Horse shoe

So I thought I would show you a couple of the CardMaking Paradise projects I've been working on of late.  I loved working with this template, such a fun card to make:

I inked all the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink and then cut the horse and rider as well as the sentiment out of backing paper; decoupage the rider, then reinforced it with card.  I then cut some grass out of green card making two layers for a 3D effect.  I finished off with glitter, flower sequins and cosmic shimmer glue for centres.

I inked all edges with Black Soot distress ink.  I found images of boots and hat on the internet and made 3D toppers.  The rope I made from embroidery thread crocheted it and used it for the hat and lasso.  Finished off with gems.

Catch Up

Hi all sorry I haven't been around for a while so much seams to have been going on!!!  My eldest daughter anounced that she is expecting her first baby in October, due to this we have helped her move into a bigger house.  My youngest daughter announced that she expects her second baby in November!!!  So it's going to be all go at the end of the year!!  Due to my ever expanding brood of granchildren I decided to move my craft room into the smaller office space down the stairs to make more bedroom space for when they all come to stay :) took me well over a week to perform that task!!!
I hope to get back into some crafting now that is all sorted, there seams so much to fit in.

Will catch up with all your blogs A.S.A.P

happy crafting
