Summer Picnics and Camping

     Did you know that campouts are really just extended picnics?  Or maybe it's that a picnic is just a very brief campout.  Either way, they both involve a trip outside, something that seems to be lacking in this day and age of computers, blogs, GameBoys, Nintendos, I-Pads, Kindles, and all our other uber electronics.  Even when we do get outside, most of our picnics or campouts still include a smart phone filled with games, e-mail, and text messages.  When was the last time you really got away from it all without taking it all with you?

     Maybe this new "Great Outdoors" set from Deedee's Digis will inspire you.  :-D  I love the sentiment, especially with the double meaning of a possible cat box.  lol


     All the Great Outdoors set needs is a picnic basket and few ants.  :-D  Very simple card with no real explanation needed.  Besides, I'm tired from writing and scheduling posts and need a break so this post will be really short.

     Challenges:
613 Avenue Create -- A/G
Addicted to Stamps -- Outdoors
Animal Friends -- Hobbies (camping)
Aud Sentiments -- Any sentiment for a guy
Brown Sugar -- Summer
Delightful Challenges -- Tickled pink
Digi Haven -- Picnic (If my explanation above doesn't count, please remove my entry.)
Paper Shelter -- Summer
Sentimental Sundays -- Animals
Time Out -- Summer w/ optional twist of flowers (mine are in the dp, with the card carefully designed so they would show.)

     Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Here's a photo of the entire set.

You are so right- I have my phone with me everywhere. WE went to my parents a few weeks ago, and I left my computer at home, but was checking my emails and Facebook on it....kinda cheating! LOVE the sweet image and the cording with wrapped paper is a cool accent!

Adorable card! I love that cat in the tent. So cute. I'll check with our team to see if this is a picnic for our challenge. You won't have to remove it though if they rule that it's not, just won't be eligible for the prize and top three. But it a really cute card and thank you so much for sharing it with us at Digi Haven!
