I've Got Horses & Birds, Oh My!

It's April Fools Day, and I'm not kiddin' around, Doodle Pantry is having a new release of some really awesome images!!!  First up is Carousel Horse 3. Isn't he a beauty?!! I love the way he's colored (yes, this is the pre-colored version). Hard to believe I'm saying that since I am so NOT a fan of purple!! And did you notice, I didn't use any digital paper either!! Crazy, I know, cause there's 8 different papers to choose from in this set. 

Here's a card using a set previously sold at CDS, Bird Mothers. In a month, if it ever warms up, I'll be getting my hummingbird feeder up and ready for their return. They are so fun to watch, so tiny and oh so fascinating. I love this Mother Teresa quote, so I decided to make it the focal point of my card.

I have to tell you of a devastating accident I had involving these two cards. They were sitting next to my keyboard when clumsy me knocked over my tall mug of hot tea, ruining these two cards! Needless to say I had a bit of a meltdown!! Yes, it spilled onto my keyboard and power cord to my brand new Cameo! And I cried for my two cards!!!!! They were the only things that were ruined for sure. Good thing I had already taken my pictures!!

Wow, 2 outstanding creations. Your designs rock! So sorry your cards were ruined, but happy you got the photos to share and didn't have to redo your cards.

Beautiful work, Linda!

So sorry to hear of your mishap...I have done that with Coke too. Not fun. Love your cards though!

Oh my word Linda, your cards are incredible. Both of them are just lovely.

I had to re-read your post to find out what the "mishap" was ... apparently I was STILL reeling in shock after reading that you don't like purple :-)

That stinks about the cards because they are (uh, were) stunning. Another thing we have in common tho, I too have knocked over my cuppa in my craft area! While my hubby yelled at me over the computer, I sobbed about the loss of the cards! Silly of me but computer = easily replaceable.

These are really fabulous Linda, love them both. I know the feeling of split liquid on freshly made cards but so glad you had these great pictures to fall back on! Thanks for joining us at Lexi's Creations!

Ignore my Lexi's comment, but all the rest is true:O)!!

I LOVE both cards Linda, especially the horse with all the white! I know what liquid does to cards, ouch, hope your computer and cameo survived, thank goodness you took photos earlier!
