S'mores Anyone?

click here .....Ginger Snap Scraps post

I am so excited to be posting my project for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  I pulled out something I haven't used in awhile.  Actually, I had to get some from one of my fellow scrappers while I was on retreat.  Why is it that you can take everything you think you could possibly need....and yet you still seem to need something else?  I needed vellum.  When this idea came to me I thought vellum would be perfect for the jar.  
Did I bring any with me?  
Of course not.  Thanks Doylene!

This weeks challenge is showing a camping project.  I personally have never been camping.  
I know....don't laugh.  A huge joke around work is that my idea of camping is Motel 6.  LOL

So this is what I came up with.


Here's what I did:

Card base and arrows - Art Philosophy
Envelope and Liner - Wild Card
Fireflies and Jar - Stretch Your Imagination
Distress Ink - Gathered Twigs, Mustard Seed 
and Black Soot
Patterned paper - Bo Bunny Camp-a-Lot
Card stock, twine and metallic pencil

Sentiment - K Andrews Designs Amazing You
Jar - Doylene's vellum

 Don't forget to go check out the challenge this week at FCCB.  I know that the rest of the design team has created some great inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by!  See you later!

Until safe and create 


  1. Love your little glow bugs!! I don't even remember the last time I seen one of these, brings back childhood memories.

  4. when i lived in Texas, we chased fire flies and we were all college students! I LOVE this card and it is soo out of the box. You knocked this one out of the park. You should see if this card meets any submission calls for Nothridge Publishing!

  9. Love your vellum idea. My kids would have loved this they were always trying to catch lightning bugs and trying to put them in a jar so they could watch them light up for hours.

  10. Love,love love your "brilliant" little lightning bugs! Your card AND envelope are soooo cute! You did an excellent job! We have lightning bugs every night here in the North Carolina mountains. Thanks for sharing.

  11. That envelope is perfect! I here ya about crops. I used to live five min from my kids school where I did weekend crops so I could run home if I forgot anything. Now that I live 30 min away from school I run to the craft store if I "forget" anything;-)
