Forever Camp Friends

Coffee of the Day - Toasted Coconut

We are getting ready to head out the door for a day of shopping in PA...... clothing is tax-free there, so many people from Ohio head for the glorious Pennsylvania borders every year before school begins to grab bargains galore. I myself have never partaken of this annual trek, but Mick's significant 'friend' and her mom have convinced us to go along this year. He leaves tomorrow for Bowling Green, so we are going to try to get those last few things he needs to prove what a stylin', profilin' dude he truly is! grins! oh goodness, he would be mortified to read this..... giggles!

His 'friend' is someone that he has known for years at camp, so I thought this card would be perfect for him to give to her today before he heads off to school. I am forbidden to actually discuss the boys' relationships on my blog anymore, as they now call this the 'blog of death' to any relationship they have - so I will only allude to what is going on in their love lives.......... moms have a way of getting around those pesky rules our children give us! ;)

I tried to keep the card somewhat 'manly' since it is coming from a guy afterall. the cute image comes from Tracey over at The Stamping Boutique. Papers are from the Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy collection. I added some belt loops and buttons I pulled off a pair of Mick's shorts that were being tossed. The sketch came from an old Pollycraft one.

Hope you have a wonderful day! Will catch up with you soon! hope to be back getting crafty in a few days as life settles back down when Ry starts up HS next Tuesday.

Hi Jennifer,

Hope you are doing well. This card is so cool! Really terrific image, but what I really love is all the distressing and those belt loops are a stroke of genius - they add so much to the overall feel of this piece.

Have a great shopping trip!
