Wheels & S'mores in The Great Outdoors


I had to make Sneeq on the bike for John; when we first saw the Doodlefactory Great Outdoors one of the first thing he said was, the raccoon can fit on the bike! So here he is, of course his feet don't reach the pedals but that's o.k.! It totally reminds me of my first time riding a horse at Half Moon Bay in CA, my feet didn't reach the stirrups and they were adjusted the best they could be. Not a good idea, I was trudging along just fine until my horse decided it wanted to go faster & went down the cliff to the beach - practically the whole time I was fearing for my life thinking for sure I was going to fall off - the stirrups kind of serve an important purpose in that respect! I was SO happy to have not fallen but I'm sure if America's Funniest Home Videos was there filming I may have won some $.

p.s. John was not home when I was making my card - he informed me that the bike's front wheel should have been angled upward so Sneeq was really doing a wheelie. Oh well.

Who doesn't love a good s'more? They are so easy to make, all yummy & gooey when you roast your marshmallow just right and are the quintessential snack for the Great Outdoors! That's why I chose to make them the focus of this Starving Artistamps card to show you some of the many possibilities for this set. How cute is it that the Beaver Family-Belvedere the dad & Bink his son are out camping & enjoying themselves in front of a nice fire roasting marshmallows so they could make some s'mores?!
P.S. if you haven't checked out all the FUN Doodlefactory stamps/sentiments - go to Starving Artistamps and do so! If by chance these sets don't tickle your fancy, there are TONS of other styles to choose from {silhouettes, unique sentiments, backgrounds, etc! - the store is chock-full of stamping fun for EVERYONE!

Yay, Sneeq on the bike! I did make it so he would fit (not quite reaching the pedals, but it still works). Originally the deer was upright standing on two legs and she fit too, but she just looked too bizarre.

Oh Donna.......just look how cute you are!!! How adorable is that wheelie!! Tell John that if Sneeq can't reach the pedals, then he can't do a "real" wheelie either!!! ;) LOL And I LOVE the s'mores!!! That fire is just wonderful!!!!
