I made this while I was a Dirty Girl with SplitCoastStampers.

The central theme was, “It’s the little things.”

When I was young my grandparents had a swing at their house attached to a tree limb that was SOOOOOOO high up!  Something I will never forget.  I asked my father how high it was…20-25 feet.  This cracked me up as I would have guessed 50-70 feet!  lol.

I colored this and then kept going with how to mount it…first, I mounted it on some cardboard, then cut it out and rounded corners, then mounted it on paper and book board, rounded corners again, and finally…made  a hanger! I made this for the “More is More” challenge and now I cannot figure out which is more!
