Emma's World - FMS90




Can't beat bright summer days or a bright summery card!  And on a recent summer day at the lake that little one who brightens my day set off to explore.  After about 5 minutes of playing on a blanket she went off to see the sights - so many interesting things to see on the lawn you know.  She was undaunted by the vast expanse in front of her and just kept crawling and crawling.  My daughter snapped this picture and it reminded me of Andrew Wyeth's painting Christina's World!  But it won't be long and she will be running across that lawn!









I am delighted to be hosting at Freshly Made Sketches this week!  Sure hope you will join us!

Great post, Linda! I love all the little extra details on your card. It is a sketch that will appeal to me. As for Emma, that little munchkin will be difficult to keep up with when she does walk/run! Such determination! Give that sweet girl a kiss for me, please!

Love your sketch, Linda and the bright summery feel of your card. Such a contrast to the cold, grey and wet in Melbourne!

Hi Linda, Thanks for the sweet comment on my card and I love the Vellum tag so you don't cove any of the pretty up. What a grand idea. My gosh Emma is growing so fast. How darling and thanks for sharing.
