Firstly I would like to thank all of you who left comments on my last post, you guys have heaped so much praise on me, my head won't fit through the door lol. Seriously guys, your comments are very much appreciated, Thank You All :) X

Now on to my post.........Yes, everyone RIP does mean rest in peace, but it refers, in this instance, to resting, as in sleeping undisturbed in the posh camping area at the Download Festival in Derby. To camp in the RIP area it is very expensive!!!! probably because they have HOT running water in their showers and FLUSHING TOILETS!!!! which us common campers do not have, anyway, my friends and family go every year and every year we say next year we will go RIP and of course we never do because it's sooo expensive!!! Which brings me to the card I would like to show you. This is a birthday card for my friend, who struggles through the common camping with me.

Here it is, Let me know what you think.

Unfortunately no, I didn't colour the sky or the grass, it's printed card, if only I was that good :( I did, however, colour the tent and girl using Marvey Le Plumes and pencils. The tent is actually coloured purple and yellow, but the purple has photographed blue????


Tent - Digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil
Girl - Rubber Stamp from Crafts and Me
Sky and grass printed card, Ribbon, Yellow daisy backing paper, Purple flower, White heather, Brads and Tiny daisy charm - Hobbycraft
Large white daisies - Wild Orchid Crafts

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges

Divas by Design - One for the Girls
Paper Pretties Wednesday - Flowers
Crafty Creations - Flower, Patterned Paper, Ribbon
Guylous Inmitability - Green, Purple, White, Flower
Some Odd Girl - Make a Scene
