Welcome!

So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

This one is Cowgirls Rule! I used some dp from my stash, MFP, Snow Storm Smooth and Groovin Grape cs for the background. The images were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens. The horse image was diecut with Spellbinders Frame2 Shapez. Sponged the background with Vivid strawberry and brown. Added some brads from Oriental Trading and a few purple jewels and a birthday card was created! In case you can't tell, her favorite color MUST be purple!
