Go to your happy place




Every year I get away to the Pocono mountains in Pennsylvania  for a crafty weekend of stamping, good food and good times with my best buddies. My buddy Judy aka "the angel" has a house in the "Nos" right on a gorgeous lake. Every year the weekend seems to grow and this year all of us will be there.

To get everyone psyched, I will be sending out this card. My card reminds me of one of the views from the porch.
My card fit into three challenges so I am submitting this to Time Out Challenges where the challenge  is:
'Holidays with the Optional Twist of No Stamping' 
(stamped sentiments allowed)
 I am submitting it to my friend Kylie's Happy Little Stamper CAS challenge   
where the challenge is:


I am also sending this out to a new challenge to me: The Sisterhood of Crafters

CLOSE TO NATURE
What does that mean to you?  
This is a perfect challenge since that's what we have going in to the NO's- a sisterhood of crafters and the theme couldn't be better!!!

I used the British view of holiday- our idea of a vacation here in the states.

The inside of the card says "go to your happy place". We have a running theme of the Nos being our happy place so this card is perfect for our upcoming holiday.
 The masking was a bit tricky and took several tries to get the masking inside to line up with the outside diecut window.
Check out both of these fun challenges and join in!!
