Just swingin' by

I really miss swinging! I wish I had a dollar for every hour that I spent on our swing as a little girl.
I miss that - not a care in the world - where your only decision was either: will I go higher, will I spin around or will I try to touch the fence. 
So on my manic day of dropping kids off, food shopping, picking kids up, driving in the rain, cooking dinner between deliveries and putting on a load of washing  - I would really like to do some swinging.
I have realised - it is not the same without an actual swing.

This adorable image is from Lili of the Valley and I am entering this card in the following challenges:

  5. Hi Jenny
    This is such a sweet card. Your colors are so pretty and perfect with your paper. Swinging seems to be my thing these days except I'm the one giving the push!
