Montana



This card I'm showing today is a card I made for my grandparents. We had a family reunion at their cabin in Montana over the Fourth of July. Montana is an absolutely beautiful place, so green and so much of it just left untouched. My brother saw a black bear while going for a walk in the morning! We saw a bunch of deer, and some antelope and elk as well.







Here are a couple of pictures I took of the property that is surrounding my grandparents, isn't it amazing? And I had to throw in a picture of my niece, cuteness herself:-) She was standing cautiously back protecting her 'special puppy' while we were petting the neighbors horses. Her name is Madeline Sophia, and yes, I named Sophia after her!:-) It was so nice to be there and to just completely relax. There is no cell phone reception and no internet connection, it was bliss!lol I sent this card with Howdy Girlfriend Sophia on it to them to say thank you for letting us all take over their cabin for a couple of weeks. I think this image couldn't have been more perfect for them. I paper pieced Sophia's bandana and skirt with some paper I bought from Target and for the denim part of the skirt, I scanned in a pair of REALLY old jeans and printed it out and used it for my dp! I really like the effect of it:-) Am heading to a cousin's wedding today and have a bunch of cleaning to do before we take off, hope you all have a fun and relaxing weekend!

so sweet, Joni! clever to scan your jeans for your homemade paper (looks like the real thing) and how precious is your niece? I bet it was bliss being out there, hard to imagine days without modern technology but we were there at certain points in our lives!
