Thank You For Carrying Me

Hi Everybody,

Hope your weekend is going great!  I got to go learn some more about grooming, and officially work my first day as a groomer the first week in November...Yippie!

Easel Card

This card was inspired by the challenge at "Stampin Sisters in Christ".  I wasn't even sure if I was going to get it completed, as one thing or another went wrong, and before it was over I had a major headache.  However, I was determined!  My first major issue was the horse.  A dapple grey horse has to be one of my favorite colors, mostly because of how prominent the dapples are - that was my challenge, and I hope you are able to see them in this card. 

The image is called "Cowgirl & Horse", and colored with promarkers, and Polychromos pencils (black area on horse).  The silver frame corners were made out of aluminum foil (tutorial by Scraps & Things), and the horse shoes were made with a/c duck tape.  For the life of me, I can't seem to find the tutorial on this one, but I will keep looking.  The papers came from a haul I got at my local thrift store, and I made the sentiments in Paint Shop Pro. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.
