Summer challenge

Hi Stampers!
Over at the SU-Only blog is a challenge for summer.  After 10 days of summer weather on the east coast I'm feeling it (here in the redwood forest, as I have said before, weather is subtle.  Your average day is 55, your hot day is 60, your cold day is 50, 'nuf said).  I even wore SANDALS last week!  When summer starts heating up, well, when it gets into June anyway, we leave the coast and  go camping.   Our family tradition is to go camping on the first Sunday after school gets out- we call it "overpack the car and go on a long, hot drive on a windy road"day, most everyone else calls it Father's Day.  I wonder why my husband is not usually his most chipper on his special day...
Anyway, camping is summer to me so here is my card:
It becomes more special when you see the inside:
I think I'm going to send this over to the SoShelli blog for her creative challenge as well
I'm going to miss the Under the Stars stamp set that I used for this card.  I also used Family Reunion and Teeny Tiny wishes.  I'm going to have to challenge myself to go a week without using Teeny Tiny wishes.  Do you have this set?  Well you should!  And if you need to order it right now you can go here.  It is clearly a good value.
My husband is a great dad and husband, even on overpack the car day, so I'm happy to make a special card just for him.
Thanks for stopping by!
