Rida Rida Horse

This is Rida Rida Horse. Barbara drew him up just for me, my Grandma use to rock me on her knee and sing the little Rida song to me. I don't know many of the words because half of them were in Swedish, but I remember it having to do with riding the horse to town. What good memories I have of her. The brownish background was Thanks to Barbara and the Tips, Tricks & Techniques OX021 she taught yesterday in her blog, Forgotten Scraps. It was really fun to do.
This card is for Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge #6 Stitching, so come on over and join in with us.
