Now those flames are "in tents", aren't they?  Sorry about that folks, but it took me a little while to get that pun.  I felt like a dunce when I finally did!  Anyhow, I love the sentiment.  It's really true, especially for our family.  I went camping with my family in a motor home as a child.  As an adult, my husband (boyfriend then) introduced me to backpacking.  It was quite a change, but one I was easily able to embrace.  Now that we have a young child, we have a small tent trailer and still rough it quite a bit!  My hubby hasn't seen this card yet, but I'm sure he'll love it!

Toni,
Wonderful card very CAS. And, your card on the MFP blog is awesome - made me laugh with the moose half in/out of th tent - perfect!

Angie said...

Your fire is IN TENTS!!! Love the gorgeous colors. I like how you stamped the sentiment all around the card! Very cool look!!! We camped when I was a child too but always in tents. Then I backpacked with DH and since kids we bought a small pop up. Now that our son is 6'5" and our daughter is almost as tall as I am at 5'10"...we have outgrown our pop up and are back to a tent again! This was a fun set and makes me want to go out for the weekend!!! You did a terrific job!
