When life gives you lemons...

Good Morning! Hope you are all doing well.
I'm here to share a card I made last night. I belong to a little card club here in the area and we meet twice a month. At each meeting we all bring a card to share, then we draw one person's name and they win all of the cards. Works out pretty good, unless you aren't particularly lucky. Lol
My daughter DRAGGED me to the craft store yesterday. (Woe, is me...) While I  was wandering the aisles aimlessly I saw this paper and thought of lemons. My mind started wandering into my crafty stash to TRY and remember if I still had this little Quickutz  "Citrus Slice" die. I wasn't sure, but I bought the paper anyway. Better safe than sorry...RIGHT?
I kept this one clean and simple (totally NOT me ). Hope you like it. 
Inside: tell your friends to bring salt and tequila!

Happy crafting y'all!!

Paper: Recollections - Yellow Gray Plaid 
Accessories: Quickutz - Citrus Slice, Sizzix - Swiss Dots embossing folder

Happy Campers!

Good Morning Blog Land!
This past weekend was all about camping for us at the Tidwell house. 

First of all, my boss' daughters are at camp this week and he asked me to make them both a card. One was having a Birthday too, so I made one of them for both occasions. I used my "Happy Camper" Cricut cartridge to cut out these cute 2 layer tents.

This is the inside...

and the most fun part of the weekend....

We drove to NC to pick up our new toy! The kids are getting older and it's time for me and the Hubby to take some weekend trips and explore a little. This little camper is so cozy. Can't wait to start hitting the road.
