Summer Camp Happy Mail

I've managed to find a little time (between moving furniture around for the drywall guys and laundry) to stamp again!  It was a good way to end the day yesterday.

My daughter wanted a card to send to a friend that is away at camp and she needs to get it in the mailbox today, so I had to work quickly.  I decided one layer (goes with this Lawnscaping challenge) and to make it look like a postcard (goes kinda with this Simon Says Stamp challenge).

I used two Lawn Fawn sets for this one.  I was inspired by the book Toot & Puddle by Holly Hobbie.  There are great illustrations of scenes from each city Toot visits along with a postcard he writes to Puddle.  It is a favorite story in our house.  The only thing I wish I had done was to change the bell in the stamp to the paw print.  I just don't think fast enough late at night anymore!
