Karen's Doodles - Oldies But Goodies

This card is for Karen's Doodles Oldies But Goodies post over on the Challenge blog! It is a great resource for those forgotten images that are AMAZING!!! So, go ahead, dig out yours and have some fun!!!

I have used PRINCESS PONY - a very pretty image for little girls' cards! I coloured this image with Copics - the pony IS grey, I promise, but you can hardly tell in the picture!! LOL

This image reminds me when I was younger and I used to go to a residential horse back riding camp in Ontario. On the Sunday before camp was over, we used to perform skits and things on our horses for our parents. It was so fun, but always a sad time for me, because my parents would never be there. I flew to Ontario by myself to go to camp that my brother and his wife's family owned. At least I had them there!!! Anyway, Sunday Parade Day was always fun and exciting & we could show off what we learned!!

I used Melon Mambo CS (SU) and Green at Heart DP from Simon Says Stamp. The flowers were created using my SU flower punch and the gems are from my stash.

Designed2Delight challenge

This week, the freebie this week is CAUGHT A BUG from Designed2Delight. It is a really cute set, comes with 2 sentiments, the jar and a few extra ladybugs. It can be used for many different occasions. If you didn't get this freebie, head to the shop and pick it up, and start joining us for freebies EACH week!!!! It's so fun and SO addicting!!! LOL

The CS is Emerald City by Bazzill and the DP is from SU. I coloured it all with Copics and added crystal lacquer to the entire jar. Hard to tell in the picture but it does FEEL like a glass jar!! LOL
I also popped out some of the bugs. The sentiment is a stamp I've had for a VERY long time, not even sure who made it - I unmounted a ton of my wood stamps and this was one of them. MOST I remember but this one evades my memory!!! LOL

Thanks for stopping by!!! Have a GREAT Tuesday!!!
