Birthday Card ~ Cowkitties {2nd Post}

I would like to start out with a big thank you to QKR Stampede 
for this and many other CUTE images I have won at their challenge 
and at ones they sponsor. Thank you for your generosity.

When I saw the QKR challenge theme this week it had me stumped.
I do not own many western or rodeo crafting items.
I wanted to use one of their images and printed off these singing cats.
Now for the theme... I got out this Cuttlebug cowboy hat die 
I have had forever but had yet to use. Now I have the perfect cowkitties.

While I was creating my card a childhood memory popped in my head.
When I was a kiddo we would watch a show called Hee Haw.
My cowkitties reminded me of a song they used to sing all the time.
I would sing this song all the time especially if  I was banished to my room
 for a time out. Here are the words as I remember them.
"Doom, despair and agony on me. Deep, dark depression excessive misery.
If it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all. Doom, despair and agony on me."
I can hear my little cowkitties singing it right now. Okay that's me.  lol.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.

*Cowboy hat cut using a Cuttlebug die from Provo Craft.

May your day always be filled with love.
