Birthday Horsin’ Around feat. Copic Coloring and Ink Blending

Simple and cute baby card created using Little Cuties stamp set from Stampin' UP! and ink blending and copic marker coloring techniques Wendy Cranford www.luvinstampin.com

I grew up riding horses.  I even had my own horse off and on through the years.

In 2007, I made a big mistake.  I got on a horse out on 80 acres, that hadn’t been ridden in 3 months and I had not been on a horse in over a year.  Do you see where this is going?

The horse, Jody, was trained on moving cattle (cutting, roping, etc) So in the horse world this translates to the horse wanting and loving to chase cows.

All of these mistakes combined, landed me with a broken back and months of recovery in a body cast.

I still love horses.  But I never ride.  I haven’t ridden since.  In fact, it’s the only time in my 10 1/2 years of marriage my husband, basically forbid something.  Since he was the one to care for me for all that time, I listened.

That brings me to today’s card inspiration.  I am coming up on my 10 year anniversary of my accident.  I can’t believe it’s been 10 years.

So I thought about how much I loved horses then and how grateful I am that God spared my life and allowed me to still be able to walk.

I thought I needed to make a horse card just for fun.

Can’t ride em’ …. create with them….

February Paper Pumpkin Kit & Giveaway

Crafting in a box, this is the February Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin' UP! Wendy Cranford www.luvinstampin.com

I’ve shared before that I love Paper Pumpkin before.  But I have to share it again.

This months Paper Pumpkin kit is beyond adorable and so completely versatile.

I have grabbed a couple ideas from some of my friends blogs on how to alter this kit, they won’t mind.  I put the kit together in the way Stampin’ UP! shared.

Katina Martinez March Paper Pumpkin Idea

Roberta Timmons March Paper Pumpkin Idea

I always do.  For me the Paper Pumpkin kit is an escape from having to come up with the idea of what and how to put something together.  It always me to play with paper and not think.  I love that.

So I refuse to force myself to create alternative projects.  However, I have plenty of friends that enjoy doing that and are very good at it.

If you have not signed up for Paper Pumpkin, or if you use to be a subscriber and no longer are, I highly recommend signing up again before April 10th.

Here’s why.

Sara Douglass, CEO of Stampin’ UP!, has designed her own featured kit.  It will be April’s kit.  If the box it’s shipped in is any indicator of what’s inside it’s going to be PHENOMENAL.  They created a fun box just for her kit.

Also, Sara is giving away a gift in every single box.  How cool is that?

So don’t delay.  Sign up for Paper Pumpkin today.  (you see what I did there, the rhyming)
