MTTC #511 theme of summertime camping DT card for 30 June 2023

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog!

 Today's creative project showcases the new summertime camping theme (#511) for My Time To Craft challenge blog!

WHAT? = MTTC #511 summertime camping narrows in our just past travel theme. Whether it's backyard camping, a camper trailer/RV, a campground, Boy or Girl Scout or church camps, etc. these are just some ideas to get you started. Maybe you have a child or grandchild going to camp for the first time. I've got nieces working for a Lutheran church association campground and I try to send a 'just because' note card sometime during the summer for them using their code names. There are also day camp programs run by the YMCA and other organizations like 4-H Clubs and others.

WHEN? = June 30-July 13, 2023

SHOW and TELL = "The grass is high at Camp Brown Bear" card


1. four die-cuts = Echo Park and Carta Bella

2. buffalo plaid cardstock = The Paper Studio

3. cloud print stationery paper scrap cut into a cloud; light yellow-green paper fringe cut to look like grass = stash

4. dark brown cardstock = Crafter's Square

  1. Such a fun 'camping' themed card Becca - love it

  2. Great theme and sweet card. I can imagine camping in this sweltering weather would be miserable, that's why we "glamp"!

    1. YES! The older I get, too, I'd rather go glamping!

  3. Fabulous images, layout and layers on this wonderful outdoors card.

    1. A bit overloaded but at the time, I thought it looked fine. Thanks for liking it!

  4. This card is super fun, I love how you've played with the die-cuts to create the scene. And that sentiment is great. Hugs, María.

  5. Looks great Becca, don't think I would like to meet a grissly while camping though!!!!
