Christmas Card with the October Stamp of the Month and MONTANA!

This card is made with the awesome October Stamp of the Month which, although valued at $17.95, can be yours for only $5 with a $50 order this month! Order on my website anytime! I'll share a scan of the stamp set, a detail shot of the card, and my supply list at the end of this post. First, I've just got to share a little bit of what I was up to this weekend.

What an amazing few days!  Dan, Dawson and I drove to Montana on Friday morning. Easton and the Southern Utah University Thunderbirds were playing at the University of Montana Griz on Saturday afternoon.  Unfortunately Tannon had to work and couldn't go and, of course Kori and Rick and their family couldn't make it from Chicago.  So we, the three musketeers went anyway. 

Dan and I have some dear friends that we went to college with and that Dan played college football with who live about an hour outside of Missoula, Montana in a little town called Drummond.  They invited us to stay with them and treated us like royalty, from the delicious food to the beautiful rooms we stayed in at their home. I am so mad I didn't get some pictures of their gorgegous home and all of their amazing land, but we did get a couple of photos of signs in Drummond (population about 300) that made us giggle.  Here you go:

Usually open?  Too funny!

Used Cow Lot.  For real?
Spending time with our friends was an added bonus to our trip for the football game!  The University of Montana is a perennially ranked FCS team. They have never lost back to back games in their home stadium in Missoula since it was built in 1986.  We put an end to that record!  The T-Birds beat the Griz 30-20 in their sold out (27,000 fans) stadium.  Yes, it felt good!  Easton had 5 catches for 59 yards. Yay, Easton!  Yay, T-birds! Here are a few shots from the game:

Darn that guy in the hood. He moved just as I took this picture and covered up cute Tristan. This is part of the Dahl family, the friends we stayed with.

Before the game as the military brought the flag on the field for the National Anthem. Yep, I cry every time.  There was lots of pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Even the band wore pink feathers on their hats.

There was a show of LOTS of motorcycles and mini-cars honoring breast cancer survivors before the game. Very cool!

What a wonderful weekend!
