Unicorns and Rainbows - Pink Saturday


I have always loved the artwork of Lisa Frank and I treasure this card featuring her art.  It was given to me by my daughters when they were small.  Back when they were in grade school, everything--folders, backpacks, notebooks, pens and pencils--everything a kid would need for school, was covered with the bright colors of Lisa Frank's amazing imagination.

Now my precious children are grown and gone--today I cherish this sweet reminder of their love when they were little.

Happy Pink Saturday--For more wonderful things in pink, visit Bev at How Sweet The Sound!

Happy Saturday, Beth! Oh, I too have long had an affection for Unicorns! As a young girl, I held a VAST collections of cards, by various artists, which were all matted. They graced the walls of my bedroom as a mass collage. Such magical creatures, are they not? I used to hope and wish that one day I would come across one ... quite the imagination, eh?
Thank you for this post and lovely card it gave me the opportunity of recalling some wonderful memories!

I am lucky enough to live in Tucson...the home of the Lisa Frank factory! My daughter and I spent many happy times visiting the outlet store located in the brightly colored factory building. She is a sophomore in college now, and long past the Lisa Frank stage, but it still holds fond memories for me.

I think that things from loved ones are definitely the things I cherish most, and I can understand why you love that card! It's so happy, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by my nest to visit. It is very nice to "meet" you!

XO,

Sheila :-)
