Keep Calm And Saddle Up!


Hi, Friends......

I have one more card to share for the Allsorts 13th Birthday Celebration.
A gal asked me to make a horse-themed card for her brother's 18th BD.  I got out some fun horsey supplies and got to work.  I had to use my computer to make the 18th BD sentiment, but the other one was stamped.  I did not get the ink colors to match perfectly but they are pretty close.  I chose twine tied in square knots for the suggest a rope halter.  

Supplies used include:
Elizabeth Craft Designs - Farm Greetings stamp set (retired)
Memento Ink - Rich Cocoa
Distress Ink - Frayed Burlap
Scraps of Patterned and Solid Cardstock from my stash
Twine from stash

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Have a lovely rest of the week.


Thank you for the honor of entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. A beautifully done card, Janis. Love these colors for a horse themed card and the twine is such a great addition! Thank you so much for joining us again at Allsorts' 13th Birthday challenge!

  2. Wonderful card. I like the twine square knots.

  3. I join the other commenters in loving the twine and square knot. What a great design for a horse lover, and I think I recognize that patterned paper as being from the paper pad that you sent to me several years back! Is that horse shoe background stamped? So fun!

    1. Now the reply function is finally working for me......Blogger gremlins were driving me crazy!
      Yes, you nailed it. That paper is the same as the pad I sent you a long time ago. And yes the horseshoe background is stamped. Thanks for noticing! <3

  4. Sounds like a perfect card for the recipient, thanks for sharing another at Allsorts 13th Birthday celebrations.
