Don't Worry 34

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, October 10, 2010 @ 4:16 PM | , ,

Hi There! Hope you are all having a great weekend! I am on call for work which means being tethered to a pager and having a 1/2 hour allowance response time. I made the most of being confined to home and played with my papercrafting goodies :)
I love the sweet innocence of this little girl silhouette image. She reminds me of carefree childhood days when skipping through the meadow in search of a dandelion, that had turned to seed was the most important thing! For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, FTTC87
 Did you ever wish upon a dandelion as you spread their seeds about? :)
That's all I have for today - I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday! Thanks so much for visiting :)
