We went away camping the week before last, first time for 5 years, and really enjoyed it. Our daughter Tracy and family came with us, we were near Matlock in Derbyshire, and our other daughter and grandson came to visit for a day, they live in Birmingham, so not too far to travel. The only downside was I got some terrible bites on my legs,  which were quite painful, why is it always me that gets bitten?I must be tasty. Anyway I have finally made a card, always takes me a while to find my mojo when i've been away, and here it is                                                             
It's a LOTV image, coloured with copics
Flowers from  Wild Orchid crafts
Sentiment  MCS CD
and I think the backing paper was a freebie with a mag.
I am entering it in the following challenges

Lotv challenge  Roses

Divas by Design  Summer
