Create a Card

 It's Wednesday, so it's Create a Card day!  As I write this post, I'm waiting oh so not patiently for our broodmare to have her baby.  It appears that it should be today, from the signs we're seeing, but, as with any child you really never know when they'll show up.  LOL!  Poor Mama is only 10 days away from being pregnant for one year.  Horses usually go between 11 and 12 months.  She's rather large and the foal is really active, so I think she'll be thrilled when it's over.  LOL!  This will be baby #5 from her.

 Well, I didn't get a chance to get this finished and posted before the mare delivered.  It's another girl.  Cute as can be and very strong.  She's going to grow into her ears.  LOL!  Check back tomorrow as I'll post a couple of pictures.

Now, here's today's Create a Card. :)

This is another card created using CTMH's Fabulous You stamp set.  The papers are from a variety of different paper packets.  The dot paper is from the retired Olivia paper packet.  The stripe is from the current Buzz and Bumble paper pack.  The one with the leaves is from the Flirty paper pack that was available in the Fall/Winter idea book.
