Cupcakes and Horses

My youngest daughter is off at a wonderful birthday party for a great friend.  Her friend is obsessed with cupcakes and ,of course, horses.  She had been eyeing the cupcake fabric in my stash for some time.  So it seemed a no-brainer to make her pj shorts from the fabric.  I used my favourite pattern, Kwik-Sew 2811 


My daughter came up with the idea to put a cupcake on a saddle pad.  I had previously purchased this design from Urban Threads.  No one else will have a saddle pad like this!

My daughter is very good at card making.  So while I was embroidering she made this beautiful card and envelope.  Oh, and her friend loves glitter.

It is hard to read the glitter but it says "You deserve a day sprinkled with fun."
I think she did a wonderful job and I wanted to post it here.

Thanks for dropping by.

I appreciate any comments you take the time to leave.
