Cool Pony

Christmas is almost here!!  
I have another card to show you today in which I used Zoe's "Make It Crafty Blending Card".  I can't say enough great things about this paper.  It is a total DREAM to work with!  I recommend it for Copic beginners and experts alike.  I get zero compensation for saying that, I am not affiliated with Zoe's store (we are just good friends!).  But I am just in "paper love" with this stuff!! ha ha!

Before I go on with my card deets, I want to be a proud Mom and ask you to vote for my daughter Ashley!  She is in a contest in which the winner gets a recording contract! You can go take a listen to her song HERE and vote for her!!  It is for the MMG's top new song of 2011! She is in the TOP THREE!!  Woot woot!!  Please give her your support!! 
She has an album out and I have a link on the right side bar if you want to listen to snippets of the whole thing.  You can order a hard copy or buy it from iTunes!

I used my image for Whimsy that I called, "Cool Pony".  I wanted to draw a Shetland pony because since I was a young girl I have thought that they are the cutest breed of pony!  I love their shaggy mane and fetlocks and short little legs -- so cute!! ha ha
