If you go down to the woods today - for Daring Cardmakers

It's my turn to set the challenge over at Daring Cardmakers this week, and I chose a great outdoors theme, with the title 'if you go down to the woods today' - so think of country walks, picnics, nature trails and camping. Here is what I came up with, a little scene which needed a tiny pop of colour, so my tent is hand drawn. Since it's night time, the campers are obviously inside, warm in their sleeping bags. Mind you, if they had any sense they would be warm in their beds at home.......

Do pop over to see what the team have come up with for this challenge, and if you can join in, we would love to see your take.......

Whatever possessed me to think of this as a challenge theme - I have no clue. There is nobody in the world less likely to camp than me. I tried it once, when I was a teenager. We camped in a field in Wales. It poured with rain all night, I lay there clutching my cream coloured suede handbag to my chest, as protectively as if it was a new born baby. CREAM SUEDE! CAMPING! Was I crazy? Since then, if there isn't a solid roof over my head, and a nice clean surface to park my handbag, I prefer to stay at home


  1. Great card Enfys ... and a fabulous these for making those difficult "guy" cards (which I always struggle with). But I am with you 100% regarding my camping desires. If I can't take the Hilton, or Ritz, or some other posh hotel, with me to the camp site, then count me out. I'll stay home! "wink"

    1. whoops ... that should have said ... a fabulous "theme" for making those difficult guy cards. I blame that error on my crazy fingers. hehehe

  2. Your card is adorable! I was thinking of the Teddy Bear Picnic song when I started reading your post. I am with you on the camping idea; been there, done that, don't need to do it again! Thanks for the cute idea.

  3. Cute! Love the little tent - hope they're not attracting too many bugs with that light on!

    I loved reading your camping trip story. I would have done the same thing!! Very cute card, I could never enjoy sleeping in a tent is not for me!!!

  6. Cute card, the tent really does pop with that red color! Super cute, I'm not really a camper either, but got roped into going earlier this year with the grandkids :) Hubby tripped over a log in the dark and is still going through physical therapy after major surgery to repair a ten inch muscle rip :(

  7. What a romantic take on the theme! Love your background.


I love reading your comments, thank you for taking the time
