We went on the old Mackenzie Hwy. on Aug 16th. First day it was open this summer. It usually opens in May or June. Stopped at a little lake/campground on the east side of the summit. Very pretty, I thought I would take a picture, so walked to the end of the lake, through some grass. Boy, did I stir-up some mesquitos, fastest I have moved in a long time that was not at a run. By the time I got in the car I had 7 bites. Decided we would just go on to the Dee Wright Observatory. Here are some pictures. Some inside, looking out square holes or windows, at the surrounding mountains and a few pictures from the outside.
While the canner was rocking and steaming for 1 1/2 hours I made these cards.
I used Blue Ribbon paper pack, Indian Corn Blue Cardstock, Colonial White Cardstock.
Inks used: Outdoor Denim, Black
Accessories: Clear Buttons
Stamp Set: Nursery Bash

My daughters cat was trying to sneak up on a rabbit in our sideyard. She was doing good till I decided to take pictures and the dogs heard me go on the deck. The pic with her looking towards the camera was when she gave up with a disgusted look. You can tell in the pic that she got close.

CS: Barn Red, Colonial White, Desert Sand and Twilight.
Ink: Black, Twilight, Barn Red and Desert Sand.
Accessories: Natural Hemp, Liquid glass, Itty Bitty Brads in Black, Dry embosser.

I haven't had much time to do cards or scrapbooks. Here are 2 cards made from a new stamp set, a CTMH set, that is available in Sept.
I used Crystal Blue, Sunflower, Topiary and Black ink. White daisy textured cardstock and sponge daubers.
Hope you like them and Thanks for looking. Hopefully not so long between posts.
