Great Outdoors

I know I have been missing all week but those wonderful, sweet little snotty grandchildren of ours gave both my husband and me horrendous colds and I had absolutely no energy to craft.  I wish I could say that I am totally back to normal but the cold is hanging on.  I have improved enough to start crafting again.

The challenge this week at Sassy Cheryl's is called the Great Outdoors and Krafty Karen has a 100 Followers challenge where she wants you to create a card inspired by something you made previously. So, I decided to kill two birds with one stone and go with a Sassy Cheryl card.

This is the new card that I made:

This card that I made last fall is the one that I used for my inspiration:

I switched up the seasons, used the same image, roughly followed the original layout and did the distressing so now I have two cards I really like.

I am going to enter this new card in the following challenges:

Sassy Cheryl's - The Great Outdoors
