Sock Hop and Equestrian Fabulosity!

I have to start by saying how wonderful it was to watch my niece ride this week-end. Isn't she beautiful! And, so talented! She'd just finished the course at this point and she and Chief were heading out of the pen. I've seen her jump at her house (she's got jumps in her front yard) but it was great to see her all decked out and in competition mode. So proud of her!!!

Spent the week-end with family so didn't get much stamping done but sure had fun! So, here's a card I did recently with the fabulous sock hop set we got at seminar after our super fun sock hop (we even had some crashers from the wedding dance next door - that's how fun it was!). I used the clear gelly pen on the glasses and also to add detail to the poodle. Love that pen! OK - you really can't see it even when you click on the photo and make it larger so you're going to have to trust me on how shimmery and fabulous that detail looks! Just Because is the perfect stamp set to finish it off (outside: "Just Because" and on the inside it says "you're fabulous!). Don't the scalloped scissors make a great detail on the edge of the sentiment! Love them! And, guess what - my card is a perfect fit for Heather's sketch (ok - it's perfect in my mind - lol!) so pop over to see what she does with it too!

Happy Stamping!

  6. She look so smart on that horse, in control. Can see why you are proud Aunt!

    Great card Seleise - sorry haven't been past too much, with winter we have a house full of flu and sickness and somethings just had to take a back seat. Hope your well.
