HAY THERE IT'S PASTURE BIRTHDAY Card - Travel Dest Dude Ranch - Lawn Fawn HayThere

Used Dude Ranch Theme to make for a Travel Destination Belated Birthday Card. 

When daughter was younger we spent a wk at a Dude Ranch in Colorado. We were each assigned a horse that we rode every day and in the end participated in a Rodeo. We stayed in a 2 story cabin that was made for many more occupants than just us 3 but we were the only ones in that cabin which had a washer & dryer. All meals (wonderful food, not hot dogs & beans, the owner's wife was the main chef and she was awesome) were served in the dining hall except for the one day that we had Bison (first time I had had Bison and liked) burgers outside. In the photo on left myself & hubby on horses crossing the stream (this day was photo day and it was lightly raining so we had slickers on) and in the photo with hubby our cabin is in the background. In photo on right you can see me on horse at top of a hilly area that hubby photographed (do not have hubby's photo here but yes I photographed him on his horse). Daughter was in a different horse riding group with younger ones her age.

  1. What a cool card - and what a nice time that was in Colorado - we traveled there when my son was 16 - he wanted to ride a horse so we scheduled an all day event for him - there were other activities other than his horse ride - he had a marvelous time

  2. Adorable card! Looks like you all had a lot of fun! The owl graduation card is Silhouette file #126152. I also have a Cricut but haven't used it in several years. I really need to use it!
    Have a great day!
