I used all those same colors for her as well.

These are two other cards I have made up for Christmas. I approached a few of the local tack [horse riding equipment] stores, and one has bought a dozen, and wants more of the horsey cards.
They are printed on a high-quality watercolor-like paper, with matching envelope. I am offering them for $4.50 each or 5 for $17.50. The shipping will be $.50 to the States, and $1.00 to Europe. If you are interested, please leave me a note. The funds are all safely handled through paypal.

|I added some mid-ground trees and a fence line, and I am calling it DONE. You all know I am not much for painting landscapes, but this very ethereal, foggy scene does appeal to me. Might do more ...|
