Slow Down, you're not as young as you used to be...

Hello! I don't have a flashback for you today, but I do have a fun little card!  

We have been trying out our 'new to us' camper this week at one of the local campgrounds.  We took a little break to come home to do laundry and buy more food for the weekend.  The girls are having friends join us tonight, so I'm sure we'll need more snacks!! I decided to check in and realized I didn't have a post set for today (and that I forgot to do my ABAC week 1 post... sorry...), so I'm sharing a card that I made for my nephew, Eric.  He attended college with help of a track scholarship, and now has a coaching position at a college in Wisconsin.  Now that he's approaching his 30's (gasp!), we tease him a lot about the fact that he doesn't run quite as fast and jump as high as he used to, so when I saw this cute guy at Doctor Digi's (Thanks, Lisa M!!), I had to buy him!!

The sentiment is from a stamp I found in the bargain bin at Michael's.  It has a snail carrying a gift on it's shell, but I chose to only color the sentiment. Thought it went quite well with Mr. Dunderton jogging along!

Well, that's it for me today! I'm off to Wal-Mart to get more supplies and then back into the semi-wilderness of the campground!  Be sure to stop by Anything But a Card challenges and check out our challenge, Getting Messy! I'll be sharing my project on Sunday, if Blogger cooperates...

Have a wonderful weekend, and happy crafting!!

  5. Fantastic! I think the sentiment works brilliantly with your image. Just popped by to say hello and goodbye for a bit, I'm giving up crafting for the time being. Hopefully I'll be back one day and you'll still be around blogland when I do! Thanks for all the support you gave my crafty endeavours.

  6. What a fun card for your nephew ! Enjoy the great outdoors in your new camper !
