Rocking Horse Baby Card!

It is always exciting to be able to create a special card for a new mom to be! Baby cards are my favorite type of cards to design!

I love rocking horses! The little puffy, silk rocking horses at the bottom of this card were cut from a string of ribbon. They fit perfectly on this card, once I cut each individual rocking horse. I decided to go all out with pink; I guess I’m a bit old school on this color for girls!

I would love to create a card for you! Only $3.50 a card and you will have it in a jiffy. Contact me at horsemarkcards@gmail.com for special requests or more information.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! Enjoy your creative day!

Funny Birthday Cards!

Many people enjoy receiving a birthday card that makes them laugh! Especially birthday people who have celebrated many, many birthdays!

No matter what kind of a birthday card you choose to give, it is extra nice to present a real card! They can look at it later, display it, and remember their celebration. Plus, they will appreciate your thoughtfulness!

Here are two funny birthdays cards I created that will result in a smile, maybe even a chuckle or two!

I used the stamp set from ‘Inky Antics‘ to create this funny birthday card. When you scratch off the circles, the words ‘liver spots’, “wrinkles”, and “adult diapers” are revealed. There are many other words included in this set, and you can even create you own!

There are many embossing folders on the craft market. I chose one that looks like a quilt to create this next card. I used the top portion of an “Art Impressions” stamp of an old woman and tucked her in bed. My customer really liked this card!

Thank You for Your Blogs!

Hello and welcome to my blog!

While browsing through my Facebook feed, I noticed that some of my favorite blogs and friends’ pages were absent. Well, this seems to be the ongoing problem with Facebook as it tries to determine what we want to see. That’s another story.

This did prompt me to switch over to my wordpress blog feed and check out some bloggers that I was also not seeing in my reader. As I began to click on blogs that I was following, I found the reason for their absence in my feed. Many bloggers were no longer blogging, or had not posted for quite some time.

Blogging takes an incredible amount of time, so I can understand why some of these blogs became dormant, or were dissolved. Most of the blogs that I followed that no longer exist were not blogs that were sponsored or produced income. I would hope they were blogging for their own personal interest and they decided to take a break or move on to something that gave them the same sense of accomplishment that inspired them to begin a blog in the first place. I will miss them, but wish them success in their new ventures.

My blog is about four years old now and I still enjoy it. Many times I have slacked in posting on a consistent schedule, but I have always come back within a short time. Sometimes a break is needed to recapture the spark of blogging , or personal life takes priority over preparing a post.

If you have a blog and are still enjoying it, I wish you well and hope it continues to give you good feelings. For those that have stopped blogging, or those that are thinking of starting a blog, I also wish you the best. Whatever one decides to do, much happiness to you!
