Default WT425 - Get Your Derby On! (05/02/13)

Happy Thursday!

Some of you may know this and some of you may not, but the Kentucky Derby is this Saturday, May 4, 2013. It's the first race in the elusive Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing here in the United States. It is followed by the Preakness Stakes and then the Belmont Stakes. It has been suggested that winning these three races is the greatest accomplishment of a Thoroughbred racehorse. Another bit of trivia, it has been 35 years since there has been a Triple Crown winner. Affirmed was the name of the horse that last won the Triple Crown in 1978.

For your card or project today, let's uses horses. For those of you who have played along before...I'm pretty easy, no challenge police here. Just make sure you sell me in your description. I have attached samples from Sabrina and myself.

Remember to use the keyword, WT425, when uploading your project so we can all see your creation. It helps if you link it up back here too. You can view the entire gallery for this challenge HERE.


Need help linking your project? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your project and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your project window. Highlight the address for your project. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Mine is here : A Winner in The Race of Life
I knew I didn't have any realistic horses like your wonderful image, Toni - but I'm glad I had a lightbulb moment late yesterday and remembered my little Sheltie.

I once had a job in the UK in a house which had once been a stud farm with some race-horses too. They still had some most beautiful horses in the fields, and the owner was able to tell me stories of bringing horses over to the big races here in Ireland.

Clever, timely challenge, Toni. I had to put on my thinking cap and come at your challenge from a different angle since I don't own any horse stamps/die cuts/ etc.......maybe if I were in the "horsey set", I would.

I can never remember the name of the technique where you make it look like the horses are running by stamping them in a row? Anyway here's my Run for Father's Day

I've had this wonderful deadbeat DESIGNS horse for years but have never used it. Thanks for forcing my hand today. Now I know why I fell in love with it and bought it!

Here is my card for today's challenge!

Hard to imagine that the Derby is already here. I just watched the movie of Secretariat. A Triple Crown Winner is really a jewel!!! The horses on my card are just running 'with the wind'.

Love today's challenge, Toni, even though I own only one, tiny stamp with a horse on it. Beautiful images in the gallery today, and I love watching the Triple Crown races each year!

While I was waiting for my DS to move a bookcase down to my stamping area I made another card. This one uses yesterday's sketch as well as the Embedded Image technique. Happy Father's Day Wanted
