Ride 'em cowgirl


A very quick post from me in my lunch break. The snow is still laying everywhere although no more has fallen today. It is very cold still and unfortunately so was our office as the heating had broken down. The heating company were doubtful of getting anyone in to fix it so we had a choice of staying in the cold, going to another office to work or taking work home if we could. Luckily I had some work I could put on a memory stick so thought I would post this card, eat my lunch and then get to work. I can't describe how lovely it is to be warm at home after freezing for 3 hours at work this morning. I'll be back later to catch up with you when I finish working.

This card is for a good friend of mine who is mad about horses. She owns a horse and also loves holidays in America so when I won this image a while ago I knew it would be perfect for her. It's a digi image but I don't know where from, sorry I can't credit anyone. Papers are DCWV, sentiment is Craftwork Cards. As her Birthday is 27 December I decided to add a touch of sparkle with some gold zigzag trim and gold fern and brad on the flower.

Hi Marianne, this is a lovely card and you are so thoughtful to make it with a special friend in mind down to the last little detail. I hope she loves it. I finished work this afternoon until after New Year now, it is such a relief but I have so much to do!! We have been lucky down here and have had only a dusting of snow but it has been very very cold, brrrrrr! Keep warm Hugs Jo x
