The mountains called....

So recently, I went on a trip with my best girl friends.  I realized that other than my family, there are only 2 things I need.  My best girl friends....and the mountains.  I was born and raised in Colorado and wish everyday to move back, but the one thing that saves me is a good trip to the mountains.  And that is what we did.  We packed up and headed west and had a wonderful time. The weather was amazing.  It was so peaceful and, of course, the mountains are the best place to reset.

 (If you had asked me 2 weeks before this trip, I may have said all the same things about the ocean....because we also went on a cruise and laying on the beach in the Bahamas was amazing too.)

But now I am back from my travels and needed to send some thank you cards to my friends, when I just stumbled upon these Lawn Fawn Mountain dies and HAD TO HAVE THEM.  Right?


I used the Clarity Stencil Brushes to create that soft sky using the distress ink, Peacock Feathers.  Blending some Abandoned Coral, gave me a fun ombre, sort of cloudy look, to the sentiment dies.  And of course, those adorable stitched mountains and the grass, all from Lawn Fawn....Kelly A, I could hug you...are just the most adorable dies ever.  


These cards were super easy to mass produce.  I just cut the all the dies, blended all the sky and finished them all of with a static cloud from Lil Inkers.  


I haven't spent much time in this craft room lately because of the traveling, but now we are home for awhile.  And its like "feels like" 109 out side right now....so I am guessing this craft room is going to get a good cleaning and I might finally have some time to make some more cards.

So that is it for today.  Thanks so much for checking back in with me.  I appreciate all the comments and visits! Have a great weekend!
