Summer fun!

Hi friends! Here's the adorable Bella and her loyal Bronte Camping! It is, of course, one of Mo's images! It reminds me of camping many, many years ago! We were a family of six children and working parents-no elaborate vacations for us! It was camping somewhere around NY every summer-and tent camping (for most of the years) at that! My mom was a trooper! It was a lot of work for her, but SO MUCH fun for us! I don't think I every slept "under the stars", however!
I've used this Cosmo Cricket plaid many times, but this time I was able to use the reverse side too! Look at those little pull campers! Love it! I do not own a star punch, but flowers were not going to work here! I punched the five petal flower from SU and then carefully trimmed off the curves to get the large star. Then I used a similar method inside the 5 petal flower to get a fairly evenly spaced small star. They are sponged with mustard ink, covered with Matte
Accents and then glitter glass. I don't know if you can see it, but I also added some tan Fun Flock to the inside of the sleeping bag! Comfy!
Here's the link to the image at Mo's Digital Pencil!
It may not be camping weather yet, but the sun is shining for the third day in a row! Some of the snow has to melt!
Enjoy your Saturday and thanks so much for stopping by and please know how much I appreciate all the nice comments I get!

I NEED that image! This reminds me of Kali and me when we would go camping on our travels! She loved to go on vacation with us! Lizzie may have the chance at that this year! Great card, Cheryl!
