My mum's birthday is in March... I never know what to get her. She loves riding and horses but a lot of commercial horsey stuff is kinda... well... bleh. Anywho, I've just started on an inchie obsession and I LOVE the way that a group of framed inchies looks. Soooo, I thought that I'd frame a group of horse themed inchies. Here's my head start...



... what I'd really like to do is swap for more horse inchies so that there is some variety in style/look/feel. My family doesn't quiet understand swapping but everyone thinks it's cool that you trade with people from all over the world.

***UPDATE: Here's the finished lot...



framed all pretty and stuff Smiley

I sanded the edges and curved the corners with an emery board (the ones you use for doing your nails) and then rubbed the edges on a black ink pad... just like you'd use a knife on butter.

Those are really great. I've never ridden a horse, but I've always appreciated their beauty. I'd be happy to have a personal swap with you for some inchies--PM me if you're interested Cheesy (assuming we aren't in the same group in the inchie swap of course....that would make things easier!)

Those look so great together, and I love the curved edges!

I'll have to see if I can find any horsey things here. If I can I'll make some up and send them your way.

Those are beautiful. I love the color palette and the rounded edges. Where did you get your images?

All of the horse images are from Clipart ETC (http://etc.usf.edu/clipart/) the ladies are from a vintage site which has an equestrian gallery. The ETC site is a fantastic resource!
