This is for the Tuesday Teapot challenge. We were to bring horses, pigs, cows and hogs the kind you find on a farm or the kind you ride. (Swine or motorcycles) I chose to make a horse card this time as I've been sending Jesse cards throughout especially with motorcycles.
I thank everyone for sending your cards off to my friend Jesse. I just feel so bad that he has cancer but I'm sure you'll bring a smile to his face when he starts receiving cards from people around the globe.
He will be surprised knowing that I did something sneaky but that's ok. :)

Sneaky that ends up being a good deed is okay in my book! As you know, I'm doing that for my Mom's b.d. right now. This is a terrific card. Like the design, image, colors. Jesse is lucky to have you as a friend, and I'm sure you feel likewise. He sounds like a wonderful man and I'm glad I was able to join the Teaparty and make a card for him. :)

Connie, what a beautiful and still manly card for your dear friend Jesse! I love that you are so sneaky and glad to be able to join in the fun!
I LOVE that color blue and with the neutrals it really pops! Using the twine for trimming, so GREAT!!! It really adds to the rustic feel! Fantastic card for Jesse! Can't wait to hear his reaction!

Your back ground is great like wood grain and the image and verse are so very nice. Like the use of your twine and brads. Good friends are allowed to be "sneaky" when it brings so many warm wishes Jessie's way.

You are a wonderful friend to do this for Jesse. I know he will appreciate these cards, as my dear SIL still looks at her cards every day when we did this for her. It's such a simple thing to do for someone who needs some light in their life. I love your card with the distressed edges. Your twine treatment looks really cool too!! Please let us know how Jesse liked all his cards.
