FM168- Happy Together

Good Morning Everyone!! Today at the Friday Mashup we have a new challenge for you! It's all about summer and the colors, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Mellow Moss. Whenever I think of Summer, I always think of camping. Now camping is not my most favorite thing to do as a mother. As a child, I loved it.

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project using the colors" Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon & Mossy Meadow".
  • Create a project with a "Summer" theme . (Beach, Picnic, Swimming, etc.) 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Summer project using the colors above".

So first let me say, this card is very simple by my standards. That's ok though because sometimes you need a simple card, especially if it's a guy card. They don't need all the froo froo that we like to put on cards.

 Like I mentioned before, when I think of summer I think of camping. 
This week my son is on a boy scout camp. It's the first time he's been away from home
 without his dad or I there. I miss him!!! I thought it would be fun if he found this card 
on his pillow when he got home. I chose the sentiment "Happy Together" for two reasons,
 one because camping always coincides with family and usually we're "Happy" when we get "Together" 
and two, I will be "Happy" when I'm back together with my son.

Enough, cheese. Now it's time for the challenge. Head over to the Friday Mashup Blog and see what Summer inspires in you. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!


  1. Love this card- perfect summer theme! Hope your son enjoys camp and you make it through the week. My kids first time away at camp- I went as the Camp nurse so I could be there!

  2. Haha, I had to laugh at your comment about loving camping as a child but not necessarily as a mother. Beautiful card - I love the strips of embossed/patterned paper, reminds me of a beach and water! Sweet sentiment for the occasion as well :)
