BugABoo AKVMenCamping Miss You Card

I'm back from a mini vacation to Rancho Cucamonga also know as Alta Loma, CA. Hubby's niece, 3rd oldest daughter of his youngest brother, got married. Hubby drove since airfare + luggage fees + all the other air fees were more expensive than gas. We stopped in Gallup, New Mexico on way there. I'll post a few photos w/ each blog post.
These photos are: driveby photos taken before windshield became bug splattered (one is of a car w/ FL license plates and 2 kayaks on the car w/ sign "Heading to San Diego for Nationals", AZ rock background photos of hubby & I, view from CA hotel & before wedding photos.

  8. First off, thanks for giving us a glimpse into your vacation! I'm a bit land-locked at the moment, so it was nice to travel vicariously through someone else. I enjoyed seeing the pictures and you and the hubs make a charming pair! I also liked your card so much and the happy camping vibe it had. I love how you added the twine and the campfire gave it the perfect pop of color. Thanks for sharing your adventure and your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
