Horse and poppies



Hello Everyone...............guess where your wet weather has gone...go on....guess!!...Yes, we have it...3 days and nights non stop...am building an ark as we speak...it is bedlam through the day, getting in and out of the car, getting to the eldery, who have news papers on the floor, or take your shoes off and wander round in soggy socks.....my hair is so frizzy and poofy now, I can hardly fit through door ways..but it was needed badly, so cannot complain too much.

Have a card to share with you, just a simple one for my G/daughter who loves horses and this freebie popped up on SPYDER'S BLOG  and I thought of my G/daughter who is having her 10th Birthday on Saturday....a bit of a tom boy, no flowers your foo foo for this one.


A cute horse grazing in a field of poppies...well, the poppies are the background papers really, from Authentique 'gathering'....but you get the idea.



Inked the sky with sponges and SU bashful blue ink....the rest coloured with Faber Castell pencils.

And the horse is done pale as she has her own horse in similar colours..palamino, I think.


I love this fence die so much and I'm enclined to use it whenever I can, but this time, cut it out on wood grain papers from Authentique 'Dolled up'....the inside decorated too, but no sentiment yet, so it looks a bit plain....but going to put her name across the front of the card with chipboard letters....

Going to enter this in a challenge at Floral fantasies   [poppies]

Thats me done, read my list and I put 'add rafia'..??? can you see rafia anywhere.....niether can I, Wonder why I write lists??

Thanks for stopping by, and big welcome to my 2 new followers, thank you so much for joining me..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hello Chrissy

I had to go check out where you were when I read about your weather, we've had it like that for months so the current sunshine is more than welcome.

Your horse looks a pretty close match for a palamino, at least like ours anyhow. Loving the poppy background DP's the prefect backdrop for the image. I'm sure your granddaughter will love it.

I am thrilled that you have joined in my little fun challenge, thank you so much for taking the time and good luck with the draw for the voucher.
