Imagine a World

***For my Lawnscaping Blog Hop Post, please click here or scroll down!***


"Imagine a world without toy dinosaurs, or camping on bedroom floors. Imagine a world without the magic - of why,  or a cape on your back that makes you fly. Imagine a world without spacemen and then… Imagine a world without gannappolasses which we all know is a cross between giraffes and hippopotamus’s. Imagine a world without crayons on the wall,  or Daddy’s 10 feet tall. Imagine a world without tricycles and bicycles,  or hot summer days with melting grape Popsicle’s. Imagine a world without Cowboys and Indians and then…Imagine a world without gannappolasses,  which we all know is a cross between giraffes and hippopotamus’s. Imagine a world without tag and baseball, or red rover come over and lemonade for all. Imagine a world without ferries and Santa Clauses, or bunnies and baskets and no good causes. Imagine a world without skinned knees and chins and then… Imagine a world without gannoppolasses, which we all know is a cross between giraffes and hippopotamus’s. Imagine a world without laughter and smiles,  or braces with wire miles and miles.
Imagine a world without fireflies and ladybugs, or arms reaching up for good night hugs. Imagine a world without children and then…You can imagine a world without gannoppolasses,  which we all know is a cross between giraffes and hippopotamus’s." ~Bob Densmore





Happy World Card Making Day, my crafty friends! I couldn't imagine my world right now without all the friendships I've gained by being a part of the paper crafting industry. Thank you!

I've got an one layer card today that features the sweet Butterfly Kisses stamp set from The Craft's Meow. I started by stamping lightly the butterflies in the background and then the silhouette image and sentiment in a bright pink. I finished the card by adding a touch of color with markers to the wings and flowers.

The Craft's Meow is celebrating with you this weekend by offering a coupon code for a 15% discount in the store! (This includes an additional 15% off of already discounted sale items.)
