Summer fun...

Hi there.  Yesterday I was a guest blogger for Market Street Stamps.  The folks at MSS were kind enough to send a me a stamp set to work with and I chose the Gone Campin' set.  As you might recall, my parents recently acquired a 16" vintage Airstream camper in great condition.  We're looking forward to sprucing it up a bit and having some fun with it this Summer.  I thought a few cards like the one below might be fun to send to guests that visit our camper.  
 I stamped the cute camper image onto grey patterned paper then paper pieced it and layered it onto an already stamped image.  I added some shading with my Copic markers to add dimension.  Along the top of the card I added a popped up, hand cut garland to create a party atmosphere.  I plan to create a real garland of this fashion using some of my vintage sheets I've collected over the years.
 For my sentiment I used a Medium White Tag with typewriter journaling.
Here's hoping that warm weather comes soon.  I'm kinda over the cold weather and all of the flu that has been hanging around our neck of the woods.  I'm ready for a road trip in the Airstream!!  Thanks for stopping by today.

Dang it, so cute! That garland reminds me of those old lights my Dad's cousins use to hang around their camper, you know what I'm talking about?? Love it!
