California, Here I Come!

Well, I'm off to visit my sister and mother for a few days, leaving in an hour and a half.    Can't believe how much I have left to do, but of course, my crafting is a priority, and I want to post my latest project.  Hate to have anyone think I haven't been doing anything!  Oh, after I return, I have just enough time to do laundry and pack the camper because we're heading to Glacier National Park to meet our daughter.  We'll enjoy seeing other family also as my husband's brother and his wife are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary while we are there.  The kids are throwing a party.  Lucky for us!

I've been making popsicles!  Just like everyone else, but mine are way lower in calories...
 I used my Silhouette SD and the Pretty Pops cutting files from Lettering Delights.  Aren't they cute?
 Just had to include a close up of the ladybug.  Don't have any idea what she's doing on my popsicle, but she is cute!
 I love Stickles (if you've been following me long you know that I'm a Stickles-aholic).  I was hoping that this would give a frosty look?
 One more shot of the two, can't seem to decide which I like the most.  Guess I'll have to make one or two more of the 20 or so in the set.  They are really fun to work with.
Now, unrelated to this.  My blog title has been Lost in Montana and Loving It since I started blogging, so I really had to laugh when I caught an ad on tv the other day for Travel Montana, our official state invitation to the rest of you.  This is their big thing for 2012:

 So I'm doing my part, sharing the invitation with all of you.  Really we don't want everyone to stay forever.  Montana has (finally) reached 1,000,000 people, which is plenty, thank you!  But we love to show off.  If you have ever wanted to see our Big Sky (which is really wide and gorgeous) or the wide open spaces or the emptiness of the eastern part of the state or camping in my much-loved Glacier National Park, this would be a great year to visit.  

Have a great day, and I'll be seeing you on YOUR blogs as time permits.  Back in July...

Sassy Summer

Isn't this a cutie?  She came from CDAC and was drawn by Jen Leeflang of ABC-Art, Bellydancing & Crafting.  She's one of my all-time favorites.  She just seems so summery!!!  The flower paper comes from a DCWV mat stack, Citrus, the rest, including embellishments, are all from my stash.

I've had a lot of comments in the past several weeks.  Thanks to all of you!  It is lots of fun to share with others who make cards and I appreciate each of you.  I see that  somehow I have acquired 150 followers.  I will have to come up with some blog candy, but it will probably in July since I will be out of town for about 2 weeks.  Time to visit my sister, hurray!

I'm entering it in these challenges:
Always Crafting
Make It Monday

Thanks for visiting me, hope you enjoyed my card.
