Happy trails

You know, it feels good to make something that is not Christmas related. LOL I had some time in the studio yesterday- I got two cards done. BUT, more importantly I did manage to get most of my things put away. LOL I had left my most used tools and papers out on the counter top so when I could steal a minute or two I wouldn't have to use that time dragging everything out. So here is my card-

A Happy trails birthday card. The image was inked with Cognac and then the Burnt Umber ink pad was touched to the edges to add a little more color. (Just remember to always ink up with the lightest color first.) I used the Rustic Chic designer paper, I think it works with the horse image so well.
One of my goals for the new year is to add more detail to the inside of my cards. I usually just stamp a sentiment. Here you get a peek at the cardstock added to the inside. Another goal is to add small details. This card has lots of rounded corners, scrappers floss, spiral clip, ribbon and the edges were all sponged with Burnt Umber ink. The sentiment on the front is from the Oh How stamp set.
Today's blessings-
** Mom has her last Radiation treatment today**
** The kids are back to full health, and eating all the time**
**A New Year**
**A warm home on a cold and windy morning**
I hope you all have a very Happy, Healthy and Blessed New Year!!
Until later~
