Springtime Pals

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life blog this last day of February.
And, it's also leap day. It occurs once every 4 years.  How many times have you said- if I only had a bit more time. Well we are getting an extra 24 hours - so enjoy!!
We are in the middle of a bathroom remodel. Our contractor is here working now. He is amazing. I thought I would have dust and dirt everywhere. We closed off all the doors upstairs and covered the bed and particularly my craft room with plastic drop cloths. I am so surprised that the dust is so minimal after taking out walls, the old tub and the toilet.
My craft room is closed off for a few days. I could to in there to work but I would have to remove all the drop cloths to get to everything. I am not interested in doing that. This card I had done before he showed up to work.
I made it for a group post on the CottageCutz Blog. To create my card I used the new Springtime Pals die. I thought the die was so cute and my precious little granddaughter loves horses so this card will go to her.
I used various colors of Stampin'-Up cardstock to cut the elements. Used a light blue designer paper for the background. I cut the fence in a naturals white cardstock and then used weathered wood distress ink and sponged. The horse was cut in a caramel cardstock and I used the same color of ink for shading. I liked how it turned out.
The tulips are from another CottageCutz die. I just thought the bottom of the fence needed something as an embellishment.  To finish off the card I added my Easter phrase and a couple of clouds.
Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time...….God bless.
