Feeling a Little Horse...

Coffee of the Day - Toffee Cream

I have come to discover that painting horses is so not my thing. after spending  more than 2 1/2 hours working on just the watercolor portion of one, I ended up throwing it in the trash and starting over. NOT FUN, needless to say. you would think after growing up around them that this wouldn't be a difficulty for me. nope. trouble city.

but I was asked to make a get well card for someone who's aunt loves horses. so I persevered. and it came out okay, but let's hope I don't have to do another one anytime soon. oh ick. I DO! I still have my western cards to finish this week.... oh well. bring it on, says the woman who loves to wear her brave boots! ha! ;)

so the horse image is from QKR Stampede, papers are from the Soleil collection by Basic Grey, ribbon is from SU!, buttons are all vintage, and flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. a small piece of burlap ribbon from May Arts sits under the flowers.

as with the photo from the prior post, this had to be taken quickly so hubby could get it to the person who requested the card. didn't have time to get my proper photo set-up put together.

Tomorrow is the last day to enter my Birthday Blog Candy, so be sure you have added your name!
Have a great week! :)
