Cowgirls Don't Cry

 A closer look!
 Even closer!
 Left inside of my card!

 Right inside of my card!
I took some time and played. Somehow I thought when you retired that you would be free to do whatever you want, whenever you wanted. Instead, I seem to always have something that needs to be done, needs to be fixed, or I have been asked to do. Some days, I just have to forget it all and play. LOL! Does anyone else feel that way? This stamp is from cab I purchased to make a card for one of the cowgirl friends I have. I wanted her to look a bit on the 'girly' side so I chose pink as the dominate color on my card. A pretty gingham ribbon and some matching buttons from Queen and Co. added some additional country charm. The pretty rhinestone hearts add some sparkle to the card. My sentiments is from Sweet and Sassy stamps. I hope you like this fun card and I also hope you can take time to play today! 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: Cowgirls Don't Cry (Brooks and Dunn)
Her daddy gave her, her first pony
Then taught her to ride
She climbed high in that saddle
Fell I don't know how many times
He taught her a lesson that she learned
Maybe a little too well
Cowgirls don't cry, ride, baby, ride
Lessons in life are gonna show you in time
Soon enough you gonna know why
It's gonna hurt every now and then
If you fall get back on again
Cowgirls don't cry

What a great image and a very different one too, wonderful colouring , really lovely card.
Yes I got more done when I was working than I do now that I am retired and certainly don't seem to achieve as much I did, or is it the face that I am getting older and slower?
