Bah! Humbug! #26 A Special Friend

For this week's challenge I have used a photo of my special friend, Finn, my Fell Pony galloping down through the snow to have his breakfast. The photo was taken in March this year. If you look closely in the top left, behind the red gate you can see Finn's field companion Jeffrey the tup.

Each year, for the past 9 years, we have sent Finn's breeder Heidi a photo of Finn and a Christmas card - guess what she is getting this year!

The frame around the photo is from Crafty Ann's and the holly and berries are coloured with Sakura Stardust pens and then accented with Glossy Accents. The backing paper is my own design in shades of blue and silver, cuttlebugged with the holly folder.

Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment - all appreciated.

  5. Hi Janet, re: the triple embossing... The substrate was mat board so all heating had to be from the good side. I think I need to have more practice.
