MFP Blog Hop Day 2 - In Tents

May Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

Marsh Birds

In Tents

I used to love camping when I was a girl guide but these days I like my creature comforts!  The closest thing I will get to camping this year is staying in a log cabin in Oregon and I will take plenty of bug repellent as they find me "sweet meat".

I have made two cards with today's set and I know the destination for one of these - this first one  - a twisted easel card where I also used the cabin from the set On The Fly
The second card uses some die cut cardboard packaging rubbed with some distress inks and some added "mud" on my centre strip.  This one I will just add to my box for now.  Now please hop on to see whether AnJenic is a happy camper.
