Flashback Friday card

The Flashback Friday crew is celebrating a big 20th challenge, with a big huge giveaway.  It's been on my to do to search back for a black and white card, but you know how life gets?  Anyway, here's a card I posted in June 2010 for a Card Patterns sketch.  If you read the original post you'll see that I was upcycling the patterned paper my mom bought for my younger's son's change table when he was born. 

And since the card has a trailer on it, why not share a couple of photos from our recent camping trip in Calistoga.  Our vintage trailer got a few looks amongst the parking lot of large RVs.


Thanks for looking... I'm having a day where I want to say thanks and love you to everyone I know... my sister was with a group in a back country skiing avalanche today, click here to read the article, and while she and her fiance are okay, it's so heartbreaking to think of her friends that she lost today.
