Hanging on the Line

Had a little more time to play with my new There She Goes Loads of Fun set. Any time I see a laundry line it reminds me of my Nana. We would spend time with her in the summer and she always hung out her laundry. We loved to help her. The laundry always smelled so good after it dried in the sun, probably had something to do with the salt air from living near the ocean, too.

Thought it was good timing on Mother's Day to post a card that reminded me of my Nana Fran. She is 96 now, and while her body is weak, she is still sharp as a tack.

The Tuesday Morning Sketch #44 was just perfect for this image too. Great simple sketch, I'll definitely come back to this one again.

I wish all the moms and grandmoms a happy Mother's Day. Hope you are spending time with your loved ones. Maybe even relaxing a bit!

Stamps: There She Goes

OMG that is a sweet little stamp, and fun to color as well. Hope you had a wonderful mother's day.. sorry for not posting for a bit- it has been crazy at our house: no power, hubby in hospital. So I am a bit behind.

This sentiment is SO fun -- a sure way to give a friend a lift when they are feeling washed out! Cute image and the DP is so fresh and happy, too!!

What a clever sentiment and I think this card is so very pretty. Nice way to think of your Nana, bet she's proud of your card making
