Rocking Challenge!

Happy Monday morning everyone! Nope, my room is still not finished but it's getting there! We are taking our time and not getting in a big hurry. I just want to have my desk back by Wednesday and it's looking good! I promise photos or a video tour when it's finished.
Also speaking of photos, I get asked all the time about where are the wedding pictures? Well, she STILL hasn't gotten them back from the photographer! When she shares them with me I promise I'll share them with you.
Today I made a card for Taylored Expressions challenge which was to use this sketch. I flipped the sketch on it's side and made this

(click to enlarge)

How do you like my attempt at getting creative with my photo taking skills? I propped the card up next to a little stuffed dog that is really one of Riley's toys! LOL! The image is today's newest one a day in May releases called Rocking Horse. I also saw they released another new image that isn't part of the one a days. It's called Whimsical Posies and is one I can't wait to use! It's so fresh and airy looking and can be used for so many different occasions!

Back to this card though,the words are printed out on my computer in the Kayleigh font. I colored the horse with copic markers and used nestabilities dies for the circle and the scalloped circle.

I caught up on some of my blogs yesterday and saw that Crystal has passed on a wonderful blog award to me!

This just means so much to me; especially coming from someone like Crystal. I would like to pass this award on to
Vicki and
Each and every one of these wonderfully talented ladies brings a smile to my face every time I visit their blog!

Don't forget to spread the word around the Squigglefly is looking for a few new design team members! Details for that can be found here. Oh, and i just remembered that it's Monday and squigglefly should have a new challenge up on their blog today! Gotta go and check that out now!
I hope you have a great Monday, and thanks for looking!

Oh I MUST get this one! Each of my children have their own collection of Christmas ornaments that I started when each one was born. Carson's is the rocky horse! He now has 17 rocky horses! This is exactly what I need when I make a Christmas scrapbook or go back and add to his baby book! HOW AWESOME IS THAT! :)

You did an amazing job with the image, Holly! The card is so sweet and I LOVE the colors you used! Of course your coloring is FABULOUS, and so are all the details you added! This is GORGEOUS!

Very sweet Holly :) Like how you stamped the words up top like that and the rocking horse is perfect for a baby or even as a toddler card with a b-day saying? :)
