make this 3D tent since I got the cart, but haven't had time. Father's Day was the perfect opportunity.
You are supposed to glue the top of the tent to the bottom, but I decided to make this a gift holder instead. I don't know what I'm going to fill it with yet, candy or something, but it makes such a cute package!
I made an accordion card to accompany the tent. I used papers from My Mind's Eye and the rest from  my stash. There are so many awesome images and signs on this cart, I had a hard time deciding which ones to use.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
  • Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #17 - Father's Day
  • Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #1 - Decoration for Father's Day
  • Scrapalicious USA Challenge #6 - Accordion technique
There are still no updates on the missing student. "America's Most Wanted" will be airing a segment about her tomorrow night (6/11/11) if you are interested. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT weekend :)

Your father is truly blessed to have such a lovely daughter... he is going to cherish this for years to come. So much love and thought went into this project. I love all the embossing and how you put so many fun elements throughout the card. It's a beautiful journey and I'm so glad you shared it with us! :o)

Hugs and blessings! :o)

You have just inspired me to make my dad a camping card. Some of my favorite memories growing up are from around our campfire. Now, I wish I had that cart to use. Have to see if I can borrow it from my friend next Friday.

Tracey said...

Fabulous......I love all the detail on the card and the tent is so COOL!

Thanks for playing along at "Decorate to Celebrate" with Rhonda and Amy!

Hi Lisa!

Cute! That cartridge looks like so much fun! I love the tent idea and I'm certain your dad will love this card! I did a lot of camping growing up too. There's something so relaxing about sleeping in a tent, even now. Well, that is until morning comes and I'm sore from sleeping on the ground! lol

Hope all is well. I didn't get a chance to see AMW but hopefully with national media taking the story more tips will come in.

Have a great Sunday! :)

You did a great job with this challenge, thanks so much for Celebrating the Occasion with us!

Amy said...

So in my excitement about your project yesterday, I TOTALLY missed that you entered this at DTC too!! THANK YOU!! :) I love your project as much today (maybe even a wee bit more!!)... I was actually thinking last night what a cute gift box this would make for my friends who just purchased a new-to-them RV!! They've been camping in a tent until now and I thought it would be so funny for them to have a little tent 'reminder' :)

Thanks so much for linking up at the Decorate To Celebrate! Challenge Blog!

Lisa,
Once again, you have done a fabulous job. I like how you kept the tent for a gift box and the embossing on the flaps is great. I need to use more embossing on projects. Great accordion card, too. I love the images you used!
Hopped over from DTC. Already a follower.
