We are Ready to Rumble...

In a friendly way of course!

It is time again for our duel....Michelle was the hostess with the mostess this month and we are going out into the Great Outdoors!

We were asked to tell a story.....hmmm....al of my camp outs have been memorable, but one that sticks out is a few years back when one of the guys was introducing us to his girlfriend. I say the guys b/c my hubby has had the same set of friends since they were in four grade. And, when I married Mike I was told that I wasn't marrying just him, but all five of them.... But, back to the story at hand. Our friend brought the girl of his dreams camping with us, and all she did was expect him to wait in her hand and foot which didn't sit well with many....the final day we were camping, it started to drizzle....she expected our friend to take down the screen house as Mike was washing dishes...under it!! I have the pictures in my scrapbook....strange, but true!!

Here is what she sent....
Image - Whippersnapper Roasting Mellos Bear, all stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar Crest white cardstock.
DP - Both are from the Imaginisce Happy Camper line.
Ribbon - American Crafts
Brad - Eyelet outlet
Buttons - October Afternoon Campfire
I added a piece of green cardstock and madethe base from a piece of kraft cs.

And here is my creation!  The pattern for this stand up card was recently showcased on SCS....had to give it a try!

Oh my goodness... I love your card, April! I have never made a stand up card, but now I want to. And I love how you cut out the campfire separate from the bear. Too clever!

Giggling for sure about your story! hmmmmmm... is it safe to assume, the friend's GF is no longer around?

Hugs!

Love it April! It's too bad that dream girl was not the camping type....it only takes one to ruin a good time...been there!!

I have made this style card but didn't know what to call it (this was before it was spotlighted on SCS)....I love it ☺
