Camping and a Mother’s Day Card

This past weekend I was camping to celebrate my birthday.
I stayed at the Kelsey Bay RV Campsite.... here are some pictures of where I camped!

Not quite the panoramic picture… but gives you the feel of what I looked at from my trailer, looking east. It was a really nice campsite, only six sites, but cozy and with a heated washroom!
This side of the inside passage is the one that the cruise ships go up, and it is so close it would be a wonderful place to stay in the summertime, to see the cruise ships pass by at night! (take a look at their website, and you'll see how close the cruise ships travel past!)

I had a wonderful time, but knew I had to do this card for the Card a Day Blog. I thought it would be a great opportunity to remind everyone that you can do a neat card with just a few items…. that and the fact I did not have a lot of room to pack lots of crafting stuff!
I made this card with a white piece of card stock, approximately a 5 inch square piece of colored card stock, silver felt pens, and some dimensional glue (colored) that I had, as well as a regular gel ink pen.  The phrase I wrote on the background was “the ribbons of your love encircle my heart”. It was an anonymous phrase I got off of… and only now I realize that I did the quote wrong! It was supposed to be “the ribbons of your love are woven around my heart”!  Oh well, the meaning to me is the same.
The tag was cut out of a piece of white cardstock (I used a box to help make the template), then decorated with silver markers, glue and regular pen… glued on top of the written card base - simple!
Enjoy, and remember to challenge yourself to do a card with less, not more!
