MMSC100----Yes!! 100

Hello ladies and welcome to a milestone celebration, this is the 100th sketch for Midnight Madness! 

I was fortunate enough to get to work with an image from the new stamp set called Horse Head Stamp Set, you can find it at Priscilla's store. I love, love, love this image! Here is my card for this week, I hope you like it!

 Make it fancy or CAS, or anywhere in between!

Being from Texas originally I gave the card a western flavor. I have a mare that looks very much like this image and used to show her in AQHA shows (American Quarter Horse Association). The saddle I used for showing had silver trim on it as did her bridle. She was gorgeous all spit shined and tacked up to the hilt! We only showed for about 3 1/2 or 4 years, it became just too expensive, but those are memories I thought about while making this card!!
Here is the inside, love this quote and it sort of expresses the way I feel when I ride. Horses are such elegant animals, their beauty is breathtaking!

Here is the envelope above and one more shot of the card below. Please join us this week, this is such a wonderful sketch to work with! Don't forget to visit Priscilla's store for the latest images, you will be delighted at what you find!

This is beautiful, Donna. Our neighbor across the street just brought his horse and put in a fenced area to graze and it looks just like yours. My husband and his family used to have horses but that has been quite a few years. We still own the barn and land here in town but no horses. Love your extra elements which give it such a beautiful touch. Tfs your card and story.
