I have been frantically stamping my borrowed Paperbag Studio images all day today; I am determined to mail them out on Monday, and I need my Sundays to be "stampless!"
I had the idea for this card earlier. I originally wanted to put some of the lyrics from "Sunrise Sunset," but I wasn't sure that most people would get the connection. I could not find any childhood romance type quotes, so this was the best my tired brain could come up with! :-) The flowers that look very red in the scan actually blend very well with the pink of the girl.
Here is a portion of the lyrics I originally wanted to use part of:
Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don't remember growing older
When did they?
When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he get to be so tall?
Wasn't it yesterday
When they were small?
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears
