Love My Sarah Kays!
I love remembering when things were simple. I love going to school when I was younger and when I discovered books, I discovered passion. I couldn't stop reading. Dick and Jane readers gave way to Dr. Seuss and then I discovered Laura Ingalls Wilder and Little House on the Prairie. Then came Nancy Drew. Oh, how I loved those books. I loved that I could open the front cover and go anywhere I wanted, be anything I wanted to. My imagination took off and hours could go by and I wouldn't realize it. Some of the Sarah Kay stamps remind me of my trips to the wide opens spaces that Laura lived on and that's The case with A Little Help From Margo. I could replace Margo with my sister, Jonalea, and me as the little sister, only I wasn't quite as angelic looking as this cutie is! One thing I discovered was I'm more like Nancy than Laura!
Every time I see a flower garden, I think of my mother. She can make anything grow! I was embarrassed one time when I sucked up my air fern! But I've learned a lot over the years in gardening and she's right. There's nothing closer to being in heaven than being in a garden, down on your knees, feeling the dirt between your fingers and getting under your fingernails. If we give it love, the earth gives us back beauty. Rose's Garden was done with my mom in mind.
Most of everything on these cards can be picked up from Summer at Roses on Paper. were colored with distressed inks and done for different sketches. A Little Help From Margo was for the weekly Paper Craft Planet's sketch, and Rose's Garden was for Madelyn's Twinkling Tuesday.
