Dueling Divas Round 11

Woo Hoo! It's that time again!!! I have had a lot going on this week, but it did me good to sit down and do some paper crafting.

This months hostess was Barb and she sent us an awesome kit to work with this month. All about the outdoors! My family and I are campers and in fact are planning a camping trip for sometime in July.. can't wait.

There was a challenge to our duel this month, to share a camping story either good or bad. Uughh.. worst camping memory ever.... first time we went camping, we had a Dodge Caravan at the time. My husband had packed everything, but we had bought a new table for the camp stove to sit on. Well, he decided to strap the BRAND NEW table AND new tent on the top. (rolling my eyes) Apparently  he was not paying attention to what he was doing or something and he didn't tie the stuff down good, so we are rolling down the highway on our way and all the sudden the stuff on top falls off! In the middle of the freeway only about 2 miles from home!!!!! We had to park on the side of the highway, mind you our NEW stuff is in the middle of this same highway. Dodging traffic, he got the table and I got the tent.  Safely, thank goodness. Talk about getting your blood pumping. The rest of the trip was GREAT though. :D

I made two cards and I still have enough supplies left over for at least 2 -3 more cards! Thank you Barb!

This is a card I made today for the SCS Sketch Challenge 335. I am also a quilter, so this grabbed my attention right away the way you had to piece the background. I really wanted to stitch it, but after I ran it through the Big Shot, the stitching would have been mute. It's hard to tell in the picture, but the F has a bit of glitter on it.
