Just Horsing Around!

Felt Up to a little crafting today,I ache all over but after yesterday's antics it was only to be expected. Can't believe that I'm not black and blue all over, I certainly should be lol!



I thought I'd get my challenge fix today whilst making a card for a friend's daughter.I used the Suzy 2 set of stamps by Marij Rahder that they have in stock at Scrapbook Sisters, if you've not called by my blog before,take a look through previous posts to see lots of other cards that I've made using other stamps in this set,they are so scrummie to work with and a big favourite of mine! The design paper is actually one of the freebie type that you get as a giveaway in a crafting magazine,I usually forget to use these but for once found the perfect match for my project. The number was cut using the sizzix Bubbles alphabet set,I just added some strips of matching card to make it into a sunshine then added stickles to them. I did something that I'm not in the habit of doing and masked off the horse to stamp the fence then also masked this to sponge up the background,time consuming but I'm fairly happy with the result. I couldn't find a flower punch small enough to add daisies to the grass though so instead opted to add spots of liquid pearls to represent them. I added some liquid glaze to the horses eye too.
I'm using this card for a whole host of challenges,
