My brother-in-law had a birthday this past weekend, and I’m late getting his card sent but here is what is going in the mail today…
My sister Kendra and her husband (known by everyone as Townsie) have a great little farm, and they have an abundance of dogs, and pot-bellied pig, and five massive Percheron draft horses! So I just had to pull out The Whole Herd stamp set by Birdie Brown from My Favorite Things for his card. I also used the matching The Whole Herd Die-Namics, the Rolling Hills Die-Namics, the Cloudy Day stencil, Blueprints 13 (for the sun) and Blueprints 15 to cut the back panel from Gumdrop Green and Blue Breeze card stock.
I colored each horse to match the horses at my sister’s farm. Three are all black, as most Percherons are when they’re young. Here is one of her beautiful horses at the county fair just last week, along with the Best of Show trophy!
This is Super Grover and my sister (holding the trophy) at the Henry County (Ohio) Fair last week.
And most Percerons, as they age, turn a dapple gray like Gonzo, shown here in this photo from the fair with my sister’s friend Chris…
Two of their horses who stayed home last week are black like Grover, and one, (the oldest affectionately known as Grandma Hilly because she’s named after our Grandma Hilda) is all white. Here’s my daughter Kelsey riding Hilly back in the winter. Isn’t she beautiful?
So you can see why I had to have five horses on the card, all colored to match! :)
Since I colored with Copics, I'm entering my card in the current MarkerPOP Blog Anything Goes challenge #76 this week.
Thanks for stopping by today!
