Autumn Pony

I just love this image. It reminds me of when I was a child and used to ride the old-fashioned carousels at amusement parks. There was one we used to go to that had the old WOODEN roller coasters. Wow! Can you remember those? The amusement park also had a huge carousel with all different colored horses. Those were the days.

Are you asking where did I find this image? Well, CJ of Cowgirls Up Designs generously gave it to me to work with as part of her DT team. You might want to head over to her store....there are so many spectacular images...and she just added a whole bunch of new ones!

You really need to check out the challenges at Cowgirls Sunday Stampen Challenge. Currently the challenge is to help out our soldiers by making Christmas cards which will be sent to them so that they in turn can mail them to their loved ones at Christmas time.It is a fabulous cause! Plus, there are lots of prizes being offered to challenge winners! So come on over to Cowgirls Sunday Stampen Challenge and check it out and make a Christmas card or two. Also, just a heads-up....next week's challenge will be any shaped card but square or rectangle, so mark your calendars for more fun and prizes!

As you can see, I was inspired by many other challenges as well in creating my autumn colored pony...here is the list of them:

Pollycraft - autumn colours
A Spoon Full of Sugar  - fall colors
Copic Creations - shading
Crafty Creations - music (carousels have music)
The Creative Cottage - birthday boy
Creative Belli - "B" themed embellishments (2 brads)
ABC Challenge - distressing
