This is so adorable Cathy!! I remember the times of camping and sleeping outdoors with great fondness. There is just something so special about sleeping under that vast sky of stars. I'm sure your friend will love receiving this and remembering the times you shared.

Absolutely ADORABLE! Great image, coloring, drawing, details ... I just love this card, Cathy! :) What a great way to capture such a fond memory and share it w/your good friend who probably needs some cheering up.

Super sweet card and story! She will love this! Even in my younger days I would be too scared to sleep outside in CO! There are BEARS and MOUNTAIN LIONS not to mention all the creepy crawly bugs and snakes! Yeah my idea of camping would be at a lodge in the mountains! I need doors, walls, a bed, and a bath! I'm such a girly girl! But I do love looking up at the night sky and seeing all the stars! I see the little dipper all the time! :D

Love, love this, Cathy. Look at you with your dog tucked in beside you, enjoying the starry night. The French expression for sleeping outdoors in the open is "to sleep with/under (the actual preposition normally translates as at, but it doesn't work in English!) the beautiful stars" and you have so totally captured this here. Brings back memories for me too of sleeping out under the stars in the South of France. It would never get warm enough here, LOL. I'm glad the conversation with your friend sparked with the challenge to create such a sweet meaningful card.
