Vacation Time

My family and I are heading out on vacation.  I  have schedualled several posts for the next few weeks.  I am mailing the postcards before I leave, but I don't have any idea when they will be delivered.
We don't  look like this, it looks more like my cousin's family.  She has three younger children and does go to the cottage every summer.  I decided to send this along to her.

Sunflowers Make me Smile

I can't resist sending this giant sunflower card to my friend Patricia. 
 For years, her mother had a painting of sunflowers hanging in her kitchen. 
By a tangled route, that picture is now hanging in my house. Thank-you, I still love it.

Postcards are such fun to receive and even more fun to send.  For more postcard fun, be sure to visit Beth at The Best Hearts are Crunchy for her Postcard FriendShip Friday post.

Flowers for my Grandmother

Sending these gorgeous flowers to my grandmother.

My godfather's mother-in-law has moved to the same retirement home as my grandmother, 
 of course I am sending her a card as well.

Both cards are from the Mrs. Delany's Flowers postcard book.

The Calgary Stampede 2012

The Calgary Stampede ( celebrates it's 100 the anniversary this July. It is going to be quite the party. Each year the Stampede makes a beautiful cowboy or cowgirl stampede poster. The postcard is a sample of one from a couple of years back.
I look forward each year to seeing the newest design.
I sent this card to my parental unit in Ontario. They have always wanted to come out to Calgary for the event but have not made it yet.
I am looking forward to the 10 days of pretending to be a cowgirl. The city becomes decorated with hale bales and paintings of cowboy life on windows. Everyone I mean almost everyone dresses up in cowboy attire. We head out to bars/saloons for beers and barbeque's. There are pancake breakfasts everywhere.The main event is at the Stampede grounds where the Chuckwagon races and rodeo take place every night.It is a fun event.
If you haven't been you should put it on your list of things to do.
