It's almost that time of year again

Yes, there's only a day and a half of school left before 7 weeks summer holidays begin. Bring on the madness....


So this week is mainly going to be catching up on stuff and packing to go on holiday on Friday. Can't wait! 


This is a card I was commissioned to make. Now I was asked for a Father's Day card for a friend's dad (but from her girls) for Papa. And he likes horse racing....  


At first I thought, eeek! How on earth?! But then I remembered this LotV stamp. Perfect. And then I thought, eek, how do I colour a horse! 


But I checked my lovely friend Debbi's PM tuts and that helped me no end. I even emailed her the image once I had coloured it in, just to be sure! She said it was fine so I'm happy with that :)
