A Horse is a Horse, of Course, of Course

Here's a peek at what's coming very soon from My Favorite Things! This set (which I looooooooove and is quite possibly my favorite MFT set EVER) is called Punny Farm, and even thought I'm not a farm person, for some reason I totally fell head over heels for these farm animals.

This particular horse is colored with prismacolor pencils to look like Nellie, my mom's filly. I knew wanted to keep a rustic feel, since I'll probably send this to my mom, so I picked out this paper by My Mind's Eye Tres Jolie collection to go with it. It really does coordinate in real life...the little crosses in the circles are a perfect match to the Soft Sky paper. I promise! *wink*

A little stitching, distressing, sponging and a few hemp knots and I think it's the perfect "Get well, Cowgirl" card. I hope you like it!!

You'll continue to see more sneak peeks over the next few days, (especially if you search the Splitcoast Gallery for the keyword MFTDT!) and then Kim will be hosting a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday night (January 9th) from 9-11 pm EASTERN time. Come prepared to chat and have a ton of fun...these ladies are a blast! The party will be held on the MFT member forum HERE.

this is sooooo cute! I laughed right away at that phrase - that one stamp alone would probably sell the set to me - just adorable!!!
