Would You Like To Swing On A Star?

Or would you rather swing on a flower?

The whole time I was making this card I found myself humming and singing Would You Like To Swing On A Star. Do you remember that song? We traveled a lot growing up and my dad would sing songs while he drove, and I remember requesting that one a lot. We'd get silly with it and make up our own verses too sometimes, but the song brings back memories for me.

Well, this little bug isn't swinging on a star, she's swinging on a flower!

This adorable image called Katiebug On A Swing is from the wonderful imagination of Jackie Mathews and will be available at Squigglefly next Saturday. I colored it with Copic markers and used chalk on the ground and sky. Then I used a grass stamp from Art Impressions over the chalk on the ground.

The designer paper is from K and Company and I used some to decorate the inside as well!

The little poem is one I made up and printed out with my computer. Since this week's challenge at Dare You To Digi Stamp is anything goes, I'm entering it there!

I'm going to try you sneak peeks of several of the images that will be released next Saturday during the next week. There are so many wonderful ones and I'm excited for you all to see!

Did you see today's One A Day In May image? I love this one too! In fact, I'm going to go make a card using her as soon as I get back from my walk with Riley! I hope you have some time to craft today too!

Thanks for looking!

love that song!! My grandfather used to sing it to me, and we found a music box with this song in it one day when I was pregnant with my first child. Put it in his room and the room of all 3 of my boys eventually. Love it, as well as your adorable card. Now I can't get that song out of my head :)
