Giddy Up!

My sister loves horses - always has! I can remember when we were youngsters (of course that wasn't that long ago!). She wanted so badly to be a jockey - well, except on the days when she really wanted to be a horse. She was crushed when she grew too tall to pursue that career choice. Instead, she became a Math teacher and in her spare time - when she isn't teaching or grading papers - she's hanging out with the horses that she and her friend own.

So, when I see/use a horse image/stamp, I always think of my sister. And that makes me happy!!!

Giddy Up!

The image I used is called Friends Forever. It's a Delicious Doodles image.

Great card Jeanette - the girl in the image almost looks sad that she can't be a jockey ;-)
