Swinging


If I had a little girl instead of my 2 wonderful, muddy, dirty, boys, this is what she would look like. But, since God blessed me with my boys this is the closest I will get to a little girl all frilly swinging on a back yard swing.

I was inspired by Michelle Zindorf for this card, cased her, added my own touches.

I used 3 different sets on this card – kinda played mix and match. The girl is from SU’s A Kind Word, the branch from Eastern Influences and the leaves from Touch of Nature.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

Beautiful card Michelle...Just a word from the mother of a girl....I could NOT get her into dresses as she was growing up! The biggest tomboy there ever was. She turns 22 in September and is only NOW begining to want to do the girly stuff with me...For years I used to tell her I was ripped off...I had a girl so I could enjoy doing girly things...but good things come to those who wait! I am getting some quality girl time now.
