Good Afternoon Readers,
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend ...... I had a lovely day yesterday, spent my one day a week with hubby.......  we only get to spend a Sunday together, work commitments and all, the weather wasn't to bad, we took the rabble for a lovely walk late afternoon, then watched the fellowship of the Rings (again) on our return, it's amazing how you re watch a film and not remember bits from the first time you watched it, but it is still an amazing film, we will be watching part two this evening, I am on annual leave from work this week so plan to spend some quality time together .....
This morning was much the same as most of my morning's unless of course I am working ..... so went up the yard, have done one of the things on my to do list, cleaned out my feed room ..... it is lovely and tidy at the mo, not sure how long it will last mind, tomorrow I tend to tackle my tack cupboard, and ride my horse, weather permitting...... had a relaxed coffee with the girl's and a chat, which is always nice, we tend to put the world to right's, talk about our family, and generally, give each other advice, and the occasional shoulder to lean on ...... our topic of conversation this morning, was the stables Turkey and Tinsel party, that is being held on Saturday,  myself and my daughter Teresa will be going, Hubby does not like social gatherings ...... so he has kindly offered to drop us of and pick us up, as we sat chatting, the sun was out then all of a sudden the clouds opened up, and it tipped it down with rain, so I ran out to my truck and took a couple of pics of an amazing Rainbow, also took another photo of my boy Ace, looking quite relaxed in his stable.... on my return home, I decided to have a play around with one of the new computer programs that Hubby got me for Christmas, unfortunately, I am not very good when it come's to shading, I never seem to get it right, I look at all the beautiful Designs that Crafter's have done, and they even have the highlight's in the hair, my Mum is perfect when it comes to shading, but not me, mine looks like it did when I was a child and coloured in my colouring book's, I do try not to go over the edges, but I'm not always successful !!!!!!!!

Recipe for my Design,
White Base Card size 5 by 5 
Image by Pantheon Arts and Graphics
The whole of my design has been layered using my Do Craft's Digital Programme, 
The Image was a solid object, but I used the programme to rub out some of the background, to make it more of a silhouette, then just layered on to it the objects I required, on a couple of the images I have faded them, so they do not look so harsh, giving the overall effect a more Vintage Look. I must admit, I did enjoy doing this design, and will certainly use it again.....
