every tree needs a tire swing


Yes, don't you think? I never had a tire swing growing up, but that would have been so much fun! Actually, us kids did tie a rope around the bottom branch of the cottonwood tree out back and now that poor branch has grown around it and the rope is still stuck in the middle of it. It was the best climbing tree though! I'm so loving how this turned out! I don't know why I thought of the tire swing, but it works so perfectly with this tree. I thought about sponging in grass and sky, but I didn't want to mess it up - so white you get. I was nervous enough putting the 'wish big' on there, ha! Okay - I LOVE this set.

Now you go find a tree with a tire swing and relive your childhood!

  1. Yes every tree should have a tire swing even if it's big or little. It's so cool how you use an eyelet for the tire. You did a fantastic job on this card.
