Hello Everyone




My Cousin lives at the front end of my road (we live toward the dead end) He is 11 years old and a real sweetheart. He is at Church Camp this week and we miss him and decided to make him a card to let him know we missed him. I used papertrey Ink paper,  Potpourri Basket Cricut Cartridge (an Ebay find for $35) and my Gypsy to create the tent card, the fold is along the left side and I used the copy/paste feature to get two copies of the tent the same size, I flipped one and butted them together and welded them, I cut out the overlay piece (dark green) and glued it on and then I cut out the pieces to the campfire and pop dotted the campfire to the tent. I did some doodling and added the "G'Day mate" stamps from Joy's Life and wrote him a personal note inside. I hope he loves it! This was a quick and simple card but I liked the way it turned out, sometimes "boy" cards can be a challenge so here is an idea! Thanks and please don't forget to leave me a comment.

Tammy, that is a great card. I'm sure your cousin will be delighted to receive it. I agree with you, boy cards are a little more difficult.
