LO for Pickleberry Papercrafts' Sketch Challenge #6

Well, I couldn't wait to get started with my next kit from GirlBoheme Studios: Sail, Sail Away, which can be found at here !! (As you can see already it's very versatile, this not being a sea-themed LO, LOL!!). But I also wanted to have a go at the new sketch challenge at Pickleberry Papercraft! I've been to this relatively new craft shop a couple of times with friends and rellies, and have always received such a warm welcome from Kate and Jane, not to mention a cup of delicious coffee!! If you get the chance GO THERE!! It's packed with scrummy stash of all kinds, and makes me want to forsake digi for a while and get back to papercrafting!! Anyway! I love to use a good sketch, and this one must have been good, as my LO came together so quickly!!!
We booked a family group lesson on Bank Holiday Monday, 31st Aug., as Andy was having his first ever ride!! He did really well actually!! Antoinette was VERY priveliged though, to be given Seamus, who is now the owner's husband's horse! When he came to the stables, he obviously had a period of settling in, but then Antoinette was the first paying customer to be allowed to ride him in a lesson! Before her only staff had been allowed to ride him! He's pretty large - 16++ hh (I'd have to ask Antoinette for the exact height...she seems to know every horse's height by heart, lol!) and thundered round the indoor school when in canter. You could tell just by looking that he was really comfy for Antoinette to ride - like a big old sofa!! She loved riding him, and the fact that he's not used in lessons any more, usually, made it just that big more special for her!
Now I'm off to play a bit more with this gorgeous kit!
