Let's go Camping!

Hi everyone! Thanks for coming by today! I'm so happy to be designing now for I Brake for Stamps! They have over 3,000 images and great prices! I was like a kid in a candy store!
Della (the kind and generous owner) said that the Humorous Seniors line is very popular. I can see why! I started with the The Great Outdoors (I'll tell you why below~ keep reading,please!) The difficult part was trying not to cover up this perfectly matched paper from Imaginisce. Can you see the campers? The dog cracks me up!
Here's my brief story. My parents raised six children. We all get along well, which, I think, is not all that common. There were no fights over "things" or money when we lost our parents. But, we all have our own lives and my biggest fear was that we wouldn't all get together now that there was no "homestead". Sooo, when some of us were together for a family birthday we devised a camping plan! I carried through and found a central family camping resort and put down the deposit. So we are all going camping for a weekend in the fall! I think there will be 16 of us in two lodges! There are still four little children (fun!). Our 'in between' children are in their 20s so some of them can't make it. I'm really excited! I'm going to use these stamps in a family letter to let everyone in on all the details.
I think it would be a great retirement card as well.
I used BG000, BG10, BG72, R05, R08, R14 ,R17, YG91, YG93, YG95 and E33, E35 and E29
Now, Della like to share the love, so if you order from I Brake for Stamps you can use the code

Thanks for coming by! Look for more soon from I Brake for Stamps!
Have a terrific Thursday!

Love the camper card. Reminds me of lots of past fun. We don't have a camper anymore. I miss it. Have a great time with your family this fall.

I have looked at purchasing this stampe several times, but for some reason have hesitated. After seeing this perfect card, I think I will have to order it. My DH and I are currently in our 5th wheel at the RV park at the Grand Canyon escaping the heat of Havasu, AZ. This image would so cute on a scrapbook page of our travels. Thanks so much for once again inspiring me!

Hi Cheryl, Congratulations! Your card is so cute...that paper goes perfect with the stamp(I'm heading over now to take a look at the other stamps available.) Your camping date sounds like fun, our family has been thinking about doing that too. Nancy

Patty said...

What a cute card and a great story!
We just lost a family member and my daughter-in-law said, "I didn't think this time would come so fast." I thought that was typical of many of us. So enjoy your time with you family while you can.

Candy said...

Hi Cheryl,
Love your card. Isn't that great paper to go with the stamp???
I am so happy to hear that you and your siblings will continue to get together - the camping trip sounds wonderful. These stamps will be perfect for your letter to everyone and will help them all remember the fun time you had each time they read it.
Hugs, Candy
