Trucks and Grand Tetons Part 3

My Great nephew has turned 16 and this is the card I sent to him, decided to go sepia tones with this one. I think this is the second time I have used this truck for my great nephews that have turned 16.

I am sharing my post today with Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration Link up .  She mentioned this is the last one she will be doing for a couple of weeks, so head on over and see what everyone is up to.

Now on to our last bit of our trip to the Grand Tetons.
This first picture is to show you the view we had for our lunch that day, the day before in Yellowstone we had lunch at a River side picnic area, in the Grand Tetons the picnic area was on the lake.


My husband took video of this little guy and was able to freeze this frame so I could share this picture of him, he was just too cute sneaking all around and watching us.


The mountains are quite hazy here but I liked this shot of the river going through the trees and the mountains in the background.


Through Stephanie's link up party I have gone to a few blogs that do links to fences in their posts, and thought they might like to see this fence.


I have a few shots after we left the park and maybe I will share them next time.
Hope your week is off to a good start, yesterday my hubby and I spent the day in St. Louis at the Botanical garden, I haven't had a chance to see how the pictures turned out, if I was able to get some good ones I will share in a later post.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and say Hello, so good to hear from you,

Connie

Connie, what a great masculine card for your great nephew...he's going to love this "tough" truck and the cute sentiment. And oh my, I continue to delight in seeing your amazing photos from your trip. What beauty! And how precious that you were able to capture that little chipmunk...he's so precious! Hugs!

Hi Connie, once again another wonderful and one of a kind card. You could design for a card company my friend.
Love the amazing photos you have been sharing of your trip. Hope you captured some good ones from the gardens too.
Hugs, cm

Little chipmunk wins for cuteness :)

The perfect card for a 16 year old boy. Looks like a great set all around. I can see why you needed a second share for the Tetons photos. These are gorgeous! I've seen some of those Good Fences posts and I really enjoy them.

You could start you own card company, Connie, you just keep on creating such lovely and original cards. This is a very cool card for a teenage boy. Oh my goodness, what a glorious place to have a holiday. The Grand Tetons are spectacular.

It would be sad to say goodbye to such a beautiful place. Love your card! I've never used eyelets on my cards because I'm not quite sure how. (I have some but need to look it up.)

The card is great and perfect for a 16th year old teen! I'm blessed in having mostly boys for nephews and I always find it so hard to make cards for them.

The pictures of the Tetons are beautiful...it looks so peaceful and the air clean and crisp!!!
