Tuesday already....

Hello and Good morning..
I just love these long weekends an extra day to enjoy with
my husband..   But now it's Tuesday and  I will be a day off
all week.   I think I can handle that!  The extra day is well worth it!

We had the most wonderful weekend out at the lake.
I don't know what it is but when we go camping the
food always taste better..  And my favorite part is to sit
around the campfire roasting marshmallows .  My husband always
says I'm crazy but I just love to eat them burnt black..



We took long strolls around the campground and we also took
a couple of long Bike rides.  I defienitly know I am out of shape
cause I had to keep stopping every ten minutes to catch my breath.



Well like I said it is Tuesday and that means it time to share
with you what I made for City Crafters Challenge Blog.




Your truly is hosting this week!  So I thought it would be fun
to make a project using all natural colors.. 




When I think of  natural colors my mind always thinks
Vintage for some reason..


So I made this vintage style tag.  It was so much fun putting this
Together..    I just love this image made from Graphic 45..  




So how do you like my Vintage style tag?
 I think it is dreamy!!


To get all the details on this challenge you can hop over
to City Crafters Challenge Blog..  I do hope you play along with us..



I just want to say THANK YOU so much for
stopping by.  And thanks so much for all your kind
comments..  They mean so much to me!!

Hugs, Linda

Your camping weekend sounds fantastic--we love our campfires and marshmallows, too! I agree--the food always tastes better when camping (even if it's coming from cans and boxes, which for us is almost all the time!). Love that pretty vintage card you created. It's so lovely!

Camping and roasting marshmallows sounds like so much fun...except I like my marshmallows lightly toasted, but all gooey inside. :)

Deanna said...

I totally agree with you about food tasting better outdoors, maybe we just work up a better appetite and I too love a little burnt marshmallow, gives it that added touch. Your tag is definitely a fav with me. Love all that vintage look. Terrific!!

Catherine said...

I'm glad you had a nice long weekend with hubby! Time at the lake would be wonderful. Wayne and I went to the lake too. But ours was frozen over and it was too cold to camp out! Haha! Not that I go camping... that's a little too 'ruffing it' for me. Even if I had a big 5th wheel trailer. And I love my marshmallows burnt too! And don't mind some burnt on my toast or my popcorn. :)

Happy Thursday Linda!
xo Catherine
