The Year of the Horse

Welcome back crafty friends and followers,

It's back to school for me today, so this one's scheduled to appear as if by magic - hope the little blogger fairy is doing her stuff!

It's time for our next challenge over at Cardz 4 Guys and what a fab response to our Monochrome challenge last week - it was a tough decision to choose the Top 3, but why not pop on over to the blog and see my choices. Now onto this week, and Caz has decided to join in with the Chinese New Year which begins its celebrations on the 31st January - so our theme this week is:


We would love to see your male themed projects showcasing anything to do with HORSES. Now, we are only on challenge three and this one gave me a headache - do I own a stamp with a horse on, no! Oh well, a perfect excuse to go out and buy one then! Lol. Here's what I came up with for my DT inspiration ...

I couldn't resist the stamp, which funnily enough is called 'Rocking Horse', from Stampendous - I can't wait to use it on a vintage style card, but I hope this one looks suitably masculine. The music score backing paper is from my stash and is layered onto brown cardstock. I added a little colour to the stamped image with my Promarkers and finished off with a piece of polkadot ribbon.

I can't wait to see your interpretations of the theme this week and shall look forward to visiting your blogs throughout the week. We did comment on how many entries had used horses last week - a bit spooky don't you think, but I hope we see some of those stunning images paying another visit this time.

Hugz, Jan xx


  1. Gorgeous card and image Jan.

  2. Adorable, I have coveted that Stampendous stamp, thinking it would be wonderful for vintage cards, ah! well as they say great minds think alike. I love how you have created this card, the BP are perfect. A great excuse to buy another stamp. LOL Hugs Wonderful DT work. Caz
