Digital Tuesday Challenge and WOW what a week!

Well it's certainly been a CRAZY week...K and I have been at the All American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio since last Thursday, I'm only home for a brief bit because I had to testify in court for someone...and I go back to the Quarter Horse Congress today. Now this horse show is THE horse show of horse shows...the largest single breed horse show in the WORLD...and it's fun, it's exhausting (how much fun do you think it is riding a horse at 2 a.m.? YAWN...LOL...we do this EVERY NIGHT...it's the ONLY time there isn't a class in the arena that we can practice...ugh!) and it's expensive ($7 for a breakfast biscuit is IN.SANE!), but the clients love it and as a trainer you HAVE to show up and the shopping is outstanding...it's a MUST BE AT event... What I love about it is that we get to see all of our friends from all over the country for over 2 weeks in the same place...so there's some socializing too...the horse world is actually VERY small and close knit (which has it's ups and downs LOL).

On top of all of that I sold my grey horse Boo (boo hoo!), it's a bittersweet sale as he's part of the family, but I just don't have the time to dedicate to him, but he's going to a great home in Ontario, Canada! I told Boo he's going to go International...I don't think he cares...LOL... The little girl that bought him adores him and rides him just like he needs to be...perfect home...I'm just gonna miss him...so, good home, but bittersweet for me...I HATE saying good-bye!

Ok, now you've read through all of this, let's get onto the card for the Digital Tuesday Challenge and this week is THINGS WITH WINGS! Now how FUN is that...you can do anything as long as it has wings. Our sponsor this week is Sassy Studio Designs and our winner will get to pick 4 of their images...you really need to look at their website...they are SASSY and I LOVE it!

Now onto my card, I decided this week to choose a fairy from the Pink Cat Studio line, I think she's soo cute and was such fun to color! I colored her in with my Copics and then did a little stickling on her antenne and wings... My flowers are daisy's from the Martha Stewart line, but I added the pink centers with my Copics and then added my yellow Stickles to the centers (I also stickled each scallop that my fairy is layered on). I hope you enjoy her this week! Thanks for looking!
