Hello, Friends and Happy Hump Day! We are in the middle of our week and I am looking forward to the weekend already. I start some vacation time from work on Friday through all next week. I hope to be spending some of that time in my craft studio.
On Friday, my DH and I are making a trip to Canon City in Colorado to look at Mustangs up for adoption through the WHIP program. In order to get our adoption application approved we need to put new fencing around our corral as the current one is 4 inches short of their standard requirements. Ugh…4 inches! However, our burro corral is at the 5 foot requirement but it needs a new gate. So we will be installing that this evening. Once the horses are gentled in their new home we can put them in the horse corral which is 3 times the size of the burro corral. I hope to post some photos when we are accepted so if you are a horse love stay tuned.
I have a new card to share and post for some challenges today. I made this a few months ago but never put it on my blog. I have several cards that have not been posted but sometimes writing the post seems like such a chore since that is what I do at my J-O-B all day…write.
This card features an older Magnolia stamp, Sitting Summer Tilda and I masked her on the Spring Fence. I colored my image with Copics and added Turquoise Stickles to the polka dots of her shirt, heart patch and hair bow. I also gave her wings a coat of Stardust Stickles. The DPs are from Heidi Grace and cardstock is from Bazzill. I kept the design very simple using my Old Swedish Lace die cut at the top and bottom edge, a few flowers, and satin ribbon with a bow.
I added my “You are my best friend” Magnolia sentiment, curled for dimension with light turquoise pearls at each end. Here’s a close up shot of Tilda. I imagine that she is sitting on her fence watching the horses play in the pasture.
The inside of my card has similar elements from the front for both panels. It’s not often that I decorate both panels of the inside but I really love these papers.
Cardstock – Bazzill
DPs – Heidi Grace
Flowers – WOC; Prima
Dies/Punches – Magnolia
Stickles – Ranger
Ribbon – The Ribbon Spot
Pearls – Hero Arts
I’m entering this card in the following Challenges:
Magnolia Stamp Lovers – Sugar, Tilda only
Totally Tilda – Tilda and Magnolia Sentiment
Simon Says Stamp – Anything Goes
Thanks for popping in to visit and have a great week…
