Hot Diggity Dog's Go Camping

I've always wanted a retro camper van , they are so cool! This stamp set "hot diggity dog" I bought for half price in the sale at my local craft shop, I put in a bag with some papers, shoved it in a draw, and promptly forgot about until my tidy up this morning.

I've coloured with promarkers, the paper is just dandy by echo park and I've add a sentiment and a few strips of washee tape. I've tried to get a retro look with the papers and colours but they play havoc with your eyes.
The shaped card is by craftwork cards.
I thought this card would be good for my my step fathers Birthday soon.

I've been to my cleaning job this morning, they are a lovely couple, but it's hard work, who needs the gymn 'I'm aching already, totally unfit.
happy crafting. janex

One of our boys had a VW camper van once, the idea was for his surfing trips to the coast. He bought it from a vicar so we felt confident there would be no problems - how wrong we were, it spent more time in our card park than down at the Cornish coast.

Anyhow, you have made a lovely bright card with the image which seems very fitting with the camper van concept.
