This beautiful creature from Horse Frontier was stamped and coloured with sponging, aquapainter and markers before pasting it to a card front. I used one of my oval framelits to cut an aperture in a panel of Soft Sky card stock and stamped it with the sentiment and a decorative tab.
Horse Frontier also contains a horse shoe image which makes a great charm! I stamped it in Baked Brown Sugar on Crumb Cake card stock and cut it out with my sharp paper snips. TIP: When you have a very curvy shape to cut out, use oval or circle punches to start you off and then trim the straighter bits with your snips. The charm was pierced, threaded with linen thread and tied round the aperture.
I also wanted to show you this little tab detail above the aperture. It's from a new Christmas set in the new seasonal catalogue called Merry Little Christmas and I know it's going to be a very hard-working addition to the Craft Square Metre!

I am always touched at how lovely my readers are and I'd really like to thank everyone who has sent good wishes for my father and father in law. Just to update you, things have now stabilised for my father, and my father in law is now home from hospital with someone to come and help every day. I have the utmost respect for the medical profession but I think I really have had enough of hospitals for the time being!
See you tomorrow for more getting well,
