Valentine's with Ike's World

Hello y'all.  Thanks for stopping in tonight.  I have a couple of post to make for tonight.  I've been making some last minute Valentine's Day cards.  I need to get a couple in the mail tomorrow.

We are in line for another snow storm on Wednesday.  I sure hope they either change their minds about the totals or that it misses us all together....16-28 inches.  Really??  I am not looking forward to that.  I sure hope the good Lord spares us.

My first card uses an image from Ike's World.  For those of you who have used Ike's images, y'all know that she can be a bit off kilter with her images.  So, with that in mind, I decided to make an off kilter Valentine's Day card.  

A bit different, right?  My daughter's best friend loves horses.  She has started taking riding lessons and is trying very hard talking her parents into buying her a horse.  It's not working very well.  I told my daughter that she could give this card to her BFF for Valentine's Day.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope y'all enjoy the rest of your evening.  God bless.

  6. I love this card. I LOVE Horses and this image is so cute. I love the way that you have coloured the image it is beautiful Thanks for joining us at TTPH - Becky DT

  7. Emily, this is so lifelike! I could barely believe their manes were not real hair. It is a beautiful Valentine's card, in a time when all holiday cards are going very untraditional. If you go around to Ike's World Challenge and look at our Blog Hop Roster and see a few of our blogs...you will SEE some really off the wall Valentine's cards!!! "off kilter" i think that is the biggest compliment I've seen about Ike! lol Her art is the best I've seen for exactly that reason. Nothing holds her back. She lets all the creative juice roll, no matter what - no restraint. True courage. And you have done just that with your card. I love that Emily. You really did Ike justice with this!!!!! Thanks for coming to the team entry. Good luck. You nailed it. Best, Samara DT Ikes World Challenge.

  8. This is so gorgeous! Your colouring is amazing and it's so unusual to see realistic animal cards.
