DS4J World Card Making Day Blog Hop

Welcome to Digistamps4Joy’s Country themed Blog Hop running from 5-8 October 2013 to celebrate World Card Making Day on the 5th October.You have reached Charlene’s Blog in the Fraser Valley in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
 If you have come here from the wonderfully talented Berni’s Blog, then you are on the right track. If you are just dropping in and stumbled onto this posting you can either continue on from here and follow through until you get back here or go back and start at the MainDS4J Blog and follow through until you get to Ursula’s blog.  But don’t miss out on any of the stops as there is an incredible surprise for all of those that finish the hop. So grab your favourite beverage, pull up a chair and enjoy the ride as we take you on a trip around the world in 17 hops!

Although Canada is known as “The Great White North”, we have some of the most incredible scenery and areas to camp in, especially here on the West Coast (but of course I’m biased because I live here lol). You will find us camping in the spring, summer, winter and fall. So of course I just had to make a card about one of my favourite past times while camping...roasting marshmellows over an open fire!

I used 2 different images from Digistamps4Joy for my card, Misteri Toasting Marshmellows and Camp Time. I coloured them with my Crayola Pencil Crayons and oms. 

Now for the Prizes….
Each individual blog along the way has used an image that you can win. Mine is Misteri Toasting Marshmellows.
And if you remember, at the beginning I mentioned a surprise if you finished the blog hop? Well, each one of us has a letter to share with you. And these letters when put together into a quote will give you your chance at a WHOPPING $30 PRIZE!!! Yup…you read that right. Margy is offering a $30 Gift Voucher for you to pick up your favourite images from DS4J! How totally awesome is that? Not only do you get the chance to win an image from any of the stops along the way, but you also have a chance at winning this major prize at the end. So before I forget, my letter is

Wow what a stunning piece of the world you have there, love your interpretation of the theme, camping in winter sounds far too harsh for me :-), but then I am a home comfort kinda girl
