Outside Fun at Creative Knockouts

Challenge #291

With our weather in British Columbia, Canada getting warmer, it's time to do some spring cleaning on the ol' RV to get ready for some outside fun!

You will have until April 3rd to link up your creation  at Creative Knockouts for a chance to win an amazing prize of a $10 gift certificate from Sweet N Sassy Stamps.



This image from Sweet N Sassy Stamps is Camper.  It comes with two wonderful sentiments, one of which I included on the inside of my card "Not all who wander are lost".

I thought the arrow background paper was appropriate for "wandering" so I colored the image with Copic markers to match the papers.  I added some texture with embossing folders and free stamped the sentiment "happy trails" onto a yellow tag.  

There are so many ways to have fun outside so start creating and show us your way!

Prize:  $10 gift certificate to their store

Challenges:
Aud Sentiments - Any sentiment except Happy Birthday
MOO-Mania - Colorful
Make My Monday - Circles

This image is Ice Hockey Hugh and I love this guy!  I have a number of hockey fans in the family and I know I'll be using him often!  I used W series copic markers to monochrome him up.  The background hockey paper is from my scrapbook stash which works perfectly with Hugh.
