Growing in Unity Day 4 . . . Imagination!

 Hello sweet friends 
and
 a very warm welcome to Day 4 of my
 I know I keep repeating myself but I have to say thank you to you all for showing me such great support!
Today I have chosen the stamp 
and the sentiment from
 When I was a little girl I loved the swings, the feeling of flying through the air as I went higher and higher . . . butterfly tummy . . . holding on tight . . . higher, higher . . .
anything felt possible back then.
 Then we get older and life becomes hectic . . . but as the quote says
" Imagination can take you anywhere "
we just have to remember to dream, hope, wish
and
 with a sprinkling of imagination we can still do anything
 . . . 
the sky is the limit!
Sooo did I use coffee today . . . YES I did, lol and my house has a distinct yummy aroma!
Have you cracked open the coffee yet?

Giveaway - please remember to leave a comment on each post this week for the chance to win 2 Itty Bitty stamps courtesy of Unity Stamp Co.

Thank you for looking!
See you tomorrow for my last day.
Till than
Big hugs

I loved swinging, too. I'm sure I still would if I went to a park! I LOVE your coloring. I'm not they artistic type, so I wouldn't know how to do this. Have you thought of doing a video? I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see how you would color something like this. Actually, this exact project....

Annmaree of Oz said...

TRACY! I have a complaint.... I just can't keep up with all your goodies!! SO much awesome stuff to see...

I love that stamp so much, she looks blissfully happy and having a blast on her swing there! Fantastic primary colours on her outfit, really helps make it pop!

Karen Petitt said...

Another beauty - love the quote and that image is so carefree - wonderful use of colour. I am going to have to invest in some Unity stamps some time in the future! Karen x
