Charging into the Fray




Good Sunday evening! I hope you all had a good weekend, ours was busy but good! This afternoon I decided I wanted to make a card so I started looking around for a challenge that fit my mood. Low and behold Stampin Sister's in Christ had the perfect challenge and the perfect sketch was provided by Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

Stampin Sister's based their challenge on Genesis 1:26 which reads:  "And God said, 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."  Kathy Winter is the challenge hostess this week and her challenge is to make a card/project using a land animal, mammal, fish, bird or creeping bug.


This was perfect for my mind set today so I used one of my all time favorite stamps. These horses are so beautiful, it reminds me of a herd of wild horses running free. My background was made by tearing some paper to use as a guide for the mountains then sponging color on for the grass and sky. Very muted so as not to take away from the focal image! 

Well, that's about the story of my late afternoon, thanks for coming by! If you get a chance give me "hey" while you are here. (that's NC for "hello") 
.......I have no idea what is going on with blogger's text sizes......
