Pony Up Cowgirl

Hi everyone! Sorry there was no new post waiting for you this morning. I slept in really late due to the pain pills and muscle relaxers I'm on. I notice a little improvement in my neck today, but it's far from well. I truly appreciate the get well thoughts and wishes! Also, whoever anonymous is thanks for the advice about using cold packs. I did the ten minutes with heat and ten with cold and that does seem to help more than just the heat.

I browsed some blogs when I got up and found the sketch at Dare You To Digi Stamp and thought I'd give it a try.




(clcik to enlarge)

I used the Cowgirl Up image from Squigglefly. I just love this cute cowgirl! I added some buttons to her hat, but I had to color them with my copic markers to make them red. My little lasso embellishment was made with some hemp cord. My lasso making skills are lacking, but at least it looks like rope.

Okay, I'm off to do more neck stretches! Hope you all have a wonderful day, and thanks for looking!

Sooo glad you're feeling better! I knew right away, when you hadn't posted this morning, what had happened! Those muscle relaxers will knock you out cold....add pain meds and you are definitely a goner! You are a devoted trooper for sure! :)

This card is adorable! You did such an awesome job on the sketch, and all your details really add to this precious image! Boy howdy!!!! :)

I hope tomorrow you'll feel even better. It's definitely not a good way to start your weekend! Just know we are all thinking about you! ;)

Hi Holly
It's anonymous again (with the advice for hot and cold method). Glad to hear you feel some relief. You may want to try just the cold and see what that does. If very cold (like an ice pack or bag of peas) wrap with small towel - you don't want to freeze the area. You really gave your neck a good strain. Wishing you well soon.
