The more candles...

the bigger the wish!
Hello! I had to do one last campfire card for the season because last weekend was the family camping trip that I had been talking about since July! We did a lot of sitting around the fire! This card 'fits the bill' for my oldest brother's birthday which was yesterday! (late again!) For the card I used Camping Carl from the Humorous Seniors line of stamps at I Brake for Stamps! My brother does have more hair than this but he did reach a milestone birthday yesterday! I won't say which! Remember you can get 10% off any order from IBFS by using my code SAVE10CHERYL
I colored Carl with my copics in the following colors:
Eooo, Eoo, E11 and R30 for skin
YG01, YG93 and YG 97 for his shirt
B41, B95 and B97 for jeans and B99 for his chair seat and back
Y21, E31,33,35,25, 57, and 29 for the stump and other browns
Y38 and YR16 for the embers
C3, C5 C7 and T5 for the stones.

Here is a picture of just one of our fires! I was playing around with night photos! There were 18 of us in 2 lodges and 3 more in a camper at the Hickory Hill Family Camping Resort in Bath, NY.
It was almost equidistant for us to meet there. What a great place in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region. I even organized a scavenger hunt and divided us into 8 teams. It was a close finish, but Buz and his wife Shelly won with 30 points. (Buz is the birthday boy who I made the card for). He was very sneaky in his collection of the items on the list and we had no idea how many he had found! I think we'll go again next year for our family gathering. I {{heart}} my family!
Guess I better get going for work now!
I'll try to be back with more regular postings! (I think that's the awesome Linda Heavens who just joined my site! Can you say STARSTRUCK! )
Have a wonderful day!!

(CCC challenge tomorrow!)
