Make A Wish!

Do you remember telling the time with dandelions when you where a kid , if I see them in the garden in their yellow form they are quickly dugout as the seeds soon spread, they look kind of magical when in seed , in mass blowing in a field.
This Mo Manning image "make a wish " really appealed to me , she is a cutie but her red canvas vans style  boots give her a great modern twist. Mo really knows how to capture children.
I coloured with pro and flex markers to match the papers. The papers are Family Ties by first edition , I've inked the edges in chalk ink. The heart ribbon is docraft and the sentiment a great impressions stamp. I used a nestie circle die to cut out the center and a round woodware punch for the sentiment.

challenges entered : 
sketch n stash : followed the sketch bellow 

creative card crew : punches/dies

The above pics of my garden taken through the bathroom window , the clematis is always a welcome sight.
Well I wished for sun and my wish came true , Bob is in the garden painting pine furniture , we are giving it a distressed shabby chic look. I'll post some pics when it's finished.
Enjoy your day and a big thanks for the kind comments regarding our friends death , my thoughts and prayers are with the family.
Happy crafting. janex

I have a little secret Jane, I still pick them up and blow the time, it's sort or a natural reaction every time I see one.

Your garden is looking lovely, I think the late spring suits the clematis as our Montana is also a mass of blooms.

And a lovely sunny card to go with the weather.

This is a lovely image and it definitely brings back some childhood memories. I also remember how I wasn't allowed to pick dandelions when I had nice clothes on. My favorite thing about them was that we made strips of the stem and put them in water to see how they curled up into beautiful swirls. Your card is a beautiful version of the sketch!
