I've been wanting to use this Swallow Stamp
Finally, something presented itself that it would be perfect.

I used the theme of swallows returning to San Juan Capistrano as my
inspiration for this card. The swallow and border are by Inque Stamps.
The floral layer is clip art from Dover Publications . It isn't bouginvilla but it
will have to do. The rest of the layers are in sage green and lavender
and I distressed the edges with my scissors. I love the
soft look of this card.
I spent several years in Los Angeles. At that time I was
married to a man that loved to explore. We spent many
a pleasant hour behaving like tourists in our own area. San
Juan Capistrano is one of the many places that we visited.
I really did see wonderful things while I was living in
the LA area. My daughter, Susan, and her husband, Will,
live in the Silverlake District of LA and they constantly
take advantage of what LA and the surrounding area
has to offer. I always enjoy visiting Susan. She always
has a wonderful adventure planned for us.
