Alyah's Birthday


My goodness, it has been so long since I have posted.  Life has been SO busy, busy.  Fall is coming, so things should slow down a bit.  Hubby and I are now managing an RV park full time.  The transition has taken a big bite out of my day!  I'm getting a bit faster at my daily duties and will be moving into a bigger space with extra room for crafting soon. 

Today's card is one I made for my granddaughter, Alyah's 7th Birthday.  She is wild about horses these days (no pun intended, snicker, snicker!).  She also is a lover of purple and pink.  She was quite happy with her card and gift when it arrived in England.
The image I used is Gift Horse digi, by Whimsy Stamps.  Cardstock and DSP are from Stampin' UP! as well as the flower punch.  I colored this happy guy with koh-i-noor pencils and then blended them.  There is a touch of sparkle around the bridle and the saddle, but hard to see in this feeble example of photography.....

Wishing you all a bright, blessed day!  Thank you for stopping by!

What a special card for your special granddaughter! She must love it! The bits of sparkle are sure to add just the right touch. Those flowers are pretty also!
