Happy Father's Day, Camper Dad!

Remember the family vacations spent at the lake sleeping in a tent with bears roaming around the campground? How about the racoons who invaded our coolers at night? I'm sure you remember dad digging a trench around the canvas tent so the water stopped rushing through it and instead went around. No? Oh wait, that was my childhood. Well, hopefully, you have some fun memories that can appreciate this card:

Stamps: Under the Stars, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Mosquito Wheel
Paper: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Marina Mist, Soft Suede
Ink: Soft Suede, Marina Mist
Accessories: Postage Stamp Punch, Standard Wheel Handle, Baker's Twine

I love this stamp set, so I wanted to use it for my dad this year. Hopefully, he gets one. The colors may not seem masculine, but I like them! The ladies at my Stampin' Celebrations Club this month made 4 of this one, including choosing their sentiment if didn't want too many father's day cards!

Happy Stamping!



  1. Well, we didn't do any camping. But I certainly remember lots of mosquitos whenever we would visit our family in Miami :P

    Cute card!

  2. Cute card! Those images are great with that postage stamp punch!

  3. Well, there wasn't a tent, but a trailer, and LOTS of skeeters in my childhood! A fun set to use for memories!

  4. LOL! I remember everything but the trench, we used a tarp under the tent and it was a 12 person dinosaur of a tent that took all 6 of us to put up!! We went every other weekend for 2 summers straight. We would go camp in Rogers, MN so we could go sell the lawn furniture we made at the Minneapolis Farmers Market all summer long....those were very interesting summers I might add!!
    Love this card, and I bet my Dad would love it too!

  5. Adorable! Brings back so many memories of tent camping growing up. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
