I seem to be on a woodsy-themed kick this week! It’s just that the Lovely as a Tree set is so nice to work with – especially the pine tree and the little pine cone bough, which appear to be my go-to sets. And the sentiments and flowers in Cottage Greetings complemented the Lovely as a Tree perfectly on this card.
My friend’s birthday is next week. I’ve known her since we were both riding staff counselors at Girl Scout camp sometime back in the Dark Ages. We were in college in CO and spent two summers working in the mountains with horses and kids. We had more fun than I can possibly tell you. And we became the very closest of friends. We don’t get to see each other a lot these days, nor do we talk on the phone much. But, when we have a chance to be in the same spot – it’s like we were never apart. Do you folks have friends like that? The friends that just….are. No work or effort required. Being friends is just as easy as breathing? I surely hope that you do!
So, anyway – she’s a Colorado mountain girl, and I wanted to make a card that honored her love of the Rockies. My head-picture was of a mountain meadow at twilight – just like the one where our camp horses were pastured at night…..take a look-see:
