The Sisterhood of the Travellling Teapotters are camping out this week. This great challenge is for David, introduced to us by Sylvia (sillyfilly).
Allow me to set the scene. Pryce Pearson III of "THE Pearsons" and his unlikely companion Johnny are camping out at a brand new gold course about to open. The sisterhood are camping on the other side of the 18th fairway. The "girls" don't feature in this card, but I thought we were worth a mention.
Johnny and his trusty dog Benji-boy love camping and sleeping rough out under the stars. Pryce Pearson III is terribly pampered, the roughest he has slept is under 500 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, instead of the usual 1000 count.
It was agreed that a Plan B was needed. Whilst camping out was on PP the 3rds bucket list, there was some real doubt that he could actually do it. A decision was made to load up Johnnys old jalope with all their gear and set up a camp site behind the second fairway, and PPIII would take his sports car and make a reservation at the Royal Palm resort, just in case .
Now to the card.....oh my gosh, if you knew how long it took for me to make this work I think you would boot me out of the Sisterhood. Last week we established I am not an engineer, well we can add "tent maker" to that list too. This card started out as a double side step, when trimming the tent I cut half the card off, oops LOL. To give the card some strength and length, I added a fence (the fence is attached to acetate to give it strength). Most of the papers are Graphic45. In the background you can just see Johnnys old jalope (TH stamp) a die cut tree and a very odd looking tent. The grass is made with Martha Stewart fringe scissors, then given a bit of a trim.
Thanks for looking ladies. I'm off to post this to David now.

Thud...just picked my chin up off the floor. Look at all the details on your card Susie. I bet it did take a lot of time. This will be so treasured. I especially love the old jalopy!! Wish I had one. Thanks so much for taking your time and your art to share with others. This card will be loved.

Gosh, Susie, your creations are always so amazing. Love, love how you've used these vintage images. Every element has purpose and meaning. A real piece of artwork that is so much fun to look at. (And don't tell the other sisters, but I too would be camped out at the Royal Palm Resort. If I don't have a plug for my hairdryer, I'm not a happy camper).
