Camping with my Forest Friends

I've said it before, but it bears repeating -  

I've had the privilege of hosting many MANY forest swaps. Why the forest? Because I'm the Forest Ranger on SCS (it's a l-o-n-g story how I got that name). The current forest swap is heading back to the Forest Friends with today's mail, so I thought it seemed appropriate to give a shout-out to all my forest friends.

This swap's theme is Camping in the Forest and you should see the MARVELOUS cards the swappers made. Oh my goodness... pretty impressive!

As is my practice, I sent a theme-appropriate stamped image to the swappers as well as a couple of sheets of designer paper and a short piece of ribbon. So, I got to thinking... "Self, why not make a card using the same image/papers/ribbon you sent the forest friends?"

So that's what I did.

Here is the card I made:

Here's the inside:

I hope the forest friends know how very much I value their friendship... and I hope they have fun creating with their image/papers/ribbon that I sent their way!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Who would have thought that you could make a forest camping themed cad with pink striped paper - well done on a stunning card Jeanette.

This card is adorable. Your ideas shine through and are enhanced with the non-tradtional colors. Super cute!
