Life is a Beautiful Ride!

Hey there! I have a quick card today for CASology's challenge this week, their cue word is {spin}. My first thought was a spider and a web. But that felt too much like Halloween. Soooo, I started a search through my stamps and came upon this little tire swing by Impression Obsession. Those childhood memories of sitting in a tire swing and having a friend twist the rope around tighter and tighter came to mind. When they let go I would spin round and round with my head hung back, long hair trailing behind me and giggling!!



This is pretty straight forward and went together quickly. The tree and little dots are Stamps by Judith and the sentiment if from the Precious Remembrance Shop New Day stamp set. 




Thanks for visiting, have a great day! ~Lisa

What a darling, gorgeous card. It reminds me of growing up in the country on my parents hobby farm. You know a card is good when it evokes that type of emotion!

Brilliant! Yes, we twisted the swing up tight and let it go...then we'd SPIN for as many rounds as it would go! So dizzy, but so fun! Lisa, this card is so delicate and gentle...reminds me of an illustration in a Winnie the Pooh story book! Just precious...and the sentiment is perfect! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!

What a great idea Lisa - so original. And the spider web too..I didn't think of either of those!Love the little pops of pink on the tree...beautifully CAS!

So very pretty, Lisa ... what a delightful depiction of the Cue card ... so charming! Hugs, Anita :)

Jen W. said...

Both your ideas are brilliant, Lisa! A spider web - why didn't I think of that?? I also remember spinning around in a tire swing and then try to run in a straight line but inevitably ending up in a heap on the ground. Those were the days! :) Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

Melissa said...

Oh, this is SO perfect, Lisa! I have fond memories of tire swings too! Yes, spinning was most definitely a part of the experience!!! :) Love this one layer design so much!

What a great memory and what a great direction to take on the cue word. Love this sweet image! I miss those tire swing days. Kids these days really don't know what they are missing. Simpler is better if you ask me! :)
