Hi-De-Hi, Campers !!!

There is a new challenge today at Stamp Fairy Challenge Blog, and the theme to play along with this week is "masculine".  I've decided to use Father's day as my theme, and as my dad loves camping, I thought it was a great excuse to colour up "Lenny Camping"; one of the recently released sets at Stamp Fairy.

I'm really getting keen on decorating the inside of my cards to complement the front cover, so I've used a second image from the same Lenny Camping set.  OK, so I admit that my dad now has upgraded his tent to a camper van, but he is still a boy scout at heart !!!

[update : before this post has even "gone to press", my hubby has now decided he wants this card for HIS father.  I guess it is appropriate because my father-in-law likes camping too (the "proper" (ie tent) variety of camping - none of this fancy camper-van camping!!!), so looks like I'm gonna have to make another card now for my own dad.  Doh!!!]

Please pop on over to the Stamp Fairy Challenge Blog to see the other creations by the talented design team, and to enter our masculine challenge.  I look forward to seeing your creations this week.

I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting.

Your colouring of these images is wonderful. I am sure that your FIL will love it. And he is right, tenting is the proper way to camp.
