Good mornings friends! There's a new challenge at Drunken Stampers: #139 Place - A campsite. You can use a campsite as your inspiration, or the prompts, in this case woodgrain or wooden elements. You can even go all cray cray and do BOTH!


 It's not my week to play, Team Yellow Canaries is up this week to inspire you, but I still wanted to have some fun with this challenge. I think I pulled it off. What do you think?:

Here's the inside:

Guess who's stamps I used?!! LOL! So, I made a scene. Lots of trees, some rolling hills, a tent in the distance, and a deer roasting marshmallows over a campfire. Hey, it can happen! Lots of fussy cutting on this one. Added some shading to the trees and deer. I just love how this came out!

I'm going to enter this for #116: For the Boys challenge at Shopping Our Stash and also for Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you not only check out the Drunken Stampers Campsite challenge, but play along as well!
