Big News!


By now, most of you know that one of my sisters is an equine surgeon. I often make cards for her to give to friends and clients. But now, she's making a big move - she and her husband are leaving Wisconsin and moving to Virginia! She's busy organizing, packing and saying good bye and I know that one of the hardest good byes will be to a certain 'redhead' named Harley and the people who are involved in helping her learn to ride him in various horse shows.

This Whippersnapper Designs image is perfect for this occasion (almost - I changed the horse's face a bit with some masking and a black pen) - I don't often colour this much, but I was happy to make 3 of these for my sister's friends (along with 20 other much more generic "May the Horse be with you" cards).

Gorgeous coloring, Ardyth! I cant' stand coloring that much space, but you did it perfectly and adorably! Great card, and congratulations to your sister. How exciting!!

What an exciting new adventure your sister is embarking on - and now you'll have a new place to visit! Your card is adorable; I'm sure the certain 'red-head' will be deeply touched when she receives this. Twenty-three horse-themed cards on your plate = wow! May the horse be with YOU as your craft way; they'll all be marvelous!
