S'mores Birthday

Happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here. Yeah! My favorite time of the week is Friday at 5p.m. I have the entire weekend to look forward to. This weekend Tom's parents will be with us so I'm sure we will be out at Baby Creek (our little getaway place) for the entire weekend. And Mother's Day continues this weekend because my oldest son Dan will be flying in from Utah. I haven't seen him since Christmas so I'm looking forward to his visit. He flies in on Friday but he's spending Friday and Saturday with some buddies at his alma mater and Sunday he will come to visit us and stay until his plane leaves on Monday. So I took Monday off next week so I'd have the day to spend with Dan while he's here. So a three-day weekend ahead! WooHoo!
I needed a quick birthday card again since I was a little late in sending to my BIL. So I came up with a fast guy card last night.
This is a Gina K stamp set created by Theresa Momber called Happy Camper. Since my kids were all in Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts this set has gotten used quite  a bit (just not recently). I love the sign that you can put different greetings into. I colored the images with Kohinoor pencils and odorless mineral spirits. On the bottom panel I first stamped the sentiment and then ran the paper through my Grand Calibur using the Victoria Cuttlebug folder. Pretty simple.
I'm entering these challenges:
Hope you have the most wonderful weekend. I'll be working on more day camp crafts this weekend. I can't believe we are only about a month away from day camp. Yikes! Take care!

Beautiful card and great use of the embossing folder to emulate grass, at least that is what I see when I view your lovely card. I love that the sentiment is spread out over two places on your card.
