A Little Getaway

Hello!  So glad you stopped by today.  I have a new project to share with you that was inspired by a trip to the Oregon Coast last weekend.  The dogs and I traveled north and spent the weekend with a long-time friend.  It was wonderful to see her and catch up, in person, on what has been happening in our lives.  The original plan was to camp on the coast, but this time of the year is the best possible weather for the area and there were no openings in any of the pet-friendly yurts (year-round  universal recreational tent) so we opted to stay at her place and just make a day trip to Bandon on Saturday.  The weather was drop-dead gorgeous ---- sun shine and no wind!!!  The dogs had a ball, we indulged in the best cream puffs on earth from the Bandon Bakery, had fish and chips for lunch, cruised the beach looking for "stuff", caught some photos of the setting sun , then headed back to Roseburg.  Sunday morning was spent on one of the rivers east of Roseburg doing road cleanup with Francesca's rafting club.  Then it was homeward bound, tired but refreshed.

The card I have to show you is super simple, but I love the melding of the DP and the stamped grass.  I didn't stamp a greeting on the tag as I am not sure what I will use this card for.  I may even change out the tag before I decide to send it.  Who knows?

Burger LOVES the beach

Fries, ever the active puppy, found something in the sand

He didn't get what he was digging for, but he did get a sandy nose!

The fog bank rolling in didn't do much for the setting sun, but we got out our cameras anyway.

Thank you so much for stopping by More Paper Kisses and Inky Wishes.  Hugs, Shawna
