The theme over at Crafty Gals Corner this week is: The great outdoors!
I don't want to say I'm a city girl, because that's probably the farthest thing from the truth, but I will say I am a creature of material comforts.
I actually grew up on a small hobby farm on 40 acres in Minnesota. In my adult life, however, I moved to the "big city" (read 50,000 people - yes... that's big to me) and I've stuck ever since. I enjoy riding bike, and rollerblading along the river paths, but camping? Count me out.
So when thinking about the great outdoors and going through the images over at Beccy's Place, I came across this image called Old Mailbox. And I just fell in love.
And I just feel at home.
As I was creating this card, those were the thoughts I had in my head. This is WHY I love crafting so much. You can really put a lot of yourself into a creation and your artwork can really express who you are as a person, even though nobody else may ever know it.
So that's my Great Outdoors story. Thanks for listening!
I'm going to enter my card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday: For the Love of Plants
Hiding in My Craft Room - Summer colors
Just Us Girls - Summer
Anywho - back to the challenge. How do you interpret the Great Outdoors? Come on over to Crafty Gals Corner and show us!
