I love toys, so I am very excited about this "Rocking Horse" challenge for I.A. (-:
As I was inspired by the Scrapbook paper image shown (as well as the concept of patterns, that I did a Creative Tuesday Challenge for over yonder: http://bit.ly/AC7i5k), I took a card I had made for Christmas while back.
And out of that, I created my submission. Shown below. It's the Rudolph-Rocking-Horse Repeated Paper Pattern! Eep, say that one a few times fast:
I aimed to make it a diverse pattern (as well as original card), since the character is riding a Christmas-inspired rocker, while wearing a Yarmulke. You can see in the original card both the Winter holidays of Channukah and Christmas are shown:
I actually was at a swap-meet a few weekends back (super cool spots, in which to get great deals on finds you'd never find anywhere else), and I saw this super cute short but stocky rocking horse. I wished I could have been little enough to justify buying it-- but all ended up being well, for at the swap meet's end, I saw a man who carried the little rocking horse off, who had an itty-bitty child with him who would be just the right size for the horse. Yay, pony found a home!
In any event, I hope everyone has a lot of fun with this challenge!

Because I can never resist a good pun, I will pun-illy-- but also seriously-- hope that everyone has a rocking weekend ahead of them :-p
