Swimming Events

     Have you ever known a horse to participate in organized swimming events?  Nope, me neither.  But the challenge theme today over at QKR Stampede is "Swimming" and I had my favorite, fun, horse image I wanted to use...  So the only thing to do was to find a great QKR Stampede sentiment which would tie it all together.  :-D  Image:  Running Horse Digi 16111,  Sentiment:  You Can Lead...  Digi 13005


     The image is colored with ProMarkers and cut with a die from Spellbinders.  The sentiment is printed, then hand cut.  Both are inked on the edges.  The brown ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, as is the ribbon I used to tie the bow.

     The background paper is left  over from a kit someone gave me (maker unknown) but I had already used everything else in the kit except some matching washi tape and this paper just made me think of water so...

     One more really CAS design and you must all know by now how much I love humor on my cards.  :-D

  12. Connie, you are TOO clever! LOL! I love how you tied your horse image into the theme and quite surprised that you were able to find the right sentiment with which to do it.

    You make my laugh and that is only one of your most endearing qualities.
