Swing Into Spring - Day 2!

Remember those days as a child running outside with not a care in the world? Today's sneak peek brings back those memories - when an old swing tied to a beautiful tree just called your name and didn't care how long you spent going back and forth beneath the tree's branches.


Introducing.....



This fanciful set drawn by the talented Lauren Pope is really like nothing else on the stamp market today! There are different elements aimed at creating scenes to help you get in the 'swing' of things. There's a beautiful child waiting for someone to give her a push and a grown woman who isn't afraid to be a kid at heart! All the images in this set are sure to bring a smile to your face!


Want to win this set? All you need to do is leave a comment on this post. It's just that simple! We'll announce the winner in tomorrow's post!


As you swing your way out of here, be sure to check out the fabulous samples our design team put together!

I had a rope swing with a board to sit on tied to a branch of a large cedar tree when I was a child. I would swing as high as I could and sing my heart out (totally off key... mostly monotone!). I still love to swing high (I'm 61!) when I swing with my granddaughter :) Would love this set.
