I See the Mountains

I really do! Everyday I am lucky enough to see the mountains. I live in Denver, but just to the west are the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Each night the sunsets atop them. I love the mountains and it only takes about 25-30 minutes to get there from my house. Last weekend me and My Man took a quick drive to Empire Colorado.   I was craving a burger from Dairy King. It is a small lil restaurant that makes the best burgers and has the best ice cream. My sister mentioned they have awesome peach shakes when the Colorado peaches are in season, so I figured this was the perfect time to head over and try one. I am so glad we did! The drive was beautiful and the food was great. I had a regular cheeseburger with all the fixin's, My Man tried the buffalo burger and we shared fries. It was delicious. For dessert we each got a peach shake, all I could say is yum! I could see the ladies in the back cutting up the fresh peaches. They are perfect in the shake. This shake is spoon worthy due to the size of the peaches. It was worth the drive!

Our view heading into Empire, it was gloomy out and it eventually started to rain!

My picture does not do this shake justice, but I think if you look close you can see the peaches! Yes, I often travel with Batman, shhhh it's our secret.

The mountains inspired my card this week for the My Pumpkin Challenge. This month the challenge is "All About Shapes." I chose triangles, which makes some pretty simple paper mountains. I also used the red triangles that came in the kit to make some trees and highlighted the sun with lil triangle points. I know that bicyclists love riding in the mountains so I figured it was the perfect background for this card!

Show us what you have been creating! Share your ideas. The My Pumpkin Challenge is waiting for you!
