If you get lost along the way, you can always return to the Challenge blog for a list of the DT members in hop order.  Blog Hop winners will be announced on Monday, February 21st before our next challenge. 

Remember my letter today is  E so write it down and collect them all.
 
 We are using Stamp of the month set called Wildlife- it is only available at Sweet Stamps.
30034 Horse Portrait Oval is one of my favorite I also used 30014 Horse, 30075 Covered wagon from the set...Are these some fun sets or what? This set also has three adorable sentiments to choose from


I used some retired paper from CTMH and knew it would be perfect for this challenge.
I needed to add some "rope" so I used three sassy strands and braided then for the lasso look.
The brass hardware is also from CTMH.
 I loved these seals and couldn't resist using them in a quick card. Shapes cut with Spellbinder shapes.
Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Even the 3016 sentiment came with this wonderful set- isn't that fun?
If this isn't one of the most elegant images I have seen I don't know. Isn't it beautiful?
#3009 Swan Family was so fun to use and I am not sure I did it justice.
Spellbinder shapes were used to cut the shapes.
And now it is time to continue by hopping over to our very talented Jackie R's blog.
