Dancing horses

One of the famous horses and a couple of well fit trainers !

This is your last clue folks as we will be at sea now until we dock back at Southampton. We are at the region of the Dancing Horses of Jerez and the City that gives it's name to one of our favourite marmalade's.......oranges that is with two 'L's in the middle.


It's Kerry's turn to set the theme at Polkadoodles this week and she has given us a really great sketch to work with.

Hope you don't mind Stacey, but I have twisted your sketch a bit as Rudolph turned out a bit larger than I expected. All the elements are from Paper Boutique Christmas, Rudolph has been decoupaged, his hat is glittered and the snowflakes made using a Martha Stewart punch. The NOEL sentiment is from the same CD.

I will be sorting the candy winners when I am back home and will post all the details as soon as I can on or after 9th August. Watch this space.................

Woohoo...I got to answer a clue first. Hope I get it right now. Could you be visiting Seville? The photo of the horse above is amazing....just like your card. You certainly were busy before you left with all these posts and creations. Happy sailing.

Have loved your trip Brenda! Your last stop would have been in Seville, the Andalucian capital! (I swallowed wikipedia! lol!)

Mags said...

My goodness, what a fantastic picture of the beautiful horse! (May I recommend a book, 'Airs Above The Ground' by Mary Stewart? It's a romance/thriller which includes the Lipizzaner horses, and even though it's quite an old book, it's excellent!!)

I hope you've had a fantastic time!

luv, Mags x

peggy aplSEEDS said...

well, i am really having a geography lesson! so you are in Seville!

Rufus said...

Seville! I've always wanted to see the Lipizzaner stallions being trained. I was lucky enough to see them perform once. Absolutely incredible. Oh yes, the trainers don't look bad either! HA. Rudolph is looking in his prime on your card. Thanks for taking us with you on your vacation, it's been fun.
