  13. Very pretty card. Love those punched snowflakes.
    Thanks for the visit earlier...Little Miss C currently has the use of a hosre to ride at her uncles, and takes lessons...but...
    her heart is set on a pony and somehow I think she thinks a horse trailer to take it to shows and pony club comes with!!! Me thinks she will be making a lot of cards. teehee
    My sister was an Olympic 3 day event...she has all her riding friends watching for a pony that needs a good home. So perhaps the pony fund will just be for a pony saddle etc.
    This pony business in the city is a fortune! It was sure different when my kids grew up in a small town and kept their ponies on the family farm.

  14. Gorgeous card Jo, love the colours you have chosen greta colouring
    hugs Shaz x
