Bottom: 'Looks like Christmas!' Deer nibbling the new growth along the road.

Tidbit: At 7,980 feet, Mount Olympus is the highest peak
in Olympic National Park and has the third largest
glacial system in the contiguous U.S.
|Even though there was snow everywhere, it was a beautiful day at the crest.|
My mother wanted to take in the sun so I attempted to wheel her up the path,
but alas we only made it a short distance. We saw two guys strapping on
skis for a back-woods downhill adventure. Woo hoo!!
|This is what Hurricane Ridge looks like in July and August - wild flowers replace the snow!|
Tidbit: 95 percent of Olympic National Park is designated as Wilderness.
|The flower was created using Papertrey Ink's Large Scalloped Border die|
and muslin fabric. Papertrey Ink's vintage buttons were added to finish the flower.
|Papertrey Ink's Fillable Frames #9 Stamp Set and coordinating die|
was used to create this tag. I embossed the tag using the die and
then trimmed it out with scissors.
Sentiment: Papertrey Ink Make A Wish stamp set.
|Coordinating scrap paper was layered and the stitched around the border|
for effect. A muslin ruffle, rick-rack and angora yarn were added
to finish the effect. The panel was then adhered to the front of
a Papertrey Ink scored notecard.
