Follyfoot

Hello, hello my lovelies and I hope you are well today.

I am here to invite you to join in at As You Like It where the new theme is


It will come as no surprise that among my favourite literary guilty pleasures there happen to be a few that are equine in nature and my inspiration came from the Follyfoot series of books by Monica Dickens that became a popular TV series in the 70's and I sooooo wanted to be like Dora!!
Why did I choose Follyfoot? Well after my wonderful family my animals are so precious to me and give me so much pleasure, added to which they tolerate the nonsense that comes out of my mouth on a regular basis and don't judge me!! Case in point I can hear you yelling "shut up Sarah and show the card!!"......here it is



The rubber stamp is one of the very first that I ever bought and is called Charley with Willow that I coloured with SN pencils to match the pretty Pebbles paper. The sweet flowers were punched out of perfectly matching pink card (although looking at the picture it doesn't seem so!!) and I added a yellow gem to the centres. 

Some challenges to enter
Bunny Zoe's - Furry Friends

I'll bet that you are smiling the entire time when you're creating with a horsie image. This one is just darling, as is the little sweetie hugging him. Our DD loved horses as a child (and thank goodness now has just greyhounds, who are nearly big enough to qualify for a pony anyway!). We had all things horses with books & movies. Our fav was Black Beauty and we still have the old copy I read as a child. Your flowers match the pinks in that lovely chevron strip just wonderfully well. Hope you are having some fab weather to enjoy with Surprise. TFS & Hugs.
