Christmas Carousel Horse

I must apologize that I haven't been visiting blogs lately.  I have been in a lot of pain with arthritis since the weather has gotten colder.  I wasn't allowed to take anything for pain for a while because of my kidneys.  They are apparently normal again and the doctor gave the okay to take an anti-inflammatory.  Thanks goodness.

Anyways, this past Christmas I sent quite a few purchased cards which I prefer not to do.  This year I'm going to try to finish one per week so I'll have plenty when I need them.

This image I found on Deviant Art, it's by Heather Luciana.  She gives permission to use her lineart as long as she is given credit.  Here is a link to the image:

I colored it with Copic markers.
C00, C0, C01, C02, C04, C05, E31, E33,   E35, E37, G05, G09,
 R22, R24, R46, Y28, Y32, YG13, YG67, YR16

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Inspiration Destination   Anything Goes
7 Kids College Fund    Anything Goes
ABC Christmas Challenge Z for Zebra-Use Stripes
Christmas Card Challenge  Anything Goes

This is a beautiful card! Your coloring is always so gorgeous & your designs so perfect. I'm glad you are feeling better. I can sympathize with you! Mine has been flaring up as well. The joys of aging! Happy New Year!!

Diane, this is so beautiful! What a wonderful idea to make Christmas cards all year long too. I'm so sorry to hear you've had health problems but hopefully this new year will be better.
